The movie stars Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson along with Hannibal Buress, Isla Fisher, Rashida Jones, Leslie Bibb, Jon Hamm and Annabelle Wallis. At the center of the story is a group of five childhood friends who started playing tag when they were just nine-year olds. The game would be played every May during the same month that Jerry (Renner), the most elusive player, would be getting married. The aim of the game was to tag each other in unexpected places at unexpected times, such as mid-air during a business meeting.
Now, as adults, the group is still playing the game every May, leading up to Jerry's wedding day. However, the gang has gone their separate ways, living completely different lifestyles. One of them, Hoagie (Helms), is a successful businessman, and he decides to unite the group once again to beat the elusive Jerry. Hoagie manages to track down the other players â the laid-back slacker Chilli (Johnson), the always-on-edge Sable (Buress), and the recently-divorced Bob (Hamm).
The game of tag provides the opportunity for the five friends to reconnect and rekindle their friendship, as well as to bond over new experiences. In their attempt to tag Jerry, they embark on a wild, unpredictable and adventurous journey.
The movie is full of humor and is capable of making you laugh from beginning to end. The ultimate chase between Jerry and his friends is full of surprises, thrills and slapstick moments, as they try to outwit and out-tag each other.
Not only does the movie have laugh-out-loud moments, but it also has a heartwarming theme about friendship that will touch the audience's hearts. It teaches the valuable lesson that no matter how long it has been since we have seen each other, true friends will always pick up right where they left off.
