A really heart warming film that was made all the more heart warming by the fact that it’s based on a true story.
This film follows five friends who have been playing tag since they were children and are now way into adulthood. One friend has never been tagged and so the other four friends decide to go to his wedding and finally get that tag that they’ve been waiting for all these years.
Surprisingly this movie kind of reminded me of Robert Downey Jr‘s Sherlock Holmes, I feel it took a lot of it’s inspiration for how it set up the tag sequences and stuff from that film, and it was so cleverly done and such a delight to watch.
With the ending however, after the big climax of the wedding, we find out more about certain characters and it really brought home how important these sorts of fun traditions are and how enjoying your life to the fullest is really the most important thing that you can do with your time on Earth.
It may just be a silly little game of tag but the actual deeper meaning behind it is so much stronger, and I think anyone could learn something from this movie. Yes it is silly and fun, but it also shows people that life is what you make it and if you make it fun and enjoyable then you’re going to have a happy life regardless of how long it lasts.
I didn’t expect to get such a deep moral from this film but I do highly recommend it because, while it is fun and very dumb, it’s also very sweet and will make you think about what you want to spend your life doing and how you can make your life as full as it can be. That doesn’t mean owning a fancy house or having a £1 million job or having a huge family, it just means making the most of every day and enjoying yourself as much as you can.
What do you think of Tag?
Until next time.
