So this is what Hawkeye has been up to, and yes this is going to be a real life movie.
The simple joys of being a kid. Picking your nose, no worries or responsibilities and most importantly, acting like a complete idiot with your closest group of friends. Remember the game tag? We all played it, it’s what brings us all together at such a young age. Well for some group of friends it has kept them together for the last 30 years. That’s right this is based on a true story about a game of tag that has occurred every month of May for the last 30 years. Jeremy Renner’s character is the best who’s every played and has never been “tagged.”
Seriously, this is going to be a comedy that drops this summer and my god it has such a terrific cast. But the movie itself, well at the least the trailer itself, looks a little weak. A little flat footed if you ask me. None of the jokes seemed to hit me (that’s a tag pun) and the overall concept is just kind of lame.
Like I mentioned the cast is stacked, we all need a little more Hamm in our lives. Jon Hamm does great work in comedies so it will fun to watch him in this, but I don’t know something just didn’t sit well with me. This has all the makings to be a great comedy. All they really need is a strong cast and a decent premise, but most important the jokes need to stick. Rashida Jones and Isla Fisher are even on board and those are two very talented laides.
I don’t want to judge a movie based on a single trailer, heck I know I’ll be checking this out in theatres just for the cast alone. We need more great comedies, but from what one trailer showed us, I don’t think this will be it.
Check ya later
