Tag! You're It!

As a young girl, I've participated in my share of games of tag. Running free, trying to catch the next person. There was no feeling quite like it. So imagine my excitement when I found out there was a movie with the game as its main premise.

The story follows a group of friends who have been playing the same game of tag for 30 years. They play it for the entire month of May. What pushes the movie over the top is the fact that one of the participants has never been tagged and he prides himself in that fact. Most of the movie revolves around the group trying to tag their friend.

Along the way, we find out that the movie is more than the hi-jinks that ensue. It's about the bonds of friendship. How the game keeps them close even through the passage of time.

I will not spoil what happens, especially toward the end. But what I will say is this movie is based on a true story. During the credits, they actually showed footage of the real life men playing tag and the lengths they would go to just to tag their friend. It's actually quite funny and heartwarming.
