On Father's Day, Sharon and I went to an early showing of Tag at the Palladio Luxe theater in Folsom.
The film is based on a real-life group of friends from Spokane, Washington, who played a month-long game of tag every February over a 28-year period. The group was profiled in The Wall Street Journal in January 2013.
The movie stars Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Hannibal Buress, Jon Hamm, and Jeremy Renner. Renner fractured his right elbow and left wrist after falling 20 feet while performing a stunt in the movie. He filmed much of the movie in casts. The production team used CGI to remove his casts in post-production.
I enjoyed watching Helms, Hamm and Renner. Additionally, I enjoyed the fact that it is based on a true story; I saw a profile of the group on the NBC Nightly news. Nevertheless, with so many good movies and books in the world, I don't recommend going out of your way to find it.
