QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Four friends who've been playing the game of Tag every May for the past thirty years try to tag a fifth friend who's managed to remain untouched over all of that time.
PLOT:
For the past thirty years five friends -- Hogan "Hoagie" Malloy (ED HELMS), Bob Callahan (JON HAMM), Randy "Chilli" Cilliano (JAKE JOHNSON), Kevin Sable (HANNIBAL BURESS), and Jerry Pierce (JEREMY RENNER) -- have been playing the same game of tag every May that they started while in the fifth grade. Whoever is last tagged before June 1st remains "it" until the following May, and this year Hoagie is feel increased pressure for any of them to finally tag Jerry who's managed to remain untouched through the history of their game.

Knowing he's getting married to Susan Rollins (LESLIE BIBB) in May, and believing he's then going to drop out of the game, Hoagie rounds up his friends and they set off -- along with Hoagie's equally enthusiastic wife, Anna (ISLA FISHER), and Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca Crosby (ANNABELLE WALLIS) -- to crash Jerry's wedding and finally tag him. But their friend and game adversary has anticipated their every move, ranging from making sure local bartender Lou Seibert (STEVE BERG) doesn't give up his location, to inviting Bob and Chilli's former childhood and then high school flame, Cheryl Deakins (RASHIDA JONES), to the rehearsal dinner to distract them.

With time running out, the four friends pull out all the stops as they attempt to tag their seemingly untouchable friend before time runs out on them.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens might be drawn in if they're fans of anyone in the cast, or even just by the goofy-sounding premise.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language throughout, crude sexual content, drug use and brief nudity.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
