Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

The pro­mo­tional ma­te­rial for this star-stud­ded com­edy high­lighted the ab­sur­dity of its true story be­gin­nings and you can see why as it has lit­tle else go­ing for it.

A story of a group of friends play­ing tag – or tig as we called it on my school play­ground – should be ripe for crazy ca­pers.

Alas, Jeff Tom­sic, helm­ing his de­but fea­ture-length flick, seems to think pro­ceed­ings can coast along on his cast’s charisma.

Jon Hamm, Jeremy Ren­ner, Isla Fisher, Ed Helms and Jake John­son are all fine but have pro­duced much bet­ter comedic work in the past.

There are laughs to be had but the gag rate is nowhere near as pro­lific as the cen­tral premise af­fords.
