“Tag” (2018)

This film takes advantage of its high concept comedic premise, even if it’s not quite as much as it probably should. There are several genuinely funny comedic set pieces, including a clever one that homages war films. The actors work well off of each other, but by far the one who steals the show is Isla Fischer, who proves that she hasn’t lost even a touch of her comedic prowess since Wedding Crashers over a decade ago. The film’s main issue is the ending, with an out-of-nowhere twist that contributes to a jarring tonal shift. This feels like an ending that was made last second, after the writers couldn’t come up with anything better. Still,Tag’s funny enough to warrant a solid recommendation.
