[2.5 stars] [IMDb Link] [Amazon Link]

I guess this is a subgenre now: comedies where there's a lot of frenetic action and the actors drop the f-bomb a lot. So we tried this one, and eh.

The premise is promising: the longest game of tag ever, slopping over into the adulthood of the players: Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, Lil Rel Howery, Jake Johnson. And Jeremy Renner, who's a legendary ninja at the game, long resisting any efforts to make him "It".

Tagging along is a Wall Street Journal reporter who's heard about the game, and wants to write about it for the paper. And also a wife. And also an ex-girlfriend. And there's not a lot of reason to care about what happens. I mean, is there? You tell me. One of the guys smokes a lot of pot. Hilarious!
