FPB Report (SA)
GenreAction comedy
LanguageStrong impact, frequent use of crude language in conversation and not to demean. There are also fairly frequent sexual innuendos through verbal references to sexual activity present that would expose children to adult talk/experiences.
NudityLow impact, infrequent nudity is present in a non-sexual context. One isolated scene of a man's exposed buttocks.
SexNone
ViolenceMild to moderate impact, fairly frequent violence is present within the context of playing a game, with no blood-letting. The violence is stylised and no serious fighting intended to harm or injure.
PrejudiceNone
BlasphemyNone
Drug abuseNone (sic)
CommentsThe film is based on a true story and portrays a group of adult men who plays the game, TAG since their childhood. They plan to trap and tag their friend who is about to get married at his wedding. A series of chasing, ambushing, disguising and pranks follow until they manage to tag him when one of the friends is admitted to hospital and reveals that he has cancer. They admit that they continued with the game over the years because it has given them the excuse/opportunity to stay in contact and be involved in each other's lives into adulthood. However, they start the game from scratch in the hospital. Many other friend groups started to play the game after their story was told.

Themes are complex and mature, with a comedic tone and light-hearted. Themes include game play, pursuit, ambush, addiction, and obsession to win, childhood pranks carried into adulthood. The casual use of illegal substances and the extreme use of crude language are morally harmful to impressionable children under 16 who could emulate socially unacceptable behaviour.
