First, the obvious: Jeremy Renner, award-winning man of maybe two faces, plays both Hawkeye and Tag's untouchable Jerry Pierce. Both characters are gruff, somewhat aloof, supernaturally athletic, and -- as evidenced via arrows and donuts, respectively -- stellar marksmen.

The crux of Tag is this: In all the 35 years this friend group been playing their game of tag, Renner's Jerry has never been tagged, and his friends have decided that by gum, this is the year they get him. It's ... not a complicated movie. But Jerry and his pals take the game far too seriously. Helms' character, Hogan "Hoagie" Malloy, talks his way into a job as a janitor solely to surprise Jon Hamm's Bob in a meeting, while Jake Johnson's "Chili" falls several stories onto a parked car to get away from Helms.
