Editorial Reviews

After being separated as children, Raymond (Rag) and Tagbo (Tag) are reunited a decade later, in this gay love adventure. Rag is unemployed, with an estranged daughter, and has a criminal past. Tag is a graduate, hoping to get a job at a top law firm.

Despite their differences, Rag and Tag find it difficult to suppress their deep feelings for each other, and the physical side of their love is awakened on a trip to Nigeria where they are involved in some shady business. On their return, their relationship faces considerable opposition from family and friends, but they discover their love is strong enough to fight for.

finally a film about black gay men I can really relate to...with believable characters living beyond the stereotypic glam shop, party and play and looking fabulous "lifestyle"...helps that this British film features brothers from the Caribbean and West Africa navigating the challenges of carving out a place for their love across the African diaspora both in England and Nigeria...sweet scenes mixed with the typical comedic style West AFrican film pacing...love, love, love it!!!

This is one of the best romantic movies ever made. Regardless of your sexual orientation, if you have an open mind, then you can appreciate this movie It is a movie about true love that transcends sexual orientation and gender. This movie shows that love is love and how it can survive beyond distance, cultural, and socioeconomic differences. This is accomplished by the storyline of the main characters as well as with the secondary characters. This movie is a must see for anyone with a romantic spirit and a belief that love can truly conquer all. This DVD is a must own.

I liked this movie very much. I had to watch it twice because it was so good and felt so real. It's not a blockbuster and I think that made it seem more realistic, more genuine. There aren't too many films out there about us Caribbean, African, African American, Afro-latino and other black men, whether in the First, Second or Third World, that try to show the beauty of our love and our negotiation with our relatively homophobic cultures. This one managed to do that pretty well. It surpassed many of my expectations and hopefully it will do the same for you. I saw so much of my friends and myself in this film and it was good to know that someone out there understands. These guys are just everyday guys trying to make a living, make something of themselves and find that special someone. Their love is strong but they don't let it alone define them. That's a sticking point for me on many other films that I've seen. In those films, being with and being attracted to other men becomes a cultural identity, cause for a crusade - it becomes life. That doesn't happen here. It's just not "Another Gay Movie", pun clearly intended.
For anyone doing programming with disaffected or abused gay youth, particularly in the populations previously mentioned, you should get this DVD and have them watch. You'll be amazed at what it can do.

This not just my favorite film in a long time, but this movie tastefully captures a love story between two life-long friends cut from different cloths. The most amazing part of this film is that the story is not a typical Black gay film plot (1. a bunch of flaming queens trying to be more fabulous than the next with no plot 2. a bunch of flaming queens who meet Mr. Right as a hot body uber-masculine stud - that never happens in real life 3. some guy on the DL trying to figure whether he should come out the closet)

This film created a deep longing within me to experience something to akin to the emotions of the main players; a realistic view of "everyday" brothers who are flawed but understand the importance of following the yearnings of the heart.
The film potrayed the innocence of childhood that became the fiery passion in adulthood. Finally a film that represents us as black men who can communicate, love, and understand each other. I LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED It.

“Rag Tag” is a great movie and I highly recommend it to everyone, hetero- or homosexual.

Let me get the negative aspects of the movie out of the way. At times there are problems with the sound and the movie appears to have editing issues. However, one has to keep in mind that the movie was filmed on a low budget.

I can’t believe I did not see this movie before. I saw it on Netflix on 02/27/2015. I enjoyed it so much, I watched it 3 times!! I felt as if I knew Rag and Tag and was wishing them luck!

At first, I thought the movie was about a lost friendship being rekindled. I did not expect the movie to be such a beautiful love story. After 10 years apart, the men reunite. They rekindle the friendship they had as boys. Rag may have had a rocky upbringing but he appears to want to do better. Tag has furthered his education and studied law.

One can feel the love they have for each other. They want this love to be forever. And the movie turns into a great and beautiful love story. Both characters are not the ordinary gays projected by Hollywood. No broken wrists, sashaying, or drama and definitely not effeminate. They are just two manly friends madly in love with each other. The movie brought me to tears.

I grew to like Rag and Tag and felt as if I knew them personally. I wanted to see them reach their goals, become partners, and make their dreams come true together.

My favorite scene? When Tag has it out with his father in the bedroom as he is packing to leave. Each had biblical verses to present the point they wanted to make.

My favorite lines? When Olivia is talking to Mr. Olu and he suggests she gets pregnant. Her response to Mr. Olu was, "I want Tag to be happy.
