A real Tear-Jerker
25 March 2002 | by yellow866See all my reviews

I taped the Jonathan Wamback story a little while ago, and I've watched it nearly a dozen times since. Tagged is based on the true story of a 9th grade boy from New Market, Ontario. On the last day of school, a gang of well-known school bullies beat Jonathan into a 90-day coma. The doctors didn't believe he would ever wake up, but his parents weren't going to give up on him. Though Jonathan did get out of his coma, there still are struggles he must face each day. Tyler Hynes plays Jon - WOW, strong acting. (The entire cast worked extremely well!) The real Jonathan also appears in some scenes during the movie and again at the end in a sort of wrap-up speech with Tyler. The movie was very well done, I really wish it weren't made for TV... It should definitely be made available to buy in stores. If you missed it, maybe it'll come on again so watch for it! Jonathan Wamback is now 18, back in school and continuing to recover. GO JON GO! :o)
