Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Most nostalgia exercises carry an implicit aura of camp, but this beach-movie revival is as straightforward as it is gratifyingly sweet. The fresh-faced young cast -- especially frisky adventurer Bridget Fonda and repressed deb Phoebe Cates -- embody the hot-blooded youth of an earlier era with considerable panache. Meanwhile, director Zelda Barron keeps everyone marching at a brisk comedic pace. Script by committee isn't always a recipe for success, but the three-way collaboration on Shag yields a workable plot and plenty of laughs -- coupled with the faintest tinge of feminist hindsight and grown-up perspective. By the time Hairspray rolled around, gross-out satirist John Waters had become nothing but a slightly subversive family entertainer. Shag, Hairspray's contemporary both in release date and setting, seems almost as subversive in its unashamedly feel-good vision of the past.

    A great feel good movie

    This is a really great feel good movie, and it just goes to show things have not changed much since the sixties. I have spent lots of summers in myrtle beach, especially as a teenager in the 1990's,and this movie really brings back the good memories. I love it. It is one of my favorite of all times.

    If you've never seen it you don't know what your missing

    This is one of the BEST movies ever. It gives a true verision of what the early 60's was really like. Once you see it you will want to learn how to shag.
