Storyline

"Dag" is an Australian term for filthy wool on the hindquarters of a sheep. It also is a slang term for an uncouth person. Therefore this film is a look at several uncouth individuals. The men are all beer drinkers and dopers who wear Hawaiian shirts, long socks, and sandals. The women are all in tank tops and hot pants and constantly after sex, but never enjoy it. One of the men gets a wild idea to get in the Guiness Book of Records by having one of his mates rob his video store every night. During one of these robberies, the robber "kidnaps" a customer and begins a romance. Meanwhile all of the other "dags" are sleeping with one another behind each other's backs.

10 out of 10 for effort; something less for realisation
28 January 1999 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Dags' was probably made for less money than the catering bill for larger studio productions, which may go some way to explaining why it has the look and feel of an Australian short film that over-stayed its run time.

'Dags' is so Aussie-centric that it's unlikely to appeal to an audience outside its shores. It pastes together a mish-mash of caricatures from daggy, suburban Australia but not the sort an overseas 'Neighbours' audience would recognise. There are laughs to be had, even if they come from familiar territory previously explored by Australian TV comedy shows such as 'Australia, You're Standing In It', 'The Comedy Company', 'The D Generation', 'Fast Forward' and 'Full Frontal'. The David Attenborough-style narration has been done before and done better.

Not bad for a laugh or two, but wait for the video.
