"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. Written by

Dags is funny. What do the losers and dropouts of Australian society really think about? Definitely not as much as the characters in this low budget ride into the 'Ocker' idiom. Murray Fahey has put together a little film that starts out as a doco on dags and ends up revealing more about relationships than what people missed in Kubricks Eyes wide shut. It is a sad fact that the only way to make a feature film in Australia is to receive funding from a government body. Why are independent film makers regulated to make films that only their parents are going to see in the end. This hilarious film proves that a strong desire and a valid credit card can help one create their art.
