"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.

Dag movie laughfest, in no way a daggy film, well may'be a bit

I couldn't believe how funny this movie was. It hit video, quicker than you could say Jack Robinson. Although we didn't have the best actors in the world, their trashy performances work better for their characters and air of the film, where if you had known and trained actors in this, it wouldn't have the safe effect of comedy. This is an infectious comedy about a group of dags. Every school has em'. If you really aren't familiar with the term, dags, we have a professor of human behavior to explain it here. There's such a consistency of laughs, that takes some great pokes at the CES, one of the dags, Takeaway, has been bludging off benefits for years on the account of his fake disability, where he can't control his constant use of expletives. Loving takeaway of course, this time around he gets a job, and almost chokes on a chicken bone. The local dag, Kevin, operating a video shop, who's obviously watched two many movies, has a set up operation where he has his mate (thick as bricks, who thinks artistic is someone who can fix cars) rob the place, every night, so he and his mate can profit, and pick up on the compensation. This time, they have a girl (another dag) Cheryl, taken hostage, the main plot of the movie here. Her daggy boyfriend, Daryl, (who you're just gonna love) would rather watch a video then get married, makes his wait outside the video shop, an overnight stay. So bonged out, he doesn't even notice his girl being abducted, or the wheels being removed from his car. Imagine if everyone was like Daryl. Again, in this there are Tarantino references, as there are also a manifold of movie title references, used by our sharp intellectual dag, Kevin, that play so funny in the dialogue. Cheryl too, thinks Mr Pinks a pussy, which is incredibly true. Cheryl of course falls in love with Kevin, then his "no brains", friend. Also we can't forget Prozac, a layabout, drug supplier and some other accurately written dags you'll get to know in this "must see" comedy, that will have you laughing loud. One scene in which there's a blunder, in a pre video shop hold up, where the hold up becomes an impasse, we have a chain of F words, spouted by our okay thespians, reminiscent of Steve Martin in that Planes, Trains and Automobiles scene, with that female airport teller. Even watching the end credits is funny, as is the whole movie, which I can't mention every moment or line in it's smartly written an funny filled script, as I would be from here to next Tuesday, doing so. Cheap, trashy, and uproariously funny this film is, which of course, would get shoved under the carpet, as compared to other Oz movies of 98'. Obviously they don't know style, when they see it.
