It's not gonna make any sense, so just fucking sue me. I'm sorry, that wasn't meant to be a lawyer joke.
It's not a joke if it's not insulting.

Italian DVD is about 2 minutes longer. The scene that starts during the opening titles goes on and then cuts to where the US version starts showing a "10 Years Later" sign. Another brief conversation scene is from a different take and has a different, longer dialogue. Running time of Italian DVD, which is PAL, is 1:37:02. In NTSC that translates to 1:41:10. US edition is 1:39.13. See more »
Light but still amazingly deep movie with great characters
I was expecting more hilarious and absurd comedy, I mean the summary made it sound like it could be that. But Laggies turned out to be deeper. It reminded me of Liberal Arts by Josh Radnor, since both movies deal with growing up, etcetera.
Megan was easy to relate to as a character. Even though her character seemed to revolve a lot around how she felt "out of place" and unsure, she didn't become a simple symbol of said feeling. She had other traits too. Even though there has been better written characters, I liked her a lot.
I love how the message isn't really about finding your own place in the world, it's more like it's alright if you don't have it all figure out. Life just happens.
I really liked Laggies, though it wasn't at all what I was expecting. It was fun, light and still meaningful. This movie is entertainment you don't have to start analysing, but you still can, because it really does have a purpose. I would warmly recommend this movie to anyone.
