Los Angeles Times
Rating: 2/4 -- Director Zelda Barron, in true music video style, tends to cut too quickly from scenes instead of letting them play out, each moment seeming more like a calculated set piece than a natural evolution of the story. Full Review
Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Rating: 3/4 -- The actors in Shag are some of the best of the younger generation in Hollywood, and they treat their material with the humor and delicacy it deserves. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The performers are uniformly attractive and energetic, and deliver performances that range from likable to delicious. Full Review
Four best friends from the American South decide on a final round of wild parties, romantic interludes and true love experiences before going their separate ways. They gather up their recently engaged girlfriend and head to Myrtle Beach to have their last hurrah, where situations of raised expectations and disappointment mark their coming of age in the summer of 1963.
The year is 1963, and let's do the shag. Four wild and crazy ladies gallop off to the beach with booze and boys for one of the lassies is to marry soon, real soon and seeds must be sown before the knot is tied. At first, it may seem a mission impossible, but love overtakes the bride to be, and, in the end, all the girlies seeds have blossomed into red roses.
