Shag (1989)

I watched this with a friend last night for the first time. What a cute movie. All the actors were great. Phoebe Cates seemed to be channeling Jessica Lagne. Robert Rusler was in his prime. Any fans on DL?

Great soundtrack.

Probably my favorite movie of all time. Great soundtrack, tons of quotable lines, and Robert Rusler shirtless most of the film. Teens of a certain social class still ‘shagged’ when it came out in my area so I think my friends and I identified with it more than other American teens of the time.

A cute but totally forgettable movie. It feels like a blander version of Where the Boys Are.

Bridget Fonda was good in this.

I had no idea Scott Coffey was gay.

It’s on TCM late tonite if anyone cares. Great lineup: Hairspray, Muriel’s Wedding, Georgy Girl, Shag and Girlfriends.

If only Phoebe Cates channeled Jessica Lange in LACE...

I’m sorry.... but cinema purists know it as SHAG: THE MOVIE.

My friend called it SHIT: THE MOVIE.

Your friend is much in demand for punching up jokes?

I went to school with Robert Rusler.

Is Rachel Sweet in this?

Paige Hannah married a producer 30 years older than her.

Should we be surprised?

Did they have to change the name in the UK?

Sadly, no. We lived in Hollywood, but such glory was never hers.

We did used to dance around singing the words to “Winner Takes It All” as [italic]”When he takes it off...!”[/italic], though.

That was our peak.

Paige Hannah was funny as the uptight one.

Is Robert Rusler gay too?

by Anonymousreply 2005/05/2021

Robert had an affair with Mark Patton with whom he appeared in "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge" and they remain friends. However, I have never heard anything about any involvement with another male. He seems happily married.

His on-screen chemistry with Patton was sizzling.

by Anonymousreply 2105/07/2021

Oh yeah. Mark Patton is a fucking unicorn.

Cute movie.

Attractive cast, with shirtless Robert Rusler and sexy Bridget Fonda (who gets a big movie-star close-up intro to “Harlem Shuffle”) standouts, plus cute Jeff Yagher as the visiting movie star..

And the Shag dance that Annabeth Gish and Scott Coffey do looks so much fun!

by Anonymousreply 2305/07/2021

Robert and Mark hooked up? I had no idea. I wonder if Scott Coffey tried to seduce him.
