One great movie...

Shag: The Movie
Tonight, I watched one of my all time favorite movies...Shag! I absolutely love this movie. I've probably seen it at least 50 times. It's such a feel good movie, it always makes me laugh and smile. If you've never seen it, go check it out! The soundtrack is pretty good as well!
Shag, takes place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina the summer of 1963. Four girlfriends, head down there for a fun filled weekend before "Carson" is to marry "Harlon", of course they get there and nothing goes the way it was planned. I really do love this movie. I love the fact that it takes place at Myrtle Beach and I love the fact that it's set in the 60's. If I could go back and pick where I wanted to be born, I would definitely have picked to be a teen/early 20's in the 1960's. I love the music and I just think the world/people were so much different. Love it...
Another reason why I love it so much is because of the character "Pudge". I see alot of myself in her. She feels that she isn't the prettiest of the bunch, but she makes up for it in personality. She's so funny and always cares for the others of the group. Her main wish for the weekend is to have fun and hopefully get some shag dancing in. By chance she meets Chip, a really intriguing guy who's headed off to Annapolis. It's so cute...(you'll have to watch it to find out what happens). I always root for her at the shag contest. By far...the best scene in the movie is the beach scene. It's so cute....boys like that are hard to find. Ok...that's my push for everyone to watch this movie. I LOVE IT!
Later gators
