    Even if the film doesn't leave much to ponder past the closing credits, it's enjoyable while it's unfolding, doing justice to the strengths of Shelton's ever-expanding filmography.

    Superbly written, handsomely made and full of terrific performances, Laggies is Shelton’s best film to date.

    If the narrative progression feels too tidy and circumscribed, Shelton’s talent for bringing out the best in her actors remains satisfyingly intact.

    The plot strong-arms the characters into increasingly contrived and overly familiar positions that leave you longing for the more relaxed vibe of Shelton's earlier films.

    Its patchy tone, plot, characters and sympathies make for a film that’s difficult to wholeheartedly endorse.
