The Blue Lagoon is closer to Robinson Crusoe Goes Club Med than to its original source. It's a fantasy island conceived at poolside in Beverly Hills and executed by tourists to the Fiji Islands. Shallow water, indeed.

There have come to be certain conventions of the genre, and it's an annoyance that The Blue Lagoon keeps violating them.

"The Blue Lagoon" is a plump sitting duck, waiting to be roasted by sarcastic spectators.

Lots and lots of nudity, bad acting in '80s survival tale.

Their romance is enhanced by Nestor Almendros' exquisite photography (and Basil Poledouris' score), as is the stunning beauty of the Fiji island where it was filmed.

At a little over 100 minutes, the film feels as if huge chunks of it were edited out for pace; however, the wrong chunks have been cut.

The only thing blue about the movie is the sea, and the way you'll feel after wasting your time on this dose of 'tasteful', TV commercial-style, nudity.

The Blue Lagoon is the dumbest movie of the year.

[It] has a nonsensical glaze that contributes to the inadvertent merriment.

It's pornography for people who like to go to book burnings; a sex fantasy as chaste as your 3rd grade piano teacher.

You can focus on the gorgeous locales or the underage skin. Or you could just watch a much better movie.
