What to know

critics consensus

Despite its lush tropical scenery and attractive leads, Return to the Blue Lagoon is as ridiculous as its predecessor, and lacks the prurience and unintentional laughs that might make it a guilty pleasure. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

When widow Sarah Hargrave (Lisa Pelikan) washes ashore on a tropical island with her daughter and adopted son, she learns how to survive and raise the two children on her own. After her death, the kids -- Lilli (Milla Jovovich) and Richard (Brian Krause) -- are forced to continue their uncivilized lives without any parental guidance, and, as they enter young adulthood, they begin to fall in love. Their Eden-like existence is threatened, however, when outsiders arrive on the island.

    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qDaxkLUcTM"><i><b>TRAILER</b></i></a> <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0102782/"><i><b>IMDB</b></i></a> As i see it all around the web, there are controversial mixed opinions regarding this film. Usually "my way or the highway", no shades of gray, so i'll try to be objective (even though i DID enjoy re-watching this, remembered it from my childhood, it was magic back then). <a href='http://www.postimage.org/' target='_blank'><img src='http://s3.postimage.org/kesz550ws/return_to_the_blue_lagoon_movie_poster_1991_1010.jpg' border='0' alt="return to the blue lagoon movie poster 1991 1010" /></a> I don't really remember the first part or whether i liked it or not, but all i can say is that watching this, i awakened some of my childhood memories so it kinda felt great. Whatever happened with this film that made it receive such hugely underrated ratings...i have no idea, n'or do i care. This is one of the few nicely done romantic films i've grew up with and it's impossible to forget Mila's sexy young wet body from when she was 16 years old. I fell in love with her then, and i did again now. It's slow paced but i'm sick of speed every now and then, fuck those eye stealing sfx, and enjoy a chilling romance on a tropical island. Trust me it's quite interesting watching 2 kids, boy and girl growing up all alone, to discover EVERYTHING together, no help, no nothing, gets...steamy. Downside is, it feels boring now, i spoiled the magic it had, guess my brain only functions on cgi chemistry atm..damn, also i didn't expect much from this film i knew exactly what it is, but damn there's a lot of talking...ah well i still kinda liked it. Enjoy! Peace!

    Remember Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins from The Blue Lagoon well, sadly, they died at sea. But happily their baby boy was saved. trouble is, the boat that rescues him has the plague so, he is set adrift again, this time in the company of a widow and her daughter. They end up stranded on the same island, where the widow raises them, dies and they grow up beautifully as Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause. The two teenagers have to fend for themselves and are soon drooling for each other too...

    I really enjoyed the original with Brooke Shields and yes it is on my movies that are very hard to find list, however deemed this sequel just ok. Somethings they should just leave as they are.

    This was really quite atrocious. It seemed to start off okay for a bad follow on to a movie that was probably ill advised to start with. But the minute the kids grew up and became Milla Jovovich and Brian Krause, it was all over. (Admittedly Brian Krause is not that bad, and may even be a slight improvement on the original star, but that's not saying a whole lot). The story totally lost the suspense the original had about who was on the other side of the island, the story is jumbled and unconvincing and don't even get me started on the "bad guys" who may or may not have been intended to be Australian. (As the film was shot here and i could clearly hear the accents, though they were trying not to sound it... I think) Big mess of a film. Milla can't act at all. If you really have to, watch the original instead.
