Return to the Blue Lagoon (1991)
Critic 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.

Critic Reviews for Return to the Blue Lagoon
The travelogue-style photography is soothing, the bodies are pretty and the music isn't offensive, but feature-length movies can't survive on the ingredients for a standard airline commercial.
Things are pretty much the same for the semi-nude kids in this movie as they were for the semi-nude kids in the first Blue Lagoon.
Return to the Blue Lagoon is neither campy enough to be howlingly funny nor prurient enough to be provocative.
Jovovich is a beauty recalling the very young Myrna Loy, Krause is boyishly handsome; both are capable and should survive this particular shipwreck.
When an old scallawag spies on Lilli bathing naked in a waterfall, we civilized viewers are primed to condemn him. But we're all scallawags here.
Audience Reviews for Return to the Blue Lagoon
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...
A sequel that I remember very little of, other than the fact that Milla Jovovich was in it.
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.
