The lagoon is the locale to which this new movie disastrously returns.

A textbook example of a disaster that amazingly manages not only to contain bad acting and an appalling script, but also some of the most unconvincing love scenes ever committed to film.

Graham paints a picture of love that is tediously sexist. One for pervs and frustrated holidaymakers only.

The movie is occasionally cutesy. That's the worst of it. You can't call it gross, but it is cutesy.

The sincere idiocy of this film really has to be seen to be appreciated -- not that I think there is any need for you to see, or appreciate, it.

At 15 years of age, I wanted to live inside this screen world of freedom and loinclothed abandon. Today, I wanted these kids to fall on some coral.

Return to the Blue Lagoon is a pointless spinoff of the 1980 hit, which was itself a remake of a 1949 British pic.

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.

Return to the Blue Lagoon is neither campy enough to be howlingly funny nor prurient enough to be provocative.

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.
