Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins play the youngsters who are shipwrecked on a deserted island in this remake of a 1949 British film directed by Frank Launder. Here, teenage self-discovery and love ensue as they grow up isolated from the world in a Swiss Family Robinson-style shack. It's beautifully shot and there's much nudity and suggested sex, but it's all very, very silly, as the love birds conform to traditional marriage-and-baby values - strange for a couple with no sociological context to draw on. For the under 20s only.
