The lush beauty and splendor of a South Pacific paradise is vividly captured in this version of Henry DeVere Stacpoole's 1903 novel. Two small children and a ship's cook survive a shipwreck and find safety on an idyllic tropical island. Soon, however, the cook dies and the young boy and girl are left on their own. Days become years and Emmeline (Brooke Shields) and Richard (Christopher Atkins) make a home for themselves surrounded by exotic creatures and nature's beauty. They learn to cope with the bewildering variety of physical changes that come with adolescence. And as they begin to mature, their childhood affections lead to a sensitive and more profound love and the birth of a child. But will they ever see civilization again?

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [It] has a nonsensical glaze that contributes to the inadvertent merriment.
Rotten: The Blue Lagoon is the dumbest movie of the year.
Rotten: 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.
im used to seeing all these movies with forced love and untrue feelings. or shows like gossip girl, where they hook up with 2 people a day. but this movie shows what true love is. true, its rated R, but its worth the $10. BUY IT! the year of the movie DOESNT MATTER because it may have been made 20 or so years ago, but the meaning of it is really timeless.
Yay First Review!! ;]
I actually heard of this movie on MTV. it's really not that bad. And I thought well Brooke Sheilds is in it might as well give it a shot! Totally worth the moneyy. PEACE. :)
Beautiful Love Story
This is my all time favorite movie! It shows love in all its innocence and beauty. $9.99 is a steal for this wonderful classic love story. Buy this! You won't be sorry!!
