This sequel to the 1980 film, Blue Lagoon, again finds a young couple falling in physical love when stranded on an island paradise. They live their idyllic days together in relatively painless bliss, until a passing ship offers them an exit back to civilization. They are then forced to decide whether or not they really want to leave their atoll.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"Jovovich is a beauty recalling the very young Myrna Loy, Krause is boyishly handsome; both are capable and should survive this particular shipwreck."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Joanna Berry, Radio Times
"The movie is occasionally cutesy. That's the worst of it. You can't call it gross, but it is cutesy."
‑ Lou Cedrone, Baltimore Sun
"A movie whose best features are its lush tropical vistas has evident limitations."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"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."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"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."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"The lagoon is the locale to which this new movie disastrously returns."
‑ Bill von Maurer, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"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."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Not even teen lust can justify watching this film."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Return to the Blue Lagoon is neither campy enough to be howlingly funny nor prurient enough to be provocative."
‑ Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Return to the Blue Lagoon is a pointless spinoff of the 1980 hit, which was itself a remake of a 1949 British pic."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Graham paints a picture of love that is tediously sexist. One for pervs and frustrated holidaymakers only."
‑ Miranda Sawyer, Empire Magazine
"Even the soft porn is a total yawn."
‑ , Total Film
"Just say no."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
