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.

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.

Jovovich is a beauty recalling the very young Myrna Loy, Krause is boyishly handsome; both are capable and should survive this particular shipwreck.

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.

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

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

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

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

A sequel that I remember very little of, other than the fact that Milla Jovovich was in it.

Pretty much the same as the first one. A little better though.

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… More

I love the soundtrack. Basil Poledouris is amazing.
