The Blue Lagoon woof! 1980 (R)

Useless remake of 1949 film of the same name. An adolescent boy and girl marooned on a desert isle discover love (read: sex) without the restraints of society. Not too explicit, but nonetheless intellectually offensive. Gorgeous photography of island paradise is wasted on this Shields vehicle. 105m/C VHS, DVD . Brooke Shields, Christopher Atkins, Leo McKern, William Daniels; D: Randal Kleiser; W: Douglas Day Stewart; C: Nestor Almendros; M: Basil Poledouris. Golden Raspberries '80: Worst Actress (Shields).
