Three guys and Joan Collins on a desert island.
1 November 2002 | by (bahamas) – See all my reviews

Very funny and inventive tale about three guys marooned on a desert island with snooty Joan Collins. Terrific characterization - the jerk, the dithering old man and the cheeky know-it-all sailor. Kenneth More at his cheerful best as the sailor, veteran Robertson Hare at his scatterbrained finest and George Cole at his most obnoxious. And then there's Joan Collins. Still learning how to act but who cares when she spends ninety percent of the movie in a bikini? The object of lust from all angles and no wonder. When one looks at the sorry state of so many of today's comedies it's a delight to look back on this one and get more than a few laughs from genuine characters and situations. A nice addition for the collection.
