Quotes

Glenn Wallup: I don't remember you being elected king of this island.
Steve Bannerman: There's no election necessary, Mr Walkup. As senior officer of that aircraft I'm responsible for the safety and well-being of every person on this island. In plain English - I am in charge here. That's not my idea, that's maritime law. Now maybe you don't like it, maybe I don't - that's the way it's going to have to be. Now is that absolutely clear?

Gilligan's Island It Ain't
22 November 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This film was a pretty interesting concept and probably was intended to become a regular series. Interestingly enough, it came out the same year as Rod Serling's similarly themed series "The New People". The only thing that differentiates this from the other show is the fact that the survivors are all adults and not college students. Also, this film dealt with themes like race relations and rape. Too bad this film is not shown on television and too bad it never made it to series.
