Storyline

When a decaying Russian satellite crashes on the island, the Professor uses a key component for a barometer. With that device, he learns that a massive wave is going to swamp the island. In desperation, the castaways lash their huts together into one structure in order to have any chance to ride the disaster out. The wave strikes the island and the hut is swept out to sea. Once there, Gilligan accidents starts a fire trying to cook a meal and nearly burns the floating hut down. Occupied with stopping the fire, the gang fails to notice that the smoke caught the attention of a naval helicopter who summoned a ship to rescue the castaways. In triumph, they return to Hawaii, only to learn that things have changed over the years and they will have trouble fitting in. To further complicate matters, two Russian spies are after that the key component that Gilligan now wears as necklace. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Opinion of A Teen Fan
7 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To all the Gilligan's Island Fans out there this is a must see if the 3 seasons of the original t.v. series wasn't enough. This movie however is also a let down after such an irreplaceable classic of such proportions.

One of the main things that caught my attention was the fact that Tina Louise (Ginger) wasn't included in the movie (this was a complete letdown). Although Judith Baldwin was an o.k. look alike (only from certain angles) she tried to hard to be Tina Louise, which really took away from the character. I however will say this it is not easy to replace such a person so good job at doing your best Judith (props to Judith)

Another important aspect as mentioned in another comment is the laugh tracks. These tracks are what help mad Gilligans Island an epic classic which helped in showing the viewers the true comic genius of the classic Gilligans Island.

Another aspect was the way the movies plot was a total letdown. As the castaways try to adjust to the society, their issues are poorly and boringly expressed in what in my opinion are to short and not enough issues to truly show their contempt with society. I however feel the best portrayed was that of the professor (wont tell you how).

I myself find this a good continuation for my fascination with Gilligan's Island after buying the first to seasons and waiting for the third. I see this as a good continuation for my curiosity. Gilligan's Island t.v. series remains untouched (as far as same comic genius is concerned competition wise). I however find this another refreshing clean version of t.v. and movies which gives me hope as a teen in this world that there might be a chance once again for good clean t.v. such of that of Gilligans Island(may it always be remembered).
