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>

Trivia

The scene in which the rescued castaways are towed into harbor to a hero's welcome was filmed in Los Angeles' Marina Del Ray. According to Sherwood Schwartz, the extras hired to play the crowd were soon joined by countless onlookers, all of them ecstatic to see the familiar characters finally rescued. The crowd's enthusiasm was so overwhelming that the cast members were moved to tears. See more »

When the castaways head out on their reunion cruise, the S.S. Minnow II is shown from a distance, with the Skipper shown driving the boat with Gilligan on his left. When the camera shot changes to a close-up, Gilligan is on his right. See more »

Oh Ya!
14 October 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

THIS FLICK WAS GREAT IF YOU LOVED THE SHOW AND THE CHARACTERS! 23yrs ago to see them all minus Tina (I don't know how lucky I was) Louise, was just fantastic. Ya, it was a little camp but big deal, so was the show. From seeing the rescue, to seeing what they were doing after being rescued, and to seeing them get shipwrecked again, brought a tear to my heart! A 10 all the way!!!!! What a tight group of friends that I grew up watching! Good clean fun! FLAMIO
