Stuck on the same island as before, the castaways find an abandoned World War II bomber that the Professor is able to repair and fly. However, in the attempt to fly to Hawaii, Gilligan falls out and has to parachute down to the island. Against their better judgment, the gang decides to return the island to get him. In a stroke of luck, that saves their lives as an engine collapses upon landing instead of in midair. Even better, a U.S. Navy captain appears saying that their plane was detected on radar long enough for them to follow it to the island. A year later, the island is now a tropical resort spot fully linked to Civilization, and the castaways work as the staff as they work to entertain the various guests they receive.

The Castaways on Gilligan's Island (1979)

** (out of 4)

The second made-for-television movie has Gilligan and his buddies finally getting rescued but they then decide to turn their beautiful island into a resort. One of their first couples is a work-a-holic (Tom Bosley) and his wife (Marcia Wallace) who wants him to chill out and have some fun. Will the crew be able to change him?

RESCUE FROM GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, somehow, turned out to be one of the biggest and most watched made-for-television movies ever made so it was obvious we'd get something else. Look, I'm really not a fan of the television show and I haven't watched it in probably twenty years. I never really found it all that funny but I will admit that it contained some sort of weird charm that might infect people to where they become fans.

This film here is perfectly built like one of the shows because there are so many dumb moments but at the same time you can't help but be mildly amused by the stuff. The original Gilligan's Island cast members certainly fit back into their roles without any problem. Both Bosley and Wallace are fine as are the rest of the supporting players. The production values are obviously cheap and it looks like there wasn't much of a budget but if you're a fan of the series then it's likely you're going to be entertained with this.
