Storyline

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.

This movie was Great!
17 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I want you to know with the way the movie starts out by Gilligan walking along and finding that World War 2 Bomber after getting yelled at by the Skipper it gets things going. It amazes me how the professor is able to have everyone pedal on bicycles to start the engines on that old airplane. Also it is so funny how when Gilligan falls out of the plane and they land to get him. I think that is funny because when they are all feeling sad and that Navy captain shows up and they get so excited that now their island is on the maps. It is really funny how they have turned the island into a beach resort. I really like it when it shows the one guest sneaking into the lobby and finding that hidden pay phone inside that hollow tree. I also like what Gilligan does when he is hunting down that little boy who feels his parents overwork him. This movie should be put onto DVD so we can all see it again. Since the original TV series is all on DVD they should put all three movies that make the ending of the island show onto DVD!
