'The Blue Lagoon' has long been considered a cult classic. However, the film is much more than that. Shields and Atkins, two gorgeous lead actors, are partially nude throughout the film, pulling the attention away from the beautiful story. Look beyond the skin displayed on screen...'The Blue Lagoon' is a great coming-of-age film. It is a film that I personally have enjoyed viewing time and time again. See it for what it is, and you will not be dissapointed. You may even decide to add this one to your collection, it is definately WORTHY!
This film should be remembered for displaying the best performances to date for Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins. Shields is still in the limelight, for starring in a few cheap direct-to-video flicks and the surprise-hit show 'Suddenly Susan' from a few years back...and Christopher Atkins has appeared in a few films as well, most notably his role in the '96 film "It's My Party." However, Atkins career took a steep downfall and he lost much of his popularity from 'Lagoon' after he won the Razzie Award for Worst Actor for the movie 'A Night in Heaven' back in '83. Be sure to check out 'The Blue Lagoon.' I give it a good 8/10.
