Trivia

The two tropical island comedies, Water (1985) and Club Paradise (1986), shared several commonalities. Both featured settings that were British Principalities in the Carribean with at least one pompous English government official. Both had reggae connections, Bob Marley in Water (1985), and Jimmy Cliff in Club Paradise (1986). Water (1985) was an English movie, and co-starred an American blonde, Brenda Vaccaro, whereas Club Paradise (1986) was an American movie, which co-starred an English blonde, Twiggy. Peter O'Toole is seen in Club Paradise (1986) in a 'Cocked Hat' just as 'Michael Caine' is in Water (1985). Both films were released in the U.S. within three months of each other. See more »

Here here, I too thought it was one of the funniest films I have ever seen.
14 July 2007 | by (Vanuatu) – See all my reviews

Although it has been a while since I have seen "Water" I still remember it to be one of the funniest films I have ever seen. I have fond memories of this picture. And still remember some of the scenes. Like the scene when the French Army dudes first land on the beach and break out their "rations". I also remember the scene where the new guy is talking about the guys and the resistance guys appear (from the bushes) behind him while he is being filmed. The actors are all "The Best". It's quite over the top but I loved it. All this occurred over some squabble over an Island (somewhere in the Caribbean). The interaction between Mr Caine's character and Deloris (his wife) is priceless.
