Injured while risking his life to save an angry German shepard, Chicago Firefighter Jack Moniker retires and moves to a small carribean island named St. Nicholas. There, he is befriended by the owner of a run-down resort, Ernest Reed. Greedy developers are schemeing to wrest Reed's coveted beach front property from him for non-payment of taxes. Jack comes to Ernest's rescue, and together they renovate and reopen the resort catering to affluent Americans. The film follows the zany exploits of the proprietors, guests and various colorful island denizans, as they break in the new "Club Paradise". Written by
The name of the tropical Carribean island was Saint Nicholas. A principality of the United Kingdom, the country in the movie is fictional and does not exist in real life. In the film, the isle was said to be only seven miles wide at its widest point. Two of the fictional locations on the island of St Nicholas were called "Puerto Maria" and "Prince Charlestown".

This is one of my favorite movies with Robin Williams. Normally, he is so out of control, it's difficult to watch him. This time, he steps back a little and lets the other funny people take a turn. Peter O'Toole stole the picture, as far as I'm concerned, with his droll delivery. Even Twiggy was a pleasant surprise. Loved the Jimmy Clift music, and the Adolph Cesear as the blustery military leader. The two Barrys (Moranis and Levy) had some of the best lines as they tried to score some marijuana. And I'll never pronounce White the same way after Andrea Martin gave it her own special twist. This is a great movie to watch in the dead of winter. It will warm you right up.
