The fictional name of the island of St Nicholas in the film is not unusual for the Carribean as a number of towns and isles there have a "Saint" prefix in their names. These include St Kitts (aka Saint Christopher Island), St Martin, St Barthélemy, and St Catherine, Jamaica (where co-star Jimmy Cliff) was born. See more »
I guess I'm an '80's boy because I have so much to remember, high school graduation, college, Navy service etc. etc. Yet it is the movies I remember the most and this is one of them.
It is cute and fun and with some great actors playing, so what if it didn't win any Oscars? Sure it wasn't gut bursting laughs by the minute, rather smiling all through the movie.
No. It is all about the beautiful warm feeling you get, like coming directly from the Caribbean sun itself. Laid back, cool music and a good time.
Pour yourself a drink (Bacardi perhaps?) watch it on a rainy winter evening with some company and you'll have a great time especially if you can remember yourself when you watched it for the first time.
