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 redcard@ix.netcom.com

Underrated movie
22 September 2001 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Some hokey gags, but lot's of hilarious banter from Robin Williams and Peter O'Toole, plus epic songs from Jimmy Cliff and others. Lot's of great performances in smaller roles by Brian Doyle-Murray, Rick Moranis, Twiggy and Jimmy Cliff.
