Cool island movie to relax anyone!
19 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie deserves a 10 out of 10. It's totally funny, very sexy, and entirely enjoyable. Stressed out Gordon and sexy Sydney (played by Lisa Hartman) are on vacation and rent a sale boat. After unwinding under Sydney's sudden urges, the two wake up to find they are lost. They soon crash on an uninhabited tropical island only to find out that Bill, a former New York stockbroker, lives on the island. Bill takes Sydney out on some nature walks around the island and they hit it off real well…actually too well. I laughed so much watching Gordon in all his frustration. After spending the day chopping down a ‘shrub' in his determination to make a boat and get back to civilization, he completely looses it when Bill tells him it won't float. While his girlfriend is off with Bill, Gordon meets Tarita (played by Charlotte Lewis). For a TV movie I was surprised to see almost full exposure of her breasts. Coming up out of the water to meet Gordon for the first time, there is only a very thin strand of wet hair blocking her nipples. The rest of her wonderfully huge natural mounds are just gushing out around and clearly visible. So she gives Gordon's aching muscles a massage straddling his back – oh damn those beautiful globes are again just barely concealing her nipples! By the time the four of them meet up in the later afternoon, they've all switched partners. Bill is too drained and not in the mood for sex with his lovely islander girlfriend Tarita. To make a long story short, Bill loosens up and enjoys island life while Bill reconsiders a more financially profitable career to support his new girlfriend. This movie really got me hooked on Charlotte Lewis. She is a gorgeous babe and quite a hunk of ass! Enjoy this movie – I sure did!!!
