Trivia

Gilligan was to have gone around the lagoon after catching the shark, courtesy of three pylons that had been placed on the bottom. A storm that struck during filming caused the loss of three of the pylons, and hence the stunt was carried out as filmed. See more »

Goofs

The boat is called the SS Minnow, but "SS" stands for "steam ship". A small boat like the Minnow would be powered by diesel or gas engine. See more »

Nice historical trip, some good moments
3 March 2004 | by (Syracuse, NY) – See all my reviews

I can see why they recast the three supporting roles. This was nice for any casual fan of the series, although about 1/3 of the footage was recycled for the Christmas episode with the flashbacks. Skipper was a little rough around the edges, and, as usual, Jim Backus and Natalie Schafer stole their scenes. The shipwreck location was a tad claustrophobic compared to the open beach shipwreck footage from the black and white Gilligan episodes.

A worthwhile rental if only to grab a few new scenes for this great series.
