In the Victorian period, two children are shipwrecked on a tropical island in the South Pacific. With no adults to guide them, the two make a simple life together, unaware that sexual maturity will eventually intervene.
On a journey to San Francisco, Richard, his father and cousin Emmeline find themselves on a ship about to explode. Rushed to a lifeboat with Paddy Button, the two children escape while their father (and uncle) are on another lifeboat. In the chaos following, the lifeboats are separated. Paddy, Richard and Emmeline find themselves with no food and no water stuck in the middle of nowhere. After some time, the three come across an uncharted paradise, where Paddy quickly teaches the children fishing, hunting and building.

Now I know most people would think that I am too young to see this movie or even understand it. Well I am 14 and I have loved this movie since I was about 9 0r 10. Now I know that that is even younger then 14. But The Blue Lagoon is a movie that show a lot on TV. And me being a movie freek and loving romantic movies it appled to me. But now that I am older I have a greater understanding for it. The Blue Lagoon is one of my favorite movies and eve though at times it was a bit corny and silly it still had a point. It shows how a boy and a girl grow up to teenagers on a deserted island with no adults around telling them what is right from wrong and the secrets of life. The older I get the more I enjoy this movie and the more I can realate to it. It is a fantisay that I would love to actually live. As I said before the Blue Lagoon as a very good point. And if you look past the nudity and the corny lines (which do make sense) there is a beautiful story and magic that you can see.
