Storyline

While the general theme of this film resembles "The Blue Lagoon" (the film for which this is a sequel), the basic plot is quite different. We open the film with a ship finding the craft with our original characters in it, Richard and Emmeline dead and Paddy alive. Established in the first film, the only word Paddy ever says is "Richard", so the crew assumes Richard is the infant's name. Taken in by Sarah, a widow with an infant baby girl Lilli, Richard (Paddy) is cared for in a return to civilization. Struck by cholera, the crew of the ship start to die and the captain sets Sarah, Richard, Lilli and a healthy crew member on a lifeboat in an attempt to preserve their lives. With water and food running short, the crew member escorting Sarah and the children becomes dangerous, so Sarah takes the only course of action she feels suitable to preserve the children: she strikes him and throws him overboard. Taking control of the small craft, she eventually guides them back to the island of ... Written by Bree Pearson

Trivia

Filming was further complicated by extensive sequences at sea in high surf with Sarah and the two infants. Director William A. Graham, an avid sailor and father of an infant daughter, faced the challenge with the consummate skills of a veteran filmmaker with nearly eighty projects to his credit. Graham said: "While conventional wisdom has proven that working with children, animals and boats can be trying, the rewards are also beyond what one can imagine. When you're working on a film like this with so many unpredictable elements, you never really expect things to go according to plan. You simply get what you can, when you can. You can get a performance from infants, for example, but it requires an enormous amount of patience. What they ultimately give you is so fresh and so wonderful that it is worth all the effort.".

When the Tradewind arrives at the island, Captain Hillard says, "Keep them in your sights. They may not be civilized.", to which Richard replies, "Civilized. C-I-V-I-L-I-Z-I-D." See more »

Quotes

[first lines]

Drifting for days, they believed that their lives and the life of their baby were at an end. Then a passing vessel drew near...

Alternate Versions

Both the US pan & scan DVD and the European wide screen DVD are reframed to cut out Lilli's breast in the scene where she's looking at herself in the mirror. The older VHS releases showed her nipple at the very bottom of the screen. See more »

What is new?
28 February 2002 | by o_internautaSee all my reviews

It is a good movie, of course. But comparing to the 1980 one, the Brooke Shields Blue Lagoon, this movie is nothing. Nothing new, and nothing sounds natural as the first one. For me is is just a bad copy made for money.
