Vidmark Entertainment, the distributor of the movie on VHS in the US, organized a special sweepstakes to promote it. The short ad where the stars of the movie explain to viewers how they can enter the competition was put on the VHS tapes along with the movie. The so-called "Island Madness Sweepstakes" offered a grand prize of 12 vacation trips for 2 as well as 150 other free gifts including rollerblades and beach fun packs. The ad promised that those who win the grand prize will be flown for free to Hibiscus Beach Resort at Saint Croix, an island in the Caribbean Sea that belongs to the United States Virgin Islands, where they'd get to stay for 6 days and 5 nights. In order to enter the competition, the viewers were told to write down their names, phone numbers and addresses and send the information by snail mail to Vidmark Entertainment. On the other hand, the instructions on how to get the free rollerblades and beach fun packs were shown only at the very end of the movie to motivate the people to watch it all the way though.

I rented this film with a few good buddies and we fully expected to enjoy watching a lousy movie filled with unintentional comedy. Instead, what we labored our way through was 90 minutes of unwatchable garbage. The movie presents us with Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, and proceeds to tell us that they are cool guys who we should enjoy. Why?! It never shows us anything cool or enjoyable about them - it just asks us to assume that. Much like when a body rejects a donated organ, we reject the very notion that they are interesting or likable individuals. Was Feldman's outfit EVER cool-looking? Even in some parallel dimension? (Also, a note to any prospective screenwriters out there, costuming jokes are NEVER funny! "Look, the sleeves of his suit are ripped off because he's on the beach!! HILARIOUS!") Corey Haim spends his time dressed like a semi-retarded homeless person and spouting off about virtual reality. Huh? Where did that character paradigm come from? If you can believe it, the movie actually becomes less watchable when the two Coreys aren't on the screen. We're presented with a villain with an annoyingly altered voice, a mermaid with an annoyingly altered voice, and an retired couple intent on wasting our time with their weary jokes. A last note, we should have realized that the movie was going to be a failure while watching the opening credits - the names are piercingly flashed at us in neon colors. It was enough to almost send me into a seizure.
People, trust me. If you're looking for a campy movie high on the unintentional comedy scale, look elsewhere. "Last Resort" only serves to p*** you off.
