Red hot romance!,
This review is from: The Blue Lagoon (Special Edition) (DVD)
Here is a tale about two young teenagers who are stranded on an island somewhere and eventually fall in love. The stars,Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins were teenagers when this film was made. This film was another hit for director Randal Kleiser,who scored big with the 1978 Paramount musical GREASE. Subsequently,Kleiser directed HONEY,I BLEW UP THE KID which was a sequel to HONEY,I SHRUNK THE KIDS. The 1991 sequel to this film,RETURN TO THE BLUE LAGOON, was a box office disappointment. In the summer of 1980 when this film was theatrically released,other hit movies from then include URBAN COWBOY and THE BLUES BROTHERS. Shields,since this film,appeared in many print ads and made a lot of television appearances which includes a starring role on the sitcom SUDDENLY SUSAN.
