The only thing this movie and Blue Lagoon have in common is atrocious dialogue. But whereas Blue Lagoon is atrocious dialogue all the way, in this movie the idiot-level talk occurs only in certain scenes. If you copy the scenes that are NOT idiotic onto a blank videotape, you'll have a five-star movie that is one hour and twenty-three minutes long with no story elements left out, no love scenes left out and no nudity left out. The stupid scenes are brief but numerous, so fast-forwarding over them is tedious.
The story of this movie is actually pretty good. It contains action scenes, love scenes, playing scenes, scenes of people being human. And all of it is quite credible, given the time and society. The nude scenes are also done quite naturally. There is no teasing, no three-second breast shots, and no shoving in the nudity for its own sake. Also, there is a fair amount of nudity, not the usual throwing in a single shot to get the R rating. And it is not drenched in hostility like the so-called "art" movies or other pretentious fare. The crisis and resolution are believable and satisfying. The music is far above average.
As to versions, if you have the videotape, there is little to be gained from buying the DVD. It's semi-widescreen, but that adds little. Both are mono, even though the DVD claims to be stereo. The sound and picture quality are quite decent on both media.
Bottom line: with the idiot-talk scenes cut, this is a rare movie, exciting, touching, and satisfying.
This movie is so awful that I could just as easily have given this movie 1 star instead of 5 stars. The acting, dialogue and plot are so embarrassing that you will be blushing and groaning while watching it, realizing that you are of the same species as the people who created this piece of trash.
If you just want to see Phoebe Cates naked and scantily clad, turn down the sound and put on some music (preferably 70's porno movie music), and have your remote control at the ready. The shower scene alone is worth the price of admission although it would be nice to have it on DVD with an AB repeat. Quite frankly, even if you also love bad movies, you'll want to have the remote at hand for subsequent viewing.
It is a "must-see" for lovers of bad movies, but I would recommend renting it rather than buying it if seeing Phoebe Cates naked at her most gorgeous doesn't appeal to you. But if you want the definitive "Phoebe Cates naked" movie, it's worth buying even if you don't like bad movies.
The DVD itself is badly done. The cover looks cheap. The transfer is bad. Some parts are purposely blurred. No extras. It surely doesn't warrant the price of $19.99 but more like $4.99!
The extra star in the rating is just because it's a Phoebe Cates debut. If you're not her fan, don't bother buying.
