In desperation, the castaways lash their huts together into one structure in order to have any chance to ride the disaster out. The wave strikes the island and the hut is swept out to sea. Once there, Gilligan accidents starts a fire trying to cook a meal and nearly burns the floating hut down. Occupied with stopping the fire, the gang fails to notice that the smoke caught the attention of a naval helicopter who summoned a ship to rescue the castaways. In triumph, they return to Hawaii, only to learn that things have changed over the years and they will have trouble fitting in. To further complicate matters, two Russian spies are after that the key component that Gilligan now wears as necklace. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <email@example.com>

Watch Rescue From Gilligan's Island - Alternative Versions.
As a youngster and lifelong fan of Gilligan's Island, I still recall my
excitement when I first learned that Rescue From Gilligan's Island was going
to be shown on television. I also remember my profound disappointment when I
finally saw the show: it wasn't particularly funny.
Now, some 25 years later, I found myself purchasing this movie on DVD
anyway, for two reasons: To enjoy sweet memories of youth when TV humor was
simply good fun and didn't even pretend to be anything more, and because it
only cost $5.99.
Well, what can I say? I was disappointed again because, again, it wasn't
particularly funny. Yet I am still very glad I now own this movie on DVD.
How can that be?
For all the abuse Gilligan's Island has taken over the years from "serious"
humorists, the fact remains that the show appeals to everyone's desire for
real friendship and camaraderie, without all the drama of real life. The
original show was just plain fun to watch. And frankly, so is Rescue From
Gilligan's Island, despite its many, many flaws.
I know it is anathema to say so, but this movie would have scored much
higher if only it had included a laugh track, as did the original TV series.
The laugh track itself creates the illusion of camaraderie with an audience,
and that was always part of the appeal of Gilligan's Island. So I found
myself pretending to hear the original laugh track every time the cast told
a joke (i.e., constantly), and lo--the film was much more
On the bright side, losing the laugh track made me realize just how good
these actors really were, and how great an ensemble they comprised. After
all, the original cast never heard the roaring laughter the audience heard
as the actors playing the castaways fired one asinine line after another
between ludicrous slapstick action sequences. Without a laugh track, for
example, the actors portraying Russian spies in this movie behaved beyond
reproach; they were simply painful to watch. But then again, so was Wrongway
Felman, Harold Hecuba, and other visitors to the island, without a laugh
track. It is precisely because this ensemble was so good that they managed
to score with such silly humor every time in the finished product. That
takes talent (and guts, I suspect). For this reason more than anything else,
I truly missed Tina Louise as Ginger: no one could adequately replace a
member of such a tight ensemble. Kudos to Judith Baldwin for trying,
however. Thurston and Lovely Howell are hilarious characters even without
the laugh track.
Overall, as another reviewer observed, the value of this film is that it
provides a trip down the most pleasant stretch of memory lane. It would be
wrong, however, not to mention the unforgivable production of this DVD. The
sound is bad, a few jump cuts are embarrassing to watch, and the video has
frequent static bars like you would see on an old, worn videotape. Shame on
the production company. Shame on you!
Bottom line: If you don't appreciate the Gilligan's Island TV series you
will hate this movie with a capital "H", with good reason. But for those of
you who get misty just thinking about Gilligan, the Skipper and company,
Rescue From Gilligan's Island will help you feel like a kid again for 90
minutes, with good reason. A cast featuring Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Bill
Murray and other notable comics simply couldn't even come close to pulling
off the feat this underrated ensemble pulled off time and time and time
again for years, for no better reason than to make all of us feel good for a
half hour each week.
