Based on reviews, I was dying to get this video. It was extremely disappointing. If you like the personality of Ian Wright and have only a passing interest in Tahiti and/or Samoa, you might like this. If you want to see the sights and/or learn about these islands, there is little here. I like Wright just fine - he can be funny, and he's affable enough, though some may find him insufferable in a Jerry Lewis sort of way. It's the concept that is poor. There is some good if passing information on Robert Louis Stevenson and Gaugin, but the latter is more concerned with showing Mr. Wright vamping as a Tahitian woman than anything else. Har de har. Good bit on tatooing, Mr. Tahiti contest, climbing a mountain, and decent bits on food and stingray feeding. Here I don't mind Wright's campiness because the scenes are otherwise well done. What are missing are nice shots of the islands, general tourism information, history, and just about anything else you might be interested in. There are several lame interviews with vacationers - nice people, but they have nothing to say. An elderly couple backpacking for 7 months are quite interesting, but alas, they are not the hosts. With few exceptions, the local inhabitants (who surely have better stories to tell than Mr. Wright) are completely mum, though they are photographed throughout. Truly, there is little here for old people, young people, honeymooners, pilgrims, etc. It's just a quirky, aimless adventure for a self-absorbed, mildly talented host. To give an example, the show starts as he reaches Bora Bora for reasons unknown, and inspects his over-water bungalow. He practically drools over it, growls and oo-la-las over the romantic implications - but he is a single traveler. It makes no sense at all, and only serves to degrade the production from the get-go. There is exactly one nice shot of the Bora Bora mountains, as seen from the Pearl Resort. Otherwise the camera is eternally pointed outward from the island. Wright sits in a hut on a motu (islet) dreaming of some unspecified paradise, cavorting in the water and then pretending to have forgotten to pack the essentials of survival. With some exceptions noted above, that's what this 1 hour film is: a lame joke.
