Now, God knows Aames and Cates are young and nubile. But there is a price to pay for the sight of them running naked: you have to sit through one of the worst movies ever made. I actually saw this on the big screen, and I can report that about fifteen minutes into the movie people began to leave, talking loudly about what an incredibly dull movie it was; those of us who remained were treated to an increasingly mind-numbing boredom so ponderously heavy that we were shocked into immobility. No amount of teen age nudity could make this turkey watchable. Miss it! For the sake of your sanity, I beg you!
"Paradise" isn't a 100% ripoff of "The Blue Lagoon," it's more of an 80% ripoff. The differences are the monkeys, that the two main characters (Phoebe Cates and Willie Aames) are consistently chased by an enemy, and they're stranded in the desert instead of on an island. Like "The Blue Lagoon," both of them discover sex and fall in love with each other.
I recommend anybody who just wants to see "Paradise" to see Phoebe Cates nude to buy the film because it's well worth it. However, if you're looking for a great movie to watch, I wouldn't recommend getting "Paradise" because it's only a mediocre movie, if it's even mediocre. For the movie, I give Phoebe Cates 5 stars and the movie itself 2 or 3 stars.
P.S.--According to THE BARE FACTS a body double was used for the love scenes, but it is Phoebe everywhere else--including the underwater scenes.
