My father told me it was wrong to look upon nakedness.
Well, Adam and Eve were naked.
They were not, they wore leaves! Big ones.
How do you know, were you there?
No, but I've seen lots of pictures in churches and they always wore leaves.

The first movie starring Phoebe Cates. She was a different kind of a star. This movie put her on the maps. She's definitely cute in this movie which is the attraction for the age group the movie was made for.
The movie is the '80s creation that included many teen oriented movies of that decade. It's pretty harmless, and out of the many teen actors of that era, Phoebe Cates was definitely one of the best looking.
That's about all there is to this movie. Producers must have thought that this is a bankable movie following the Blue Lagoon's format. The way they were dressed were almost a carbon copy of Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins in that movie.
I have to admit that we did get to see what we wanted to see, and that is Phoebe Cates in all her natural glory. Just for that it was worth the price of the ticket.
