Movie Reviews

Fairbank's last film...and an underrated family film classic
James Simpson | USA | 12/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fairbanks last film is also one of the most entertaining he ever made.

The premise is a cute one:Fairbanks bets his rich friends that he can survive on a deserted island for an entire year on just his own creative ingenuity.

It's not believable,but that's not the point either.
This is escapist fantasy and it's a darn infectious one,too!

Fairbainks constructs a ridiculous tree house for himself with all the "modern" conveniences(circa.1932) including a radio(!) and help from his pet Monkey,Parrot, and Dog,the only other companion that joined him on the island.

Eventually he comes across a beautiful woman that ran away from her tribe that predictably falls for cool guy,Fairbanks.
However,her tribe and some other not so friendly natives from neighboring islands decide to invade.

What I love about this film is how it does not have to resort to violence to solve this problem,and it ends on a fun,happy note with Fairbanks returning to home with his pets and his girl.

And he sure gets that native chick a great job!

Absolutely harmless film that is truly feel good,especially in this pessimistic age,reccomended for the film buff who needs something to smile about.

Note:Unfortunately,my five star review JUST refers to the film and not the DVD,which is mediocre,with terrible quality.
I hope that someone decides to release a better print of this in the future.
Also...where are the chapter selections?"
