Default The Gilligans Island Movie

Is there ever going to be one? I mean seriously. There has been a Brady bunch movie, and a Beverly Hillbillies movie, and movies about many other TV shows, so where is the movie about the most famous sitcom of them all? I wonder if there is ever going to be one.

Do you mean a documentary style movie? If so they made one around 2001 with Dawn Wells, Russell Johnson, and Bob Denver hosting with several reenactment scenes by new actors.

Or do you mean a straightforward movie adaption of the series, from shipwreck to rescue? If that's the case I'm not so sure it'd be a good idea because they'd have to get new Hollywood actors and writers. Whenever Hollywood gets involved with classics you can usually bet they won't do it right and won't be faithful to the charm and class of the original series. That is to say it probably wouldn't appeal to fans of the original show besides the curiosity factor.

I heard rumors many, many years ago, around the time of the Brady Bunch and Beverly Hillbillies movies, but obviously nothing came to fruition.
I agree that no attempt should be made now. Too many years have passed, and current writers are too used to doing snark to likely understand or capture the original appeal. Let's hope they leave well enough alone.

Or look at the next best thing, the (1992?) show "Woops!" which took the same feel - the silliness and farce, and revamped it from being deserted castaways to sole survivors of nuclear Armageddon. It's a fun show, but even by 1992 audiences did not want the same style of show anymore.

FOX, which made WOOPS, also made a show a few years ago that was very similar to "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In". They nailed the feel and comedy while being its own self, but mass audiences just didn't tune in.

Now I understand why reboots are attempted, perhaps. Taking the same style/feel as influence for something new and modern that fits today's society doesn't always garner the same overnight success. Which is almost ironic, so many reboots ditch the original feel and try to do something different and end up looking bad while making the original come off worse in the process!

Meanwhile, everyone says "Hey, that old show is great, how come nobody's ever done anything like it since?"

They've been talking about a theater Gilligan's Island movie since the 90s or even earlier! Remember Jim Carrey was supposed to be Gilligan & John Goodman the Skipper?

I agree it shouldn't be done now because Hollywood has gone insanely liberal to the point that it wouldn't even resemble the original cast!

Hmm.....

Gilligan the complete idiot - White male. That's OK.

The Skipper - Hawaiian, because the boat came from Hawaii and having a white guy would be racist.

Thurston Howell III - evil greedy rich white guy who is the butt of every joke Gilligan isn't - perfect!

Mrs. Howell - Strong independent woman that is really the brains of the marriage and secretly gives Thurston's money away to left wing causes.

Ginger - The movie star. Hispanic. Coochie coochies all over the place

Mary Ann - Middle America's sweet innocent tattooed lesbian

The Professor - The smartest one by far. Black woman of course. Why would you aks?

Not just that but I bet they'd make Mrs.Howell Hawaiian or black just to push their agenda as FAR as the possibly can!

That cast is unacceptable. There has to be a transgender on board. Maybe Mary Ann could be Martin.

Also, the name Gilligan's Island...I dunno. It probably needs to be named after a more acceptable character. Maybe Skipper's Isle.

One other thing...Mrs. Howell couldn't be called Lovey. No, let's call her Brains.

To make it acceptable by today's lack of standards, everybody would have to be hopping in the hammock with everyone else. Enough to make sure it has a TV14 rating.
