Apparently Return To The Blue Lagoon so long ago did not convince executives that the name Blue Lagoon should never be uttered again or put on film because they are remaking the original. Look. I have been adamant before about Hollywood trying to come up with something original and instead just recycling crap or squeezing every last drop out of a franchise that was never intended to be franchise. When you are making movies named after board games just for the marketing tie ins, then things have got out of hand. Then I heard they were remaking Blue Lagoon. Granted it is just going to be a Lifetime movie, but how can you remake an awful movie? Plus, being on Lifetime there won't even be the nudity to get you through the slow scenes. It's like producers went through the entire Katherine Heigl/Jennifer Aniston catalog over the past few years and said, lets remake them all. This time they will be better. Oh, and to make them better lets have Denise Richards act in them. You know that my attitude towards Denise has changed 180 degrees in the past few years because I think, with the exception of her choices in who she dates she has taken great care of her kids and pets and every other kid that gets dropped off at her door at 2am. Oh, it has happened.
But, she has not exactly lit up the world when it comes to acting. So, right away when you say she is going to play a big role in the remake and that Christopher Atkins is making a cameo you just have to wonder how bad it is going to be. Throw in some Tori Spelling and a dash of Shannen Doherty and some Real Housewives sprinkles and you have yourself a very low rated made for television movie.
