Two nubile teeny-boppers, David and Sarah (Willie Aames and Phoebe Cates) find themselves abandoned at a desert oasis. The film features plenty of food, some adventures with a bloodthirsty Arab, and enough tanned, nude flesh to arouse the film's intended teenaged audience. The acting is
laughable, the story as believable as honesty in government. PARADISE is little more than a rip-off of the 1980 teen sex film, THE BLUE LAGOON, which featured the same basic plot on a desert island. Phoebe Cates made her film debut here, but fortunately her career survived.
