YMMV: The Blue Lagoon
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: That the leading actors spend most of the film partly nude seems to be much better remembered than the storyline.
  • Fridge Logic: Why didn't Emmeline just get out of the boat and swim for the oar in the first place. It's not like she had a fancy dress on or anything, and if the kid fell out of the boat, he can swim.
    • She didn't want to get eaten by the shark. After all, she threw that second oar at it to save Richard's life.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Apparently, the film is very popular among young Romanian men. Hmmm....
    • Also in Brazil, but leaning more towards Memetic Mutation status, due to severe overplay by its biggest network.
    • The '80 film adaptation is also unironically regarded in Hungary as one of the best classic movies of all time. Seems to have gained a lot of popularity in ex-Communist European countries.
  • Glurge
  • Puppy Love
  • Sequelitis
  • Tastes Like Diabetes
