Paradise 1982: A Romantic Adventure Film Starring Phoebe Cates and Willie Aames
Paradise 1982 is a film directed by Stuart Gillard, starring Phoebe Cates and Willie Aames as two teenagers who fall in love in the desert. The film is loosely based on the novel The Blue Lagoon by Henry De Vere Stacpoole.
The film follows Sarah (Cates) and David (Aames), who are traveling with a caravan from Baghdad to Damascus in 1823. When their caravan is attacked by a group of bandits led by the Jackal (Tuvia Tavi), they escape into the desert with only a camel and a bag of supplies. Their flight leads them to a beautiful oasis - their paradise - where they discover love and sex. However, the Jackal has not given up on Sarah and pursues them relentlessly.
Paradise 1982 was controversial for its nudity and sexual content, especially involving the underage Cates. The film was also criticized for its poor acting, dialogue, and plot. However, it was a commercial success, grossing over $5 million at the box office. The film also spawned a hit song, \"Paradise\", sung by Cates and Aames.

Paradise 1982 received mostly negative reviews from critics, who panned it as a cheap imitation of The Blue Lagoon with camels. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film one star out of four, calling it \"The Blue Lagoon with camels. It is also, without doubt, the best camel movie of the year to date, though the producers probably mean it to be romantic, and camels are not, by any stretch of the imagination, romantic animals.\"[^1^] He also criticized the film's lack of realism, logic, and historical accuracy, as well as its exploitation of Cates' nudity.
However, some critics praised the film's cinematography, scenery, and music. Leonard Maltin of Entertainment Tonight gave the film two and a half stars out of four, saying that it was \"beautifully photographed\" and that Cates and Aames were \"appealing\". He also complimented the song \"Paradise\", which he called \"catchy\". The song was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1983, but lost to \"Up Where We Belong\" from An Officer and a Gentleman.
Paradise 1982 has since become a cult classic among fans of Cates and Aames, who consider it a guilty pleasure. The film is also notable for being one of the first films to feature Cates' famous bikini scene, which was later parodied in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The film has been released on VHS, DVD, and Blu-ray, with various cuts and edits. The original uncut version runs for 100 minutes and features more nudity and sex scenes than the edited versions. 0efd9a6b88
