Goofs

The Bikini worn by Joan Collins' character Sadie, supposedly made on the island out of a piece of cloth taken from a sailor, is obviously professionally made and fitted, not something that could be made without any equipment on an island. See more »

nice, amusing comedy
4 January 2010 | by guenzeldSee all my reviews

I'm not quite sure what film some of the reviewers were watching when they heaped their venom upon this unassuming and cute little comedy,but it wasn't OUR GIRL Friday (aka ADVENTURES OF SADIE). Perhaps they were watching one of the several dreadful video versions available, or one of the severely cut versions. But if they had seen a nice, clear and complete version of this film I feel certain they would find in it, as I did, a pleasant diversion.

Lovely photography of Majorca (a clear video copy required to appreciate this!) coupled with some fun acting by all concerned make this an amusing story of men shipwrecked with the beautiful Joan Collins. Good humor situations and good dialog abound.

I'd term this a good snack/popcorn movie. Find that good, clear copy (rumor has it that, at long last, a decent DVD of it is about to be released) sit down on the sofa with your spouse and enjoy yourself. I can't think of a higher recommendation than that.
