'Gilligan's Island' Is Coming To A Movie Theater Near You: Blow Me, Little Buddy.

Hollywood is once again plumbing the depths of sitcom history to cash in on nostalgia instead of creating something new to vomit onto the movie screen. “Gilligan’s Island” is getting the same treatment as “The Brady Bunch”, “Bewitched”, “Get Smart”, and numerous others. What does this remake have going for it?

It’s being penned by Josh Gad (Frozen, The Book of Mormon), Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez (1600 Penn). If we’re lucky, we’ll get another 21 Jump Street. If we’re very unlucky, we’ll get something like this:

Let’s hope the unlucky castaways get to make jokes instead of constantly being the butt of them. Or let’s hope this never leaves the initial stage of production. That would be fine too.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • Robert Sanchez III

    If this goes the absurd comedy of characters in a more grounded situation route I could see a funny movie coming out of it but history is not on its side.

  • Blake Shrapnel

    I'm not sure if it's the end times, but if it is then the reboot of Gilligan's Island is probably the antichrist.

  • Some Guy

    Will the Harlem Globetrotters be making a surprise appearance?

  • The Brady Bunch movies were brilliant parodies of the series. “Bewitched”, “Get Smart”? Pure ass.

  • Guest

    Wouldn't 'Gilligan's Island' pretty much be LOST in movie form?

  • BWeaves

    No, Lost was Gilligan's Island in plane crash form, without the catching theme song.

  • Ben

    As if the Brady Bunch movies weren't fucking amazing.
    Those movies were fucking golden.

  • Barry

    Gary Cole, bitches!

  • Three_nineteen

    The Brady Bunch movies were good. (Let me guess - too young to have watched the TV show?) Try bashing on the Dukes of Hazzard movie.

  • Wrestling Fan

    Don't you DARE talk bad about the Brady Bunch movies!

  • Christina Hendricks as Ginger?

  • Green Lantern

    Ooh yes.

  • Guest

    Yes!

    Jenna Coleman would be my first choice as Mary Ann, but she'd probably not win the populous vote so maybe Alison Brie?

    Eric Bana for the Professor.

    Cranston and Paul for Skipper and Little Buddy.

    And Michael Caine as Thurston Howell III.

  • Barry

    How's about John Goodman as The Skipper? And as for possible Gilligans...

    Nick Cage
    Charlie Day
    Steve Buscemi

    If anyone says Adam Driver I'll fuckin' cut 'em (not really, but you will get a very stern look).

  • This might matter, if I, or anyone I know or have ever known, had ever given a fraction of a shit about Gilligan's Island.

    I think their entire demographic is dead of old age.

  • BWeaves

    I'm still alive.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Sorry if old piles of bones like me are taking up space and using your air. I'm sure I'll kick it soon.

  • DominaNefret

    I own the entire series on DVD. The Musical Hamlet episode is pure brilliance.

  • HerGuyWednesday

    I ask to be / Or not to be / That is the question that I ask of thee. Pure brilliance indeed.

  • Modiano

    I disagree, but upvoting anyway because downvotes are not my style.

    I don't remember a whole lot about the series, but I watched a lot of it in the 80's. The Professor was one of my first childhood crushes!

  • HerGuyWednesday

    Blasphemy. For kids of the 70s and 80s, the reruns were on constantly, and the TV movies were big events.

  • Chacun à son goût and everything; but...you poor bastards.

  • HerGuyWednesday
