The Blue Lagoon is a 1980 English language romance and adventure film starring Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins, produced and directed by Randal Kleiser. The screenplay by Douglas Day Stewart was based on the novel The Blue Lagoon by Henry De Vere Stacpoole. The original music score was composed by Basil Poledouris and the cinematography was by Nestor Almendros. The film was marketed with the tagline "A sensuous story of natural love."

The film tells the story of two young children shipwrecked on a tropical island in the South Pacific. Emotional feelings and physical changes arise as they reach puberty and fall in love. The film has major thematic similarities to the Biblical story of Adam and Eve.

The film included several nude scenes of actors Brooke Shields (or her body double) and Christopher Atkins.
