Rescue From Gilligan's Island is a made-for-television movie released in 1978. It serves as a sequel to the hit 1960s sitcom, Gilligan's Island. The movie features the beloved cast members of the original show, including Bob Denver, Alan Hale Jr., and Jim Backus. The story picks up where the original series left off, with the seven castaways still stranded on the deserted island. When a group of Russian cosmonauts crash land on the island, the castaways must work together to rescue them and get off the island once and for all.

Gilligan, the bumbling first mate, steps up to lead the way in the rescue mission. He enlists the help of the Professor, the wealthy Mr. Howell, and his wife Lovey, the movie star Ginger, and the wholesome Mary Ann. Together, they build a raft and set out to save the stranded cosmonauts.

The journey is full of obstacles and challenges along the way, including a run-in with a group of pirates who try to ransack the raft. But the castaways use their ingenuity and teamwork to overcome each obstacle and continue on their mission.

Meanwhile, back on the island, Gilligan's long-time crush, Ginger, begins to develop feelings for the Professor. Mr. Howell tries to use his wealth to gain favor with the rescue crew, while Lovey is more concerned with staying glamorous despite their dire circumstances. Mary Ann remains determined to make it off the island and back to civilization.

As the rescue mission continues, the castaways also discover that the cosmonauts are being pursued by Russian spies who are determined to keep them from being rescued by the Americans. This adds an element of danger and intrigue to the already high-stakes rescue mission.

Throughout the movie, the characters stay true to their original personalities from the sitcom. Gilligan is still endearingly clumsy, the Professor is the brains behind the group, and Mr. Howell is still focused on his wealth and status. Despite their differences, they all come together to achieve a common goal - to finally be rescued from the island.

Rescue From Gilligan's Island is a fun and entertaining continuation of the original series, with plenty of laughs and hijinks to keep fans of the show entertained. The witty banter and funny antics of the characters are still as enjoyable as ever, and the addition of new characters and plot twists keeps the story fresh and engaging.

Overall, Rescue From Gilligan's Island is a must-see for fans of the original sitcom and anyone looking for a fun and lighthearted adventure movie. It's a nostalgic look back at a beloved TV classic and a fun continuation of the story of these unforgettable characters.
