Imagine if there was a place—an island, let’s say—where your fondest wishes and your deepest desires might come true. A place where you might be reunited with lost loved ones. Where you might meet your soul mate. Where you’d be content. Happy. At peace.

This is not such a place.

Oh, you’d expect more from an island named Fantasy Island, wouldn’t you? The brochures say that it’s a place where “anything and everything can come true,” after all. And to be sure, the tropical getaway does seem like it one-ups Tahiti. It’s quite pretty. The staff is efficient, if a bit prone to creep into your bedroom at night and give you a personal wake-up tap. Mr. Roarke seems pleasant enough.

And yes, the island itself seems to have some pretty nifty magical powers. Why, you can be reunited with loved ones. You can find your soul mate there. Only problem is, these folks all eventually seem to want to kill you. Contentment? Happiness? By the end of your stay, those things feel in rather short supply. As for peace, well, there’s plenty of that to go around … of the eternal variety.

Still, can’t blame a tourist for trying, right?

And so they try. Patrick shows up, hoping to have a chance to pretend to be a soldier for a while, to feel what his heroic dead dad felt like back in the day. Gwen wants a do-over, a chance to say “yes” when her beau proposed to her five years ago. Brothers Brax and J.D. don’t want much: Just “it all,” they say, whatever that means. And Melanie? She wants to exact a little revenge on her eighth-grade bully.

But you know what they say: Be careful what you wish for.
