Overboard

A riches to rags story. If only he could remember it.


Overboard
This remake of the 1987 film of the same title switches the genders around. The two protagonists are a selfish, spoiled, rich playboy from Mexico’s richest family, and a working-class single mom of three hired to clean his luxury yacht. After reneging on the deal, the playboy parties a little too hard and falls overboard, waking up on the Oregon coast with amnesia. When his cleaner hears of this, she shows up at the hospital and, to get her money back, convinces him that he’s her husband, and makes him work for the first time in his life. At first miserable and inept, he slowly settles in. Eventually he earns the respect of his new ’family’ and that of his co-workers. But, with his wealthy family on the trail, and the possibility of his memory returning at any moment, will their new family last or will he finally put the clues together and leave them for good?

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Masego Panyane quote iconSecond can follow the first 'Overboard'.
5

Lindsey Bahr quote iconWith so many reboots and remakes and sequels out there, it's hardly productive to question why something got made anymore. Suffice it to say, you'd be safer to leave this one floating without a life jacket and just renting the '87 one again.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconLikely to be little more than a blur in a few days and certainly all but forgotten when the next remake comes out in the late 2040s.

Tomatometer quote icon Overboard makes poor use of the ever-charming Anna Faris -- and chooses questionable source material -- to offer a remake that fails to clear the fairly low bar set by the original.
