Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Romantic - This is a gender-reversed reimagining/update of the 1987 Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell romantic comedy, with Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris taking over the lead roles. Fans of the stars, as well as supporting star Eva Longoria, will enjoy this film though Faris fans may be a little disappointed by her playing the straight person here for the most part. Some language and suggestive humor make the film not for young kids, but parents of pre-teens may consider this to be acceptable.

Critic's Review Heading

NY Post Full Review
Poor Hollywood isn't just churning out crummy remakes of great films anymore — now it's doing awful remakes of mediocre films. For evidence, see "Overboard.” Or, rather, don't. ...starring the much less appealing duo of Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez. It really sinks.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Average Even by the standards of disbelief-suspending comedy, the remake's plot is damn near impossible to swallow, especially when there's such an abundant lack of chemistry. Or, worse, when Leo turns good guy and starts to enjoy being a poor workslave and also, like, everybody loves him!

Slant Magazine Full Review
Poor All of the broad physical humor and nods to telenovelas can't distract from the fact that Overboard seems to endorse psychological exploitation as a means not just of revenge but, more disturbingly, of creating a tight-knit family unit.

Newsday Full Review
Below Average never actually manages to be a good movie. The one thing they do get right in the remake is to liken the outlandish amnesia tale to the melodramatic telenovelas that are constantly watched in the kitchen of the pizza shop where Kate (Faris), a single mom of three girls, delivers pizzas.

Opinion Heading

Sorry, we were unable to collect moviegoer opinions.
This movie did not open in a city where we collect opinions.

Hailing from one of Mexico's richest families, Leonardo Montenegro (Eugenio Derbez) has it all as a cheerfully spoiled, rich playboy who epitomizes the luxurious life of all play and no work. Meanwhile, Kate Sullivan (Anna Faris) more than represents the hard-working single mother, wrangling children and multiple jobs, all while studying to become a nurse. These disparate lives are destined to cross when Kate is hired to clean up the glittery aftermath of Leo's latest party on the family's glamorous yacht. Yet, when Kate staunchly refuses to honor Leo's request to bring him a snack, he unjustly fires her without pay, setting in motion a series of events that change both their lives.

Heading home to Mexico on his family's orders, Leo's decision to continue his seafaring celebration leads to the ultimate hangover as he accidentally falls overboard in the dead of night. After being found walking the streets of an Oregon town with amnesia, Leo is sent to a local hospital to recover. As Leo's story makes the local news, Kate's quick-thinking boss Theresa (Eva Longoria) sees a golden opportunity to help her financially strapped friend: pretend to be Leo's wife... just for a little while.

Armed with the perfect fake marriage certificate and an earnest smile, Kate's ruse succeeds better than she could have ever imagined. After a few tough starts and some never-before-experienced callouses, Leo goes from being a rudderless playboy to a happy working-class dad of three in no time. Yet, as he settles into a vida less loca, it is only a matter of time before Leo's family - or memory - catches up to the truth. Can a vengeful little lie keep a new love and family together?

Sometimes, you just need to go a little overboard to find out.
