Film Review: Overboard 2018 (5/10)

Overboard2

Director: Rob Greenberg

Starring:  Anna Faris Euginio Derbez, Eva Longoria

If you remember and enjoyed the original 1987 Overboard film staring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn then you will enjoy this one too with the roles switched in the new one.

The film is light and funny and perfectly suitable if you want to relax in cinema for couple of hours.

The story is about a working class single mother who convinces a playboy with amnesia that they are a married couple to revenge for the way he treated her when she was hired to clean the carpets of his massive yacht.

While overall the film was funny with many nice jokes, there were many places were the jokes were not natural or the performance was not convincing. it is possibly I felt this way because I keep comparing it to the original one and how natural and spontaneous both Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were.
