Overboard Trailer

No one was clamoring for a remake of Overboard, but here we are with a new version of the amnesiac romantic comedy.

Anna Faris stars in a new take on the 1987 movie starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, which does away with some of the more problematic elements of the original story. In this version, Faris plays an overworked single mother trying to provide for her children, but ends up getting fired from one of her jobs by a rich asshole (Eugenio Derbez). So when this wealthy jerk falls off his expensive yacht and ends up washed up on a beach with amnesia, she has no problem convincing him that they’re married and forcing him to head out into the workforce.
