Movie Metropolis

Solid, fun entertainment that continued to show an appreciative public that Hawn was more than a ditzy blonde.

Marshall's sunny, sitcomedic comedies tend to be kinda bad but also compulsively watchable, and this one's no exception... [Blu-ray]

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are truly the only reasons to keep watching this otherwise flaccid comedy, which feels static when it should zing and oppressive when it should soar.

'80s comedy has some iffy stuff for PG; won't interest kids.

Kurt Russell abuses Goldie Hawn into becoming a better, more caring woman? Who thinks this stuff is funny? Lots of people, unfortunately.

A good screwball comedy.

Overboard is a dizzy comedy about the ways in which wealth insulates the rich from the simple pleasures of life.

Professionally done romantic comedy, but not worth the bother.

Not rotten, so surprisingly good in its mediocrity.

Cute and inoffensive. Sweet but not so much that you hate yourself for liking it. This is a good thing.

| Original Score: 4/5

While the prospect of watching Miss Hawn play a rude, nasty socialite is appealing, and even the transformation to homebody is a funny idea, Overboard winds up taking things too far.

Mediocre in every way. Memorable only because of whimsical camp value.

If there's an amnesia movie worse than Overboard, it slips my mind.
