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

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

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

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

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.

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

Not rotten, so surprisingly good in its mediocrity.
