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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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