Save the original and let Overboard '18 sink to the depths where it belongs

They took out all the funny and replaced it with sincerity which didn't work.

A grey, dull experience, with Faris's talents wasted and restricted to raised eyebrows and chin squeezes.

A perfectly passable example of what I call 'cotton candy' entertainment. It's light, fluffy, and makes you feel good until you get the inevitable too-sweet tummy ache later.

Unfortunately, this Faris-Derbez union feels labored and detached while bringing absolutely no intrigue, impishness, insight or naughtiness to the conventional realm of working class warfare between the haves and have-nots.

The charisma of our two leads helps elevate this gender-reversal redo of the Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell "classic." It left a pretty big grin on my face, that's for sure.

Please be safe and avoid jumping into these dark and depressing waters.

Comedy is very binary. People are either laughing or their not... If you're in a room where a comedy is playing and nobody is laughing you can hear the lack of space.

This is simply not a premise that has the strength to stand the test of time.
August 25, 2018
A generic remake that is entertaining at best, but tediously bland nonetheless.
August 8, 2018
A toothless comedy, although the stars certainly do their best to lift the material.

However, surprisingly, when it seems that you are doomed to an insufferable comedy with tone and plot of moral fable, it improves. [Full Review in Spanish]

Full of paradoxes, with no ideas. [Full Review in Spanish]

Listen, I wasn't aware of any online petitions demanding a remake Overboard.

Overboard got me to invest in its central pairing, and benefits from a Latin flavour that goes beyond Derbez, but the overall experience is ultimately pretty forgettable.

There's also something faintly depressing about a film - even a romantic comedy - that pays generous lip service to the idea that there is dignity in hard work and poverty before coming to the enthusiastic conclusion that it's much better being rich.

Playing the straight woman, Faris never gets to showcase her comic talents: she would have been wiser to have jumped ship on this stale reboot a while back.
June 25, 2018
The relationship prospects are about as seaworthy as the Titanic.
June 22, 2018
To make matters worse, the chemistry between Faris and Derbez is non-existent and makes you yearn, in a way you never thought possible, for the glory days of Hawn and Russell.

[Faris] could be a big star with the right material, perhaps something with more seriousness and pathos. Overboard isn't it.
