Overboard Reviews

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.
May 5, 2018
Anna Faris and Mexico's biggest star Eugenio Derbez step into Goldie and Kurt's shoes - but they can't keep this gender-reversed reboot from sinking like stone.

Suffice it to say, you'd be safer to leave this one floating without a life jacket and just renting the '87 one again.
May 4, 2018
Let's be real. That premise is so jacked up it's insane that Hollywood would bank on a remake.
May 4, 2018
Overboard demonstrates that not every idea deserves an encore. If the gender switch fostered some curiosity, the result is a comedy that -- even without amnesia -- would better be forgotten.
May 4, 2018
There is nothing worse than to sit through what purports to be a comedy and never have a reason to engage your laugh reflex.
May 4, 2018
A wholly adequate spin on the dying romantic-comedy genre, and both Faris and Derbez come out looking like champs.
May 4, 2018
An unwatchable mess.
May 4, 2018
To be filed under "not great but more charming than anyone might expect."
May 4, 2018
"Overboard" is strictly Derbez' show, and he's as subtle as a cartoon.
May 4, 2018
This clumsy remake is Reason No. 1 why some 1980s relics should remain locked in the vault along with Aqua-Net hairspray and Lee Press On Nails.
May 4, 2018
As more ethical lines are crossed, and the felonies being committed during the ruse multiply, "Overboard" seems more twisted than funny.
May 4, 2018
Without Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell and their effervescent chemistry, all you've got is a screwball comedy about kidnapping, made even more complicated by adding racial dynamics into the mix.
May 4, 2018
Abandon ship.
May 4, 2018
Hollywood isn't just churning out crummy remakes of great films anymore - now it's doing awful remakes of mediocre films.

The new paint job is nice, but the insides may be too creaky to salvage.
May 4, 2018
Writers and directors Bob Fisher and Rob Greenberg don't do anything particularly clever or inspired, but they display a knack for snappy dialogue and draw solid work from the cast.
May 4, 2018
Overboard lists and wanders through the shoals of secondhand comedy and eventually, just drifts away.
May 4, 2018
Overboard is a decent-to-great model for a rom-com renaissance, the kind of film that sends one out on a high note great enough to blur many of the blemishes that have come before.
