It’s been thirty years since the comedic hit, Overboard, starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The remake of this classic comedy stars Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez, Eva Longoria and Mel Rodriguez.
Sitting down with the cast in Los Angeles we talked about how the movie was modernized by switching the gender of the main roles and the coincidence of Anna Farris starring in a remake of a Goldie Hawn movie when Vulture magazine had called her this generation’s Goldie Hawn.
We also discussed lessons everyone can learn from the movie including Eva Longoria’s unborn son and because the movie is about amnesia we found out what the cast has a habit of forgetting. You’ll be surprised to find out!
A wealthy, selfish, misogynist, Leonardo, hires struggling, single mother, Kate, to clean his luxury yacht; but the hard to please playboy unfairly fires Kate and throws her cleaning equipment into the harbour.
Later Leonardo falls overboard and is rescued suffering from amnesia. Kate sees an opportunity for revenge convincing Leonardo she is his wife and in a series of comedic events Kate puts Leonardo to work wondering how long she can keep up the pretence.
