Overboard Trailer

"I have an idea that is poetic in its justice." Pantelion Films has released the official trailer for a remake of an 80's comedy titled Overboard, from first-time movie directors Bob Fisher & Rob Greenberg. The plot is about a spoiled, wealthy yacht owner who is thrown overboard and becomes the target of revenge from his mistreated employee. It's a remake of the 1987 December comedy directed by Garry Marshall and starring Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell. This new version of Overboard stars Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris, plus Eva Longoria, John Hannah, Swoosie Kurtz, Josh Segarra, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Emily Maddison, and Mel Rodriguez. This looks a bit too wacky for my tastes, especially when she brings him home and makes him do all the work and daddy duties. Yeah, I get it, just not my kind of comedy. Dive in & have fun.

Here's the first trailer for Bob Fisher & Rob Greenberg's Overboard, direct from YouTube:

In a splashy new twist, Overboard focuses on "Leonardo" (Eugenio Derbez), a selfish, spoiled, rich playboy from Mexico's richest family and "Kate" (Anna Faris), a working-class single mom of three hired to clean Leonardo's luxury yacht. After unjustly firing Kate and refusing to pay her, Leonardo falls overboard when partying too hard and wakes up on the Oregon coast with amnesia. Kate shows up at the hospital and, to get payback, convinces Leonardo he is her husband and puts him to work -- for the first time in his life. At first miserable and inept, Leonardo slowly settles in. Eventually, he earns the respect of his new "family" and co-workers. But, with Leonardo's billionaire family hot on their trail and the possibility of his memory returning at any moment, will their new family last or will Leonardo finally put the clues together and leave them for good? Overboard is both written and directed by filmmakers Bob Fisher ("Married with Children", "Sirens", "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll") & Rob Greenberg ("Fraiser", "How I Met Your Mother", "Impastor"), both making their feature directorial debut. Pantelion Films will release Fisher & Greenberg's Overboard in theaters starting April 13th, 2018 next spring. Who's interested in it?

I can't tell if this looks stupid because I'm a big fan of the original or if it looks stupid on its own merit.

I say both.

Another pointless remake.

I always thought Anna Faris would do really well as an actress. Then there's this.

She could be the new Goldie Hawn, but didn't like the movies of Hawn. So it's a nice movie for desperate housewives and teenage girls...

she could be .. she just has something that Kate Hudson doesnt like charm and likability

I just really like Anna Faris so this is unfortunate... but i would probably watch on video one night regardless

But why? 🙁

Ms. Faris has always been a cutie, and has a face for comedy for sure, but why they remade this is beyond me...

My thoughts exactly.

Straight to the bargain bin.

Good god... Strange, I watched the original on the Sundance Channel a few nights ago, having no idea this was coming. The very next morning, I saw this on Youtube. Fuck you Hollywood.

But guys... guys... This time, the WOMAN abducts the MAN!! Omg, right? Gender roles are right on their head! All we had do to was flip the genders and now we've subverted expectations!
