Anna Ferris' Remake of The Classic Comedy OVERBOARD Looks Awful! Watch the Trailer
This remake of the classic 1987 comedy Overboard was a bad idea. The first trailer has been released and it looks absolutely terrible. Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn starred in the original film and it was a great and funny movie. This remake, which stars Anna Ferris and Eugenio Derbez, looks like an empty shell of a film an embarrassment. And I like Anna Ferris!
The film basically takes the same story but switches the roles around. Remember when Kurt Russell's character is treated like crap by a snobby rich woman? Then after she falls off her yacht into the water and loses her memory, he claims to be her husband and turns her into his slave? In this movie, Ferris takes on Russell's role and Derbez takes on Hawn's role. Here's the synopsis:
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 rspect 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?
Whoever thought that this remake would be a good idea should have rethought things because this poorly executed film looks terrible. It may look like a cheap directed to DVD film, but this porr excuse for a remake hits theaters on April 20th, 2018.
