This is one of those movies that wasn't that great, but it was funny and you'd didn't regret
wasting your time watching it. At a glance, I wasn't sure about the two main characters
chemistry but it wasn't that bad. If you're looking for something funny to watch with a bit of
romance, look into this one.

This film surprised me. The cast was very good, with some fall-over laughing moments and some sappy ones that evened out the predictable story line. Overall, it was worth the watch. Anna Faris is this generation's Lucille Ball, her comedy timing is brilliant.

Tenderness, love, and wry ticklish humour even in the subtitled Spanish dialogue.
Some tweaking of the original to make it interesting.
But why a remake? Are we so short of ideas or afraid of taking risks, we need to borrow from past achievements? Why not just write a new script or reboot with new ideas?

I started to watch this with a friend and we both thought it was so bad that we didn't even watch the whole movie. Instead of watching this movie I recommend the original film starring Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell.

Strange choice for the male lead. His acting was a bit one dimensional and hard to accept as a romantic role.
Some funny situations but a let-down compared to the original.

It is a comedy, a reversal of the original overboard. In this one a man falls overboard and is kidnapped by a woman. It's funny yet sensitive. Really enjoyed it!

I found it dragged out and not funny.
The lead actors seem like they were forcing their roles, where as the co-stars did a great job with what they had to work with & were pretty much the only reason worth watching the movie in my opinion.
My youngest thought it was good.
My eldest did not like it.
Will be showing them the original over the weekend.

Romance comedy. As the title suggests, it uses the original "Overboard" story formula but successfully makes it a different story using 2 lead characters with different backgrounds. For me, the lead male seemed too feminine to make me believe he was a playboy millionaire.

A funny remake of this classic comedy—except this time the gender is flipped and Mexican star Eugenio Derbez plays the mega-rich, condescending playboy who falls off his yacht. He loses his memory and winds up being scammed by the very woman he cheated (Anna Faris). She's a widowed single mom holding down two jobs while she studies for her nursing degree. Egged on by her best friend (Eva Longoria), Anna gets revenge by persuading him that they're married, he's an uneducated laborer, an alcoholic in recovery, and a devoted father to her three daughters. General hilarity ensues as he grapples with his new roles and liberal Anglo/conservative Mexican culture clashes. The Norwegian captain and crew view it all with bemusement. There's also a droll/poignant subplot with his scheming sister who wants to lead the family business but is constantly frustrated due to the macho culture. Note: occasional Spanish with English subtitles: great for bilingual families. Family friendly for older kids.

The change in story and ending was refreshing but I thought the commentary quoted and mirrored the original too closely at times. the acting was fine and fun but not as good as the dynamic and skill of Goldie and Kurt.

Only these two quotes in IMDb:

Molly: What's a pervert ?
Kate: Nothing.
Molly: Can I have one ?

Leonardo: [to his doctor] Can you get me a prettier nurse ?

Here are more:

I'm a grown man with a tattoo on his butt.
-Is that Speedy Gonzales?
Do you know another cartoon mouse with a sombrero? I hate the pussycat.
-Let me guess, you were, uh, a little tipsy when you got that?
Not at all. I love Speedy. He's fast, he's charming. He's Mexican. He outsmarts the pussycat and brings delicious cheese to his people. And he's just fun to look at.

You're not the only one with a dead husband.
-Dad's not dead, you're divorced!
===
Just because those girls were not conceived with my seed, doesn't make me any less their father or a man.
-Of course not. I just...
I'm not done. All I do is work and work and slave for this family. I may not have put us in the lap of luxury, but I'm a provider.
===
It's just that most people don't actually have to choose between love and money.
-It's not easy.
It's easy. I choose you.
--- Leo, you're giving up a lot, dude. No one would begrudge you if you wanted to take a few minutes.
-Bobby, would you stay out of this?
---What? I'm just saying! Love fades, okay? I mean, it's wonderful. But some of the excitement goes away. Now, money...
===
No. Fair is fair. He has paid his debt. I have tortured him long enough.
-Okay. You're really gonna hate doing your own laundry again.
