When Overboard hit theaters in 1987, it was met with mixed reception. However, through the power of repeat airings via cable television, the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell romantic comedy gained a cult following. A remake of the original Garry Marshall-directed film arrives in theaters next year.
The re-imagining features a gender swap of the leading roles. The story now focuses on a spoiled playboy from one of Mexico’s wealthiest families, falling overboard off his yacht. He’s then convinced by a single, working-class mom that he’s her husband. Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris portray the playboy and working mom respectively. Eva Longoria and Swoosie Kurtz also star.
The first trailer for the remake has arrived and it’s cuter than I expected. Mind you, I love Anna Faris. Check it out below. Overboard sails into theaters on April 20, 2018.
