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.

I like the remake. I wasn't expecting much, but I really like how they changed up the story. Its not just a copycat movie. Well done.
There were big shoes to fill, considering the leads in the original movie.

don't waste your time.

OK Watched the original over 5 times Barely made it through this one once. The funny parts were spoiled by having to read the subtitles

This movie had to be very careful remaking one of Goldie Hawn's better comedies. In the end the remake didn't even come close. As a stand alone film had some funny moments with an improbable end.

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.

-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.
