Anna Faris headlines MGM’s Overboard remake. And you might assume she’s taken the Goldie Hawn role of the rich bitch you falls off her yacht, and is tricked into playing mommy to a hot handyman’s tribe of wild sons. But that premise hasn’t aged well. So, instead its been gender-swapped with Faris in the Kurt Russell role, and adored Mexican movie star Eugenio Derbez in the Hawn role, portraying a callous playboy turned harried, blue-collared family man.
There’s a new trailer out that gives some more details. But none of it helps this remake seem any more essential, or even funny.
Overboard opens April 13, 2018.
