Overboard is a 2018 American romantic comedy film directed by Rob Greenberg. The screenplay was written by Greenberg, Bob Fisher, and Leslie Dixon, and the film stars Eugenio Derbez, Anna Faris, Eva Longoria, John Hannah, and Swoosie Kurtz.[4][5] It is a remake of the 1987 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film of the same title but with the roles reversed, where a struggling, working-class single mother convinces a rich playboy with amnesia that they are married.

Overboard was released in the United States on May 4, 2018, surpassing analysts predictions by grossing close to $92 million worldwide, against a modest budget of $12 million. The film received unfavorable reviews from critics, who praised Faris's comedic performance, but criticized the mediocre story that didn't add anything new to the original. Overboard was Mexico’s fifth highest grossing picture of 2018, and placed 34th on the list of worldwide grosses for the same period.

Plot

Kate Sullivan is a single mom with three daughters working two jobs. She is assigned to clean carpets on a yacht owned by Leonardo 'Leo' Montenegro, a spoiled and arrogant playboy. Leo makes rude remarks towards Kate and fires her without pay when she refuses to bring him food. After Kate reacts and calls out his behavior, Leo pushes her off the boat along with her cleaning equipment.

Meanwhile in Mexico, Leo's sisters Magdalena and Sofia are tending to their ailing father. Magda is furious when Leo is announced as his successor to run the family-owned company, so she decides to visit him. That night, Leo slips off the yacht and falls into the ocean unnoticed. He wakes up on a beach with amnesia and no recollection of his identity. He wanders through town, eventually ending up at a nearby hospital. Magda finds him and leaves him there unclaimed after learning he has amnesia. She returns home and falsely reports that Leo has died. Sofia suspects Magda is lying.

Kate and her friend Theresa see a news report on Leo's situation. To compensate Kate for Leo's earlier misdeeds, they scheme to take advantage of his amnesia by tricking him into believing he's married to Kate. They arrive at the hospital, and convince Leo of the ruse when Kate correctly identifies a tattoo on his rear – a detail she noticed on the yacht. Kate takes him home and introduces him to her girls, making up details about their alleged life together. Kate sets Leo up with an exhausting construction job working for Theresa's husband Bobby.

Leo eventually becomes accustomed and develops a bond with the girls. Kate begins to feel guilty and considers telling Leo the truth, however she changes her mind after seeing how much the girls enjoy having Leo around. Instead, they spend the evening celebrating a new revelation from Kate: it's their anniversary. The next day, Leo discovers condoms. He assumes the worst, but after confronting Kate, Theresa takes the blame stating she was having an affair. Leo and Kate decide to renew their vows.

Meanwhile, Leo's family is having a memorial service for him when a picture depicting a chicken fight involving Leo is presented. Mr. Montenegro realizes the lie he's been told and heads off to find Leo. After seeing his father arriving at Kate's house, Leo’s memory returns. Hurt and angry, he leaves to return to his yacht. The girls tearfully run after him and plead for him to stay.

Kate decides to go after Leo, and with her daughters, they rush to the pizza place to borrow Bobby's boat to chase after the yacht. Meanwhile, Leo has become aware of how selfish and pretentious his life was before meeting Kate and the girls. He realizes he wants to be with them and has the captain turn the boat around. Mr. Montenegro attempts to stop him, but Sofia interrupts the dispute and reveals how Magda deceived everyone by faking Leo's death in order to take over the company. Three horn blasts are heard, and Leo rushes out onto the deck to find Kate and the girls nearby. Kate calls out "Arturo! Arturo!" and Leo responds by yelling "Catalina! Catalina!", a reference to a story Leo told Kate. After realizing his father has resumed course, Leo jumps into the water. Kate does the same as the two swim to one another and share a kiss. Leo dismisses threats from his father, who in the process decides to name Sofia as his new successor.

Leo returns to a life with Kate and the girls. Leo's former employee, Colin, arrives to offer his service as a nanny. After telling him they can't afford him, he mentions Sofia sent him to remind Leo that he still legally owns the yacht, worth $60 million. Kate and Leo marry aboard the yacht, and during the end credits, friends and family toast the newlyweds.

Cast

Production

In March 2017, it was announced that Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez will star in a re-imagining of the original 1987 film with Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher co-directing. The main roles are reversed from the original film. Derbez will portray a wealthy man who falls off of his yacht and is found by Faris' character, a single mother who convinces him that he is her husband.[6] Filming began in Vancouver in May 2017.[7] Eva Longoria joined the cast that month.[8]

Release

Overboard was originally scheduled to be released on April 20, 2018, by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Lionsgate Films.[9] In January 2018, the release date was rescheduled for April 13, 2018.[10] In March 2018, the film's release was rescheduled for May 4, 2018,[11] to avoid competing against the rescheduled release of Avengers: Infinity War.[12]

Reception

Box office

As of July 1, 2018, Overboard has grossed $50.3 million in the United States and Canada, and $40.9 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $91.2 million, against a production budget of $12 million.[3]

In the United States and Canada, Overboard was released alongside Tully and Bad Samaritan, and was projected to gross around $12 million from 1,623 theaters in its opening weekend.[13] The film made $4.8 million on its first day, including $675,000 from Thursday night previews, an improvement from the $450,000 made by Derbez's How to Be a Latin Lover the year before. It went on to debut to $14.8 million, finishing second behind holdover Avengers: Infinity War; like Derbez's other films, Latinos made up a predominant amount of the audience (41%).[14] It fell 31% to $10.1 million in its second week, dropping to fourth behind Avengers: Infinity War ($64.8 million), Life of the Party ($18.2 million) and Breaking In ($16.5 million).[15]

Critical response

On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 25% based on 80 reviews, and an average rating of 4.2/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Overboard makes poor use of the ever-charming Anna Faris – and chooses questionable source material – to offer a remake that fails to clear the fairly low bar set by the original."[16] On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 42 out of 100, based on reviews from 27 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[17] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A–" on an A+ to F scale, while PostTrak reported filmgoers gave it an 83% overall positive score.[14]

Variety's Owen Gleiberman wrote, "Overboard has been made with enough bubbly comic spirit and skill that the gender switch turns out to be a smart move, from both an entertainment and commercial vantage."[18] Conversely, Johnny Oleksinski of the New York Post wrote "Hollywood isn't just churning out crummy remakes of great films anymore — now it's doing awful remakes of mediocre films. For evidence, see Overboard. Or, rather, don't."[19]
