Overboard is a 2018 American romantic comedy 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 sleeper hit received mixed to negative 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.


Kate Sullivan is a single mom with three daughters and works two jobs while also studying for her nursing exam. After delivering pizzas, she takes her kids to her mother, who is suddenly going on a trip and leaving Kate without a babysitter. Kate is assigned to clean carpets on a yacht owned by Leonardo 'Leo' Montenegro, a spoiled and arrogant playboy. After meeting one another, Leo goes to have fun while Kate works. During this time, a mechanic meets up with the captain and asks about the owner. The captain shows him a security cam video of Leo having a chicken fight with three girls in a Jacuzzi. Meanwhile, Kate starts on a new room and runs into a relaxing Leo who makes rude remarks to Kate and fires her when she refuses to get him food. Not paying her, Kate starts calling him out on his boorish behavior. Fully annoyed by her, Leo pushes her off the boat along with her cleaning equipment. (Same main parts of the event, working for the rich one, not getting paid, being pushed off the boat, and throwing expensive equipment overboard too, occurred in the original Overboard as well.)

Complaining about the event to her friend Teresa, Kate asks Bobby, Teresa's husband, about a job. He says its hers if she can carry concrete bags all day. Teresa nags on her husband some more about eating too much and he talks about how he'll soon be getting back into his skinny shirts. Teresa continues to console Kate with the "help" of Bobby. She mentions helping her financially but only a little bit since her husband recently bought a boat. He defends the purchase and offers Kate comfort food.

Meanwhile, in Mexico, Leo's sisters Magdalena and Sofia are tending to their ailing father. Magda is furious when he declares that Leo will be his successor to run the family-owned company and decides to visit him. That night, Leo slips off the yacht, trying to get condoms, and falls into the ocean unnoticed. He wakes up on a beach with no memory of who he is and wanders through town, ending up in the hospital. He continues to show signs of his "handful" of a personality. Magda finds him there, but denies he is her brother upon learning about his amnesia. She returns home and falsely reports that Leo has died, bringing Mr. Montenegro an urn with what he believes to be Leo's ashes. However, Sofia doesn't believe Magda and suspects she is lying about his death.

Kate and her friend Teresa see Leo on the news and see how his sister denies knowing him. Teresa comes up with a brilliant plan and decides to use Leo to help support Kate as compensation for his earlier misdeeds towards her. Teresa sends Kate's daughters to get photos and her husbands "skinny" clothes to take to the house. Kate and Teresa go to the hospital to collect Leo, with Kate pretending to be his wife. Leo doesn't believe her until she points out a tattoo he has on his rear (another similarity between the original and remake), which she saw during their first meeting. Kate takes him home and introduces him to the girls, making up details about their alleged life together. Including saying he's a drunk (which is the reason he wound up in the ocean), sterile (which is why the white blonde girls don't look like him since they had to use a sperm donation), along with justifying his big clothes since he used to be fat because of his drunk bad choices. Kate sets Leo up with a construction job working for Bobby, which quickly exhausts him.

Over time, Leo becomes accustomed to his job and develops a bond with the girls. He supports Olivia with her sports, teaches Molly to ride a bike without training wheels, and helps Emily with her self-esteem. Kate starts to feel guilty over the lie and decides that to tell Leo the truth, but changes her mind when she sees how much the girls enjoy having Leo around. She instead tells Leo that it's their anniversary (Another similarity) and they go out dancing, share their first kiss and sleep together for the first time. The next day he finds his envelop of things that he had when he was found before ending up in the hospital but since there are only condoms in there he assumes the worse. Kate again attempts to tell Leo the truth but the girls prevent her as they feel their life is better with him in it. Teresa ends up taking the blame saying shes the one having an affair on her husband and Kate was just covering for her. (Another similarity) Kate then gets the results of her nursing exam and learns she has passed, earning a celebration party with their friends. Leo then proposes to Kate and asks for her to "marry him again", which she happily accepts.

Meanwhile, Leo's family is having a memorial service for him when one of the crew gets a picture from the mechanic at the beginning of the movie which shows Leo having a chicken fight with his family. They show this to Mr. Montenegro and head off to find him. They drive to Kate's house, and Leo’s memory returns upon seeing them. (Another similarity between the original and remake). He becomes angry and hurt about Kate lying to him, choosing to return home with his family. The girls tearfully run after him, pleading for him to stay. Olivia, the littlest one hops on her bike and chases after him the farthest. As they attempt to move on with their lives, Leo and Kate start to miss each other.

Kate soon figures out she wants to be with Leo, through some assurance from her daughters. They rush to the pizza place, yelling to Bobby that they need his boat. Bobby of course rubs his fact in his wifes face after she always tortured him on the fact there was no need for a boat. With his help, and boat, Kate and her family go after Leo and chase down the yacht. On the yacht, Leo sees how selfish and pretentious his life was before. When he apologizes to his staff for his poor behavior, he realizes how he wants to be with Kate and the girls again. Having made his decision, he goes to the captain to tell him to turn the boat around. Mr. Montenegro stops him saying he won't let him return to "that con-woman." His sisters arrive, and Sofia interrupts telling them about the news report of the Mexican woman who was thought to be Leo's sister when he was still a John Doe. Sofia reveals to everyone how Magda deliberately left him in the hospital, and faked his death, so that she could take over the company.

Their conversation is interrupted however, when Leo hears three horn blasts. He rushes out onto the deck to find Kate and the others not too far away from them. Everyone is in life jackets and waving to Leo who carries binoculars allowing him to see the full reunion. KAte calls out "Arturo! Arturo!" and Leo responds by yelling "Catalina! Catalina!" (From the story Leo told Kate before about why ships blow their horns three times (Also a call back to the original Overboard)) After Leo realizes his father has successfully started turning the boat around, Leo jumps into the water. Kate does the same jumping off her boat and the two swim to one another.

While swimming, Leo is told that he will be disowned if he goes to Kate. While Leo hesitates and attempt negotiations with his father, Bobby has shown up in the dinghy and "rescued" Kate. Mr. Montenegro then removes Leo's offer to run the company and says it will go to his sister instead. Magda, who tries to hide her gleeful smile, thanks him when Montenegro says his other sister. He tells her he is making Sofia his successor to the company instead. Sofia walks up and then offers Magda to run an overseas division for poor children in order to learn humility. Back in the water, Leo is still deciding on what to do. Despite it all, he chooses Kate; as his life was "richer when he was poor with her." With Bobby sitting behind Kate, he tries to persuade Leo to take his time making the choose mentioning how "love fades." The rest of the cast scream from their boat telling him to shut up and Kate jumps back in the water to receive the kiss she waited for.

Leo returns to a life with Kate and the girls. We see Leo preparing sack lunches for himself and the girls and he calls everyone down. Kate is wearing a nurses outfit and Colin, Leo's former employee, arrives offering his service as a nanny. After saying they couldn't afford him he mentions he was sent by Sofia. Colin was to remind Leo that he still legally owns the deed to the yacht, amounting to $60 million, which he can sell to the benefit of his new family.

Celebrating their official wedding on the yaucht, Kate and Leo kiss as two of the girls wear bridesmaid gowns and the football playing middle child wears a best man suit. The film ends there with Kate and Leo getting married, for real. During the end credits, toasts to the happy couple from various characters show up.



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]


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]


Box office

As of July 1, 2018, Overboard has grossed $50.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $36.6 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $86.8 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 26% based on 73 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]
