"Overboard" - The Next 80's Movie Ripoff

Once again Hollywood proves that they are out of ideas.  The Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell version of "Overboard" (1987) was sort of a charming RomCom with a cute twist of the time tested amnesia theme.  The latest version reverses the male/female roles, casting Ana Faris as a carpet cleaner who gets even with a mean, super rich amnesiatic yacht owner by convincing him that he is her poor husband.

   I highly doubt the new version comes close to the old one in terms of entertainment value.  However, Goldie's extreme cuteness always helped carry her movies.  Maybe Ana Faris can do the same.  Check out these trailers and see what you think.   Let me know if you see the new one.  Your review is welcome!  


Here is the trailer for the Goldie and Kurt version.
