Blockbuster Movie Overboard

Updated on September 22, 2015

Welcome. My favorite movies are comedies, and also anything that is fun and romantic. Sometimes I choose ones that are inspirational too.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel are splendid in Overboard. Russel plays a "lowly" carpenter, and Hawn plays an aristocrat living on a luxury yacht.

The two meet because Hawn's character wants a shoe rack built. Russel is hired as the man for the job. He builds her a lovely and organized shoe rack, but it doesn't meet her expectations, and she refuses to pay him. Russell leaves, but he has not forgotten.

That night, Hawn (Joanna) falls overboard while the yacht is sailing. Joanna is saved and wakes up in the hospital with amnesia. Her own husband doesn't claim her. But Russell (Dean) sees it on the news, and decides to recoup the money that she owes him, in the form of services; by having her be a housekeeper and mother to his four children.

Joanna can't believe that she used to live in such squalor, and figures, no wonder she chose to forget it. Dean finally develops a conscience and wants to tell her, but falls in love instead.

There are plenty of laughs along the way, but eventually, Joanna remembers, and she must decide, does she go for the man that tricked her, or for the husband who left her in the hospital. Who will she choose? Who will get the yacht? Without giving the ending away, I will just say that it was well worth it, and fun.

It is rated PG, and has some love making in it, but nothing too racy. It is one hour and 46 minutes long.
