Starring Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez and Eva Longoria, Overboard is a comedy / romance about a very spoiled, wealthy yacht owner who ends up the target of revenge at the hands of his mistreated employee.
Directors Bob Fisher and Rob Greenberg’s movie is exactly as I thought; just the kind of ridiculousness I could enjoy – especially whilst in the mood for an ‘easy-going movie.’
I was moved, amused and the dynamic between Faris and Longoria’s characters is a personal highlight. In fact, I liked the chemistry between the entire cast. There’s a a togetherness and sense of community between them that shone through and made me smile.
I think I wasn’t more enthusiastic at trailer viewing stage because of how the last Eugenio Derbez movie – How To Be A Latin Lover turned out. It might even be safe to say at this point that Derbez has crossed over from the Latin American market into my movie loving heart; something I’m sure had a little to do with his characters personal growth as the film progressed.
Having not seen the 1987 version of this movie, I haven’t a clue how they compare. Either way I say watch it when in the mood for an ‘easy’ film and because Faris is always fun.’
Happy Film Loving
