Lesson 112: Overboard – Fun-Forgettable

May 9, 2018 | Chad Riley, Eddie Villanueva, Movies, Podcasts, Spencer Williams, The Filmlosophers

The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva, Chad Riley and Spencer Williams, get rich for a few days with this week’s review of Overboard (2018). This retelling of the classic Kurt Russell-Goldie Hawn comedy reverses the dynamic between its leading man, Eugenio Derbez, and leading lady, Anna Faris, by having Kate (Faris) take advantage of privileged Leonardo’s (Derbez) amnesia to teach him a lesson about the values of hard work and family, albeit deviously and for selfish reasons.

Directed by Rob Greenberg, the film also stars Eva Longoria, John Hannah, Swoosie Kurtz and several others. And yes, it will make you want to spend an extended amount of time on a multimillion dollar yacht.
