Overboard (12A)

Romance, Comedy

US romantic comedy in which a struggling single mother tricks an amnesiac playboy into believing they are married.

The critical consensus

Daft but enjoyably escapist remake elevated by stars Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez.

***(*)(*)Karen Krizanovich, The List, 18/06/2018

Hardly likely to convince anyone that remakes are worthwhile, Overboard ekes out laughs but fails to add the romance to the comedy. We’d leave this one in the water.

**(*)(*)(*)James White, Empire Online, 19/06/2018

This romantic comedy lacks the fizz of the Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell original, and its revamped plot doesn't hold water.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 20/06/2018

The strained story of a cleaner who takes revenge on her amnesiac, yacht-owning employer lacks fizz and fun.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 22/06/2018

This new version of the Goldie Hawn amnesia comedy sadly forgets to make sure the principals have any chemistry.
