2018 will see plenty of remakes on the big screen and one of those is of the 1987 comedy classic Overboard.
In the new version from MGM & Pantelion Films , Anna Faris & Eugenio Derbez, take over the roles and this time there’s a role reversal with the rich guy getting amnesia.
The film focuses on Leonardo (Derbez), a selfish, spoiled, rich playboy from Mexico’s richest family and Kate (Faris), a working class single mom of three hired to clean Leonardo’s luxury yacht. After unjustly firing Kate and refusing to pay her, Leonardo falls overboard when partying too hard and wakes up on the Oregon coast with amnesia. Kate shows up at the hospital and, to get payback, convinces Leonardo he is her husband and puts him to work – for the first time in his life. At first miserable and inept, Leonardo slowly settles in. Eventually he earns the respect of his new “family” and co-workers. But, with Leonardo’s billionaire family hot on their trail and the possibility of his memory returning at any moment, will their new family last or will Leonardo finally put the clues together and leave them for good?
Overboard hits theaters everywhere on April 20, 2018!
