Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Overboard
Directed by Gary Marshal
MGM Home Entertainment 1987 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R

This is a dizzy comedy directed by Garry Marshal, stars Goldie Hawn as an obnoxious and narcissistic heiress. On the same day that she humiliates a carpenter (Kurt Russell), she falls from her yacht and bangs her head. Rescued at sea, she has amnesia. The carpenter avenges himself by claiming that she is his wife and the mother of his four wild children. He takes her home, and she becomes his slave. Overboard celebrates family solidarity and laments the way wealth isolates the rich from the simple pleasures of life. Hawn and Russell are fun to watch.
