Overboard The Remake

This looks absolutely horrible. A remake of the 80s Romantic Comedy with Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell. Now starring Eugenio Derbez, Anna Faris, Eva Longoria.

Hollywood has jumped the shark.

Not much interest in the movie on DL, judging from the other thread.

They couldn't find a hotter, male lead?

by Anonymousreply 201/31/2018

They should have waited and make a gay remake of this as sequel for Call Me By Your Name with Armie Hammer as rich douche and Timothee Chamalet as stuggling waiter trying to make ends meet for himself and his little brothers.

yea, why they put the old fug man in as lead for her???

Eugenio Derbez is a HUGE star in Mexico. This is his crossover effort. Poor Anna doesn't have the clout she once had being Mrs. Chris Pratt.

by Anonymousreply 805/05/2018

The Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell one was also a remake of earlier one.

by Anonymousreply 905/05/2018

How out of ideas is Hollywood? A remake of Overboard? Are you fucking kidding me?

by Anonymousreply 1005/05/2018

R4 It's not.

It's going to do about $13m for the weekend.

It cost $12m to produce.

Where did Ah-nah Faris come from? I never heard of her until a few weeks ago, and now she's everywhere. Was I asleep, or was she not a thing? Or is she getting an extra shove from Hollywood marketing?

by Anonymousreply 1205/05/2018

r12 She's been the star of a hit sitcom on CBS for five seasons. And she gets billed above an Oscar winner.

by Anonymousreply 1305/05/2018

Hit ... sitcom ... ?

(excuse me while I look it up)

It's called "Mom." And there's that other horsey looking actress in it. I didn't know this show existed.

I actually love the original...

but the remake looks like shit.

I despise Eva Longoria

She was stupid for participating in a remake of some boat movie.

by Anonymousreply 1705/06/2018

They keep trying to make Derbez happen here in the states.

Ain't gonna happen.

He's a talentless, unfunny fool.

Glad it bombed.

by Anonymousreply 1805/06/2018

wow looks horrible! makes the original seem like "Citizen Kane"

by Anonymousreply 1905/06/2018

I grew up watching Derbez on tv, and am a fan. He was very funny, and quite successful in Mexico. However, I don't believe that his jokes, and style of humor translates to American audiences. I don't find him funny at all in English. When he constantly is trying to translate his message in his head while he speaks, he loses the funny.

I guess that goes for most people speaking a language not their own.

by Anonymousreply 2005/06/2018

Ewww that leading man is fugly.

Faris looks great for 41, and I loved her in "House Bunny".

She's way better than her douchey ex.

I love the original movie. It's so endearing. This current version lacks the charm that the previous one had.

by Anonymousreply 2405/06/2018

When I saw the commercials I thought Derbez was suppose to be gay and thought that was funny having him think he was married with kids.

by Anonymousreply 2505/06/2018

Longoria said in multiple interviews that the plot of the film is exactly the same as the original. The only difference is the leads are gender-swapped.

If that's true, then I don't get the reason for a remake.

by Anonymousreply 2605/06/2018

Boy this look terrible. The male lead is disgusting too.

What the fuck was she thinking?

R29 cause this was cheap to make can make a nice profit with Derbez huge latino following and Faris big frau following.

by Anonymousreply 3105/06/2018

14 million weekend box office already making up all of the budget , this will probably get another 20-30 million easily in the states and will probably do well in Mexico. Quick cash grabs for lionsgate, Derbez, faris and Longoria.

by Anonymousreply 3205/06/2018

Opening at around $15 million is actually very good for this movie considering it only opened on 1,600 screens.

by Anonymousreply 3305/06/2018

I saw it this afternoon and came home to see what DL had already decreed.

I didn't see HTBALL. So I had no expectations of him.

I never saw the Hawn/Russel version so I had no expectations of the film.

As to Derbez, he has that cute goofy going on and I immediately took to him as a Latin Tom Hanks/Ben Affleck.

I really liked the Telenovela background, the working Latinos, THEY made this movie. Longoria was delightful.

But what made this movie was the believability that Derbez brought to his character. It could hjave been done more slapstick, more broad but Derbez took me on a trip to maturity. From Lady Hands to Man Hands. It was beautiful and charming without being ham fisted.

It is one of those movies that you think is going to waste an afternoon, but you end up liking for a number of reasons.

It was predictable, but enjoyable. I hope Derbez makes lots and lots of money Latin distribution.

by Anonymousreply 3405/09/2018

The problem is that Derbez is past his prime. We are talking about a guy who is 57 years of age. His attempt to crossover came very late.

He was at his handsomest in the late 80s-90s.

by Anonymousreply 3505/09/2018

Are you kidding, R35??

That man has never been handsome. He's a bug-eyed idiot.

by Anonymousreply 3605/09/2018

I said he is cute-goofy. He has an attractive likability.

Just as Jimmy Stewart was not classically handsome, Derbez has a a sweetness that makes him likable.

I would not want him to fuck me but I would not pass up giving him a blow job.

Did they film it in a nursing home? Are they all in wheel chairs?

by Anonymousreply 3805/10/2018

In this era of #MeToo I'm shocked they would remake a movie about the enslavement and sexual assault of someone with a brain injury who cannot give informed consent.

by Anonymousreply 3905/10/2018

Except they switched the roles so it’s the man who can’t give informed consent r39 so it’s ohhhhkay!

by Anonymousreply 4005/10/2018

They never had sex in the 80's version. The premise was, in the end Goldie Hawn fell in love with the family, and only after she knew the truth, she continued with Kurt Russell and kids.

by Anonymousreply 4105/10/2018

I saw it the other day and thought it was cute. Eva was great, age appropriate and very pretty. I didn't know it was her at first.

Anna was perfect in the role.

The lead guy was also very funny. He wasn't old, ugly or whatever you guys are speculating. He does fall in love with Anna and her kids and looks in a menial labor job (so looking bad made sense).

It was a goofy PG comedy for families--like the original. I usually dislike remakes, but this was well done.

Not sure why they'd reboot something that sucked so bad in the first place.

by Anonymousreply 4405/10/2018

Who cast the male lead? That was a really, really bad choice. Sorry, if that sounds shallow, but that role requires someone hot, hot, hot! And younger, much younger.

Obsessed much, cunt?

The characters'names are Kate and .... Leonardo. In a movie titled Overboard. Really ???

I agree with the person who said It would work better nowadays as a gay story. I would choose other actors, though.

Anyways, wasn't that Russell/Hawn vehicule a Disenyfied adaptation of Travolti Da Un Insolito Destino ....(1974), the provocative Line Wertmuller film ?

by Anonymousreply 5306/24/2018

R53 It was. The original as so hot sexually and the original was so politically charged. Madonna's remake was way worse. All the sex and politics was dumb downed.

R16 Me too.

Only way Eva could have an acting career was to suck all the cocks that Andie MacDowell overlooked.

by Anonymousreply 5506/24/2018

R54, I remember in the 80s/early 90 ? when that movie would be telecasted every summer, or so, on the more cultural channel, and my parents would watch it and have me watch as well.

Difficult to explain in 2018.

Yes, that movie was about class divide, but also the misogyny could pass because the director was a woman.
