But it's an enjoyable nod to the original.

The plot motors along to the same beat as the original which is why I enjoyed it.

So, even though the storyline is predictable, i.

Overall, a decent comedy, with enjoyable characters, which has also a lot of family moral, and will let you feeling happy at the end.

Despite good performances from Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez, it's too predictable to recommend .

It's not fresh, witty or that enjoyable.

Really enjoyed it.

Ok so honestly this movie bombed so bad.. it's Spanish language overtakes the movie and it's unbearable.. nothing like the original and not funny in the least .

highly recommend it.

Fun, hilarious, and overall entertaining.

'Overboard' is not a movie I was looking forward to because it seemed like a pointless remake.

First and foremost, I thought this movie was going to be one of those that I would fall asleep after a long day at work.

But this was pretty entertaining and very sweet!!

The Latin flare is a great new twist but for a significant portion to be subtitled is really disjointed.

This film was horrible and the drab script added nothing to Anna's comedic talent.

Don't waste your time .

I rate this 3 Since the original 1987 version I give it a 6 which is good enough so this one maybe half as good as the old one for some reasons like the main one is that this was boring also you know whats coming plus for that Spanish language I wasn't able to understand half of the movie so if you watched the original one just stick to it and don't watch this crap if you don't then also watch the 1987 version funnier and more enjoyable if you don't like watching classic old movies then don't watch neither

They have been spewing open man-hate propaganda for 15yrs now.

throughly enjoyable.

It was awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone in the health industry who is up for a meaningful adventure abroad!

Now this pampered playboy must perform menial tasks at home for Kate and labour intensive lawn work at his new job.

Wait for it to come out for free , don't waste your money ...

I did not see the original but this movie made me laugh, cry and I found it very entertaining.

But it was reasonably entertaining.

The movie overall was pretty bland.

This movie was so painful to watch we walked out at the 30 minute mark and I've only walked out of 2 other movies in my life!!!

Hard to follow a movie when you don't understand what is being said.

it's not as well put together as its predecessor, but within this remake is a fun, entertaining moral filled fest for the whole family.

In this version, the mother wasn't so funny, and the humor for the "father" was slow.

With that said, the new Overboard has some touching moments and a few fun performances, even if it's ultimately about as predictable and forgettable as you can imagine.

Worst movie ever and I love Anna Farris .

But, the plot of the movie is so cliche just like so many other movies made in Hollywood.

But it was not bad, if they just talked slower, I could even learn little :-)Comparing with original from 1987, written by same writer, just with switched genders is inevitable.

"Overboard" 2018 is one of the worst movies I've ever seen, and I've seen "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.

I really enjoyed it and, judging from it's reaction, the audience I was with did too.

Light-hearted comedy with some dull moments .

Eclectic cast, but really enjoyable, quirky and off the wall funny!

If you waste your time and money to see this, you'll get exactly what you deserve.


Of course a little predictable, some parts slow.

He is dull in many parts.

However, it's executed with sufficient panache, that even the plot developments that one fully expects are enjoyable.

Making fun of over the top telenovelas, or about the inability for people to work are just some of the pokes in store for this movie, and it's quite entertaining to watch.

Very entertaining!.

Go watch her in 'What's Your Number' opposite Chris Evans then compare it to this bland yuck....

While the broad brushstrokes are often predictable, the film offers some subtle nuances which are unexpected.

Good enjoyable film with plenty of laughs.

Simple enjoyable and relaxing movie .

Disjointed .

This version was dull and plodding.

On the downside, it is a little formulaic, often predictable and a bit schmaltzy.

I enjoyed the first Overboard movie with Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell; this movie with the new actors and slightly different plot was quite enjoyable to watch.

It's not meant to be Shakespeare and it's not, but it's a gentle watch and I enjoyed it.

Worst movie of the year .

Quite enjoyable throughout.

It was entertaining, touching and funny,(even hubby laughed which is rare!

I left the theater having enjoyed a movie without feeling like I had been hit over the head with a volume of Shakespeare or that I was left hanging waiting for the sequel or that somehow I was to know the deep dark secret the director wants me to know...

-a bit predictable, but funny and entertaining.

Dont waste your time and money.

It was stupid, predictable and unbelievable.

Is not an Oscar performance, but an enjoyable comedy!

But Derbez scenes with the kids are enjoyable, and Eva Longoria does steal some scenes has Faris best friend, and some side characters are pretty funny to watch.

Its 10000% predictable and not really funny when you see the joke coming before they deliver it.

I found the soundtrack a little goofy, but the supporting roles are well cast with a few very intriguing sub-plots.

When millenials do remakes, it's usually predictable and not really funny.

Left wing offensive propaganda .

It was fun and entertaining.

But, the first 1/3 of the movie was completely boring and I struggled to get engrossed with the characters.

It was enjoyable comedy.

Mildly entertaining .

The plot is campy and predictable.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed it.

Worst movie EVER!!.

Enjoyable comedy.

This is formulaic in the basics: two people repel each other, fall in love, have a complicating development, profess love in some public, dramatic way and are reconciled.

1 out of 5 stars (one of the worst movies I've ever seen) I've been reviewing movies since 2005, and I've seen a lot of clunkers.

It is so predictable after certain point that you'd only wish it was over.

Funny, light hearted and entertaining.

The film has received mostly negative reviews from critics but I enjoyed it mostly.

I rate this 3 Since the original 1987 version I give it a 6 which is good enough so this one maybe half as good as the old one for some reasons like the main one is that this was boring also you know what's coming plus for that Spanish language I wasn't able to understand half of the movie so if you watched the original one just stick to it and don't watch this crap if you don't then also watch the 1987 version funnier and more enjoyable if you don't like watching classic old movies then don't watch either.

Very enjoyable.

All in all, if you want to have a nice, enjoyable evening with your friends or family, I would really recommend watching this movie.

" You go to see a film like this, and as you gaze at the boring, leaden, absurd, lifeless train wreck up on the screen, you think, "This was made by Hollywood professionals who are all multimillionaires" and you think about your own bank account and nothing adds up and you decide you need to try absinthe.

What a waste of time .

As I mentioned before, the story dragged along a few times - in my opinion, a couple "fluff" scenes could have been cut altogether.

If you waste your time and money to see this, you'll get exactly what you deserve.

They thoroughly enjoyed it and at the end, we all agreed it was wirth the time spent.

He summarily fires a chef, whose food is boring and refuses to pay a carpet cleaner who refuses to kowtow to his whims.

I was so excited to see this movie, but it was a waste of my time.

This movie is predictable and not terribly realistic or original, but it sure is entertaining!

I loved it, enjoyed it with my sis and had a great time!

It's an entertaining and funny movie.

"Overboard" is thoroughly enjoyable!

Save your money and watch the original.

A good entertaining movie with simple ideas about love and life.

While it doesn't beat the original, I found this updated version to be cute, funny and engaging.

Dont waste your time.

This of course caused confusion at several points in a movie attempting to just replicate the original story.

Faris is reminiscent of Goldie Hawn, though in the opposite role and there are enough similarities, even exact lines from and nods to the originally to make the movie fun and enjoyable.

It was a torture to me.

The two main actors are very bad, the plot is predictable, you don't really get the feeling of the movie, it never makes you think she is really poor.

Don't waste tour time.

Bored me to tears.

Very enjoyable film .

People need to stop hating on this great entertaining film.

Of course it is predictable.

Worst movie I ever wanted to love .

I just watched this as a whim on Netflix and really enjoyed it!

Totally enjoyed it .

Is a total waste of time.

Sweet and very enjoyable .

It was a sweet, entertaining and almost retro (70s?

While I can't call this a bad comedy, it is a predictable and stale one.

Congratulations Overboard remake for being the worst movie I ever wanted to love.

Just one of the worst movies out there.

I really enjoyed it .

Pathetic PC attempt at a pointless Spanish language remake of areas movie .

I thoroughly enjoyed it!

The 3 girls are "Canadian cute" and I might even have to buy this one, which is an amazing statement for a movie the critics called stupid and boring.

I'm warning you skip this and don't waste your money .. bet the Latinos will be happy this movies a bust !

The inclusion of spanish or foreign language disjointed the movie in parts and felt like was watching a totally different movie.

I enjoyed it and would watch it again if it was on tv.

Absolutely loved the original and the remake is equally entertaining .

Predictable and flat nothing comedic about this film, a real yawnner.

I'll admit, this movie was not a top end high rated movie, but it was still an entertaining movie with a predictable outcome.

I was initially, in the beginning parts of the movie, going to rate lower, but found the acting, and humorous (and intelligent at times) dialogue engaging.

The pointless remake of the 1980s original, this update switches the genders of the antagonist and protagonist with no comedic pay-off.

:(Hopefully, she finds something that compliments her comedy/acting style better and avoids predictable garbage in the future.

The Pace: Remakes can sometimes feel like a drag depending on the direction they take, but surprisingly Overboard makes a nice go at keeping things entertaining.

Worth watching if you are at a loose end.

Politically correct from beginning to end and only mildly entertaining.

Even my husband enjoyed it .

I also found it surprisingly funny, sweet, heartfelt, and utterly enjoyable.

A typical cliche love story between a rich spoiled man and a poor struggling single mom.

This remake is uninspired, clumsy, unfunny and boring.

Seriously, Adam Sandler's worst movie is head and shoulders above this Mexican cocaine funded after school special.

Definitely worth watching if you love nostalgia.

Whilst it was pro-feminist propaganda, no feminist would even enjoy it.

One of the worst movies of all time .

Another overtly politically cliche remake snoozer .

But like a slow start to a championship football game, the story rises to the occasion quickly and stays there.

This movie is tedious, predictable, and dumb.

Well worth watching.
