Worst movie of the year .

throughly enjoyable.

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.

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

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

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

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

It was a torture to me.

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

So, even though the storyline is predictable, i.

Quite enjoyable throughout.

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

highly recommend it.

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

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

Don't waste your time .

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 .

Enjoyable comedy.

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

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

Light-hearted comedy with some dull moments .

This movie is tedious, predictable, and dumb.

I really enjoyed it .

Disjointed .

Simple enjoyable and relaxing movie .

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

People need to stop hating on this great entertaining film.

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.

Fun, hilarious, and overall entertaining.


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

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

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

It was enjoyable comedy.

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

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.

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

Very entertaining!.

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...

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

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

The movie overall was pretty bland.

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

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

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

Mildly entertaining .

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.

It was fun and entertaining.

I thoroughly enjoyed it!

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

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.

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

Don't waste tour time.

Save your money and watch the original.

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.

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

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

Worth watching if you are at a loose end.

Very enjoyable.

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.

Just one of the worst movies out there.

This remake is uninspired, clumsy, unfunny and boring.

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

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

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

Good enjoyable film with plenty of laughs.

It was stupid, predictable and unbelievable.

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

The plot is campy and predictable.

Another overtly politically cliche remake snoozer .

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.

Totally enjoyed it .

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

Dont waste your time and money.

It's an entertaining and funny movie.

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.

But it was reasonably entertaining.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed it.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

One of the worst movies of all time .

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

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

Is a total waste of time.

Worst movie EVER!!.

Sweet and very enjoyable .

He is dull in many parts.

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

Really enjoyed it.

" 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.

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.

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

Of course it is predictable.

This is a truly weak effort every step of the way, even from the normally enjoyable Farris who sleepwalks through every scene.

But it's an enjoyable nod to the original.

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!!!

What a waste of time .

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

Funny, light hearted and entertaining.

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

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

Left wing offensive propaganda .

Bored me to tears.

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

Dont waste your time.

Absolutely loved the original and the remake is equally entertaining .

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

"Overboard" is thoroughly enjoyable!

Even my husband enjoyed it .

-a bit predictable, but funny and entertaining.

Very enjoyable film .

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

Worst movie ever and I love Anna Farris .

Of course a little predictable, some parts slow.

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

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

This version was dull and plodding.

Definitely worth watching if you love nostalgia.

Well worth watching.

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

Worst movie I ever wanted to love .

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

Is not an Oscar performance, but an enjoyable comedy!

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

It's not fresh, witty or that enjoyable.

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