You'll go overboard for more laughs and a good time
Overboard is the kind of a fun movie to watch anytime. I saw it the movie theater 14 years ago. Today, I still watch it on television or on the video tape. It is truly a comedic classic not to be disregarded at all. It is truly funny, entertaining, and enlightening. If haven't seen it, you must for a good time. Great cast of actors and characters, I miss Roddy McDowall. I wished that Roddy got knighthood while he was alive. Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have been together what must be like an eternity in Hollywood or at least a few years. Edward Herrmann has a great supporting role as Joanna's husband and Katherine Helmond from "Who's the Boss?" plays Joanna's snobbish New Yorker mother. The story begins with rich Joanna wanting a closet for her shoes so she hires a local carpenter, Kurt Russell, who does not meet her criteria. She insults and mistreats him like an animal and refuses to pay him. When she falls overboard accidentally, she loses her memory. When Kurt's character finds out, he decides to bring her home and make her pay him back. The predictable event happens so watch and see and don't watch the butchered television version either.
