The new film, which opens April 20, is a role reversal on the 1987 original. Goldie Hawn played a selfish heiress who got amnesia when she fell off her yacht, while Kurt Russell portrayed a carpenter who ultimately fell in love with her in the romantic comedy.
The footage shows Faris — a single mother struggling to make ends meet — picking up a carpet cleaning gig on the yacht of a millionaire, played by Derbez, who treats her abusively and tosses her rented cleaning equipment overboard. But then a storm sends him tumbling overboard and he loses his memory, opening the door for Faris and to persuade him that she’s his wife, the father of her children, and a financial provider holding down three jobs.

As revenge, Kate, along with the help of her friend, Theresa (Eva Longoria), decides to pose as his wife and fool him into thinking he's married to her and the father of her three children.
This is a very similar plot to that of the original Overboard, with Russell portraying
