Grant notices that "the boat's been turned around" when he sees land outside the port-side (left) window. If this were true, however, the land would be on the starboard (right) side of the yacht.

Each time this movie appears on cable television I cannot help but watch it. I've probably seen it about 5 times by now. It is not the best movie I've seen, but something about it is magnetic. Yes, the plot is as predictable as can be, but it is a good story. The central characters are likeable as well as some of the supporting players (especially Roddy McDowall as Goldie's long-suffering servant). It's a good movie if you're looking for a few laughs and to feel happy, because that is what Overboard generates.
