A woman struggling with insecurity wakes from a fall believing she is the most beautiful and capable woman on the planet. Her new confidence empowers her to live fearlessly, but what happens when she realizes her appearance never changed?
A true story of survival, as a young couple's chance encounter leads them first to love, and then on the adventure of a lifetime as they face one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.
When Magdalena first visits the hospital to pick up Leonardo, the doctor tells her that there's only been one case of amnesia in their small town: A blond girl in the mid-80s. He's obviously referring to Goldie Hawn's character in the original Overboard from 1987. The roles are reversed here and in that film it was the female lead who got amnesia. See more »
When Kate goes to pick up Leonardo at the hospital, she says "here is our marriage license", but hands him a marriage certificate. A marriage license is not a certificate of a marriage. A marriage license is what you get from city hall that allows you to get married, a marriage certificate is what the city/county gives you once you've gotten married and mail in the filled out marriage license.

The new Overboard remake is simply dreadful. Where the original was light and funny and endlessly quotable, the remake is flat, depressing, and basically comes off as a "Spanish 101 lesson for Gringos".
Anna Faris generally strikes me as fairly funny in her other work but even she can't right this sinking ship. Eugenio Derbez captures none of Goldie Hawn's hilarious, over-the-top pretentiousness, Swoosie Kurtz is an abomination in the insane mother role so superbly executed by Katherine Helmond in the original. John Hannah is his usual charming self as the beleaguered "Andrew" but he's given almost nothing to work with, whereas Roddy McDowell ( both acting and exec. producer in the original) steals many classic scenes.
The kids are dreadful. The rich relatives are dreadful. The poor friends, including Eva Longoria... dreadful.
Run, don't walk, away from this picture.
