Overboard, movie review

This isn’t the first remake of a movie with a gender flip. Ghostbusters is the first to come to mind to do this recently. “Overboard” didn’t turn out great, but its a solid, okay. The story was forced at certain points, like the kid chasing the car as the dad drove away. But any story where you expect the main character to fall for the person who kidnapped them is going to need to “force” the plot a bit, cause let’s face it, that’s just not realistic.

The characters grow a little bit, but mostly comedy is the central focus of the film. I was laughing a bit more than most in the theater, but I’d like to think everyone had an enjoyable time. If you’re looking for a few good laughs, this movie will do the trick. But don’t expect anything epic.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
