Overboard DVD


Real-life couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn star in this enjoyable 1987 comedy by Garry Marshall (Pretty Woman) about an imperious heiress (Hawn) who loses her memory after a boating accident and is identified as the wife of a handyman (Russell). Russell's character brings her "home" to his messy house and unruly kids and the laughs follow as the aristocratic Hawn tries fitting in. Marshall delivers the comic goods, the leads are entertaining (Russell needs to do more comedy) and the supporting cast is made up of happily familiar faces, including Roddy McDowall, Edward Herrmann, and Marshall favourite Hector Elizondo in an unbilled bit part. --Tom Keogh

    This is such a fantastic 80's film and a definite must-see.

    It stars a young Goldie Hawn who is vivacious and hilarious in this story about a rich girl (Hawn) getting amnesia soon after meeting and being rude to a local carpenter (Russell) from a small town. Realising his chance to get even with Hawn, Russell convinces Hawn that she is the mother to his four unruly boys and also his wife. Cue hilarious antics!

    This is a feel good film that will leave you smiling!
