Overboard is a 2018 Comedy/Romance film starring Anna Faris, Eva Longoria and Eugenio Derbez. It is directed by Rob Greenberg (most known for Meet Dave, How I Met Your Mother and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs). A synopsis for this film via IMDB reads: “A spoiled, wealthy yacht owner is thrown overboard and becomes the target of revenge from his mistreated employee”.
I want to start off this review by saying that this film is a must see for all the fans of comedy and especially those of Anna Faris. Even Eugenio Derbez is funny, and at a certain point I felt sorry for the guy and the position he found himself in. Suffering from amnesia, he gets tricked into thinking that he is married to Anna Faris’s character, Kate and has three kids with her. Then that he has three different jobs (when he hasn’t worked a day in his life). When he wants to have sex, he is sent to sleep in a shed. Despite these facts, he falls in love with his fake wife and at a certain point he is put into a difficult position: to choose between love and money. As some other character from the film said it, this story was better than a mexican telenovela. It had a bit of everything.
This film was a lot of fun, as it was filled with heartfelt and genuinely funny moments. I loved the fact that this starred a lot of popular Mexican actors and showcased what they can do to a mainstream American audience. They were able to make me laugh in English and Spanish and I appreciated that their conversations were authentic and relatable to everyone that sees it. The chemistry between Faris and Derbez was undeniable, and along with the funny lines and situational jokes made the story flow well, turning my Saturday afternoon into an enjoyable one.
If I were to give a rating to this film it would be a 7 out of 10. It is perfect for the weekend and I can guarantee you 100 % that it will make you laugh.
