In this gender-swapped remake of the 1987 Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell rom-com of the same name, spoiled Mexican hier Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez) hires single mother Kate (Anna Faris) to clean his yacht but unjustly fires her. When he falls off his boat and wakes up with amnesia, Kate’s boss (Eva Longoria) convinces her to pretend to be Leonardo’s wife to get some payback. Swoosie Kurtz and John Hannah co-star. Directed by Bob Fisher and Rob Greenberg.~Kaitlin Elise Miller

Well, I saw both movies and have to say the second overboard was just as entertaining as the first-contrary to the negative reviews. What made it humorous was the inclusion of a Spanish twist throughout the movie. Most of the humor was not as funny in English as how it was received in Spanish. The big difference was the plot reversal with Engenio Derbez playing the role of Goldie Hawn and the kids were girls not boys. I liked it.
I would recommend this to a friend

Saw this in theaters, still funny
Owned for 1.5 years when reviewed.
It isn't as memorable as the original, but it is still funny and entertaining.
