Overboard [DVD] [1987]

  • Rating: PG
Garry Marshall's comedy Overboard comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. Subtitles are available in both of these languages as well. Supplemental materials include a trailer and a booklet featuring trivia and production notes. This is a solid disc, although the film itself is less than spectacular. Fans of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell will certainly want to give this DVD a look.

    Synopsis


    Overboard
    This screwball comedy casts real-life couple Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn in a film that finds the latter returning to her roots in a role reminiscent of Private Benjamin (1980). Hawn stars as Joanna Stayton, a snooty heiress who summons carpenter Dean Proffitt (Russell) to her lavish yacht, where she wants an expanded closet constructed that will house her valuable wardrobe. When Dean fails to build the closet out of cedar, Joanna haughtily dismisses him without payment. Later, Joanna falls overboard and is struck by another boat, causing amnesia. Seeing her story on the news, Dean constructs an elaborate scheme to pretend that Joanna is his wife, Annie. Soon, the former rich snob is cleaning Dean's home and babysitting his four rambunctious boys. Although at first she's a disaster, "Annie" grows into her role and begins to love being a mom and middle-class wife. When her real husband, Grant (Edward Herrmann), comes looking for her, however, her memory is jogged, and she must decide between a life of privileged ease and a life of happy housework. Overboard was the feature-film debut of writer Leslie Dixon, the granddaughter of famed photographer Dorothea Lange. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      This is the first Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell movie that paired this adorable couple. Their relationship continues to this day. The plot is hysterical, the acting great and the humor original and non-stop. I had to replace my oft-viewed vhs tape with an almost indestructible dvd disc so I could continue to re-play and watch the fun of 2 actors enjoying their work and each other.

      Reese Witherspoon's favorite film is "Overboard". Don't believe me? Watch the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wiYuVA-ELjQ I know there is a remake with Anna Faris and that guy from "How to be a Latin Lover". I'll probably watch that version BUT I'm already partial to this version. You will be too. Very bare bones version is still worth buying. Great price too. Enjoy!

      LOVE THIS MOVIE but, THIS DVD IS THE WORST. Don't buy this copy of the movie. You will get a small square of a movie inside your TV screen. Also, the movie looks like it was copied from a VHS TAPE. I returned this DVD to 2 different stores because of this copy. The case has a red spiral with Goldie Hawn falling on the cover. Not the cover you see with both Goldie and Kirt's picture together on the cover.

      This movie is reminiscent of classic comedies of the 60's. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have amazing chemistry, but so many funny moments you will laugh out loud. Goldie learning how to be a homemaker is priceless, and she does the physical comedy so well. This movie flows continuously from beginning to end. It does not lag in any part. It is a keeper, and a good addition to any collection.

      I enjoyed this movie better the second time that the first time I watched it. My grandchildren thought it was hilarious and watched three additional times on the same day. We had great family fun and I'm sure we will watch it again with other family and our friends.

      It's an oldie but goody. It's funny there are children in it but it's for adults if kids are watched some explanations will be required. I purchased it because my other copy got scratched. this is one of my fave Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn movies that I watch once a year he's also pretty funny in Captain Ron.

      Hard to believe amnesia would cause a million heitess to forget money. But that is the plot. Will love coquet all? Will Goldie live the rest of her life with Kurt "Snakes" Russel? We all know the answer " Snake we thought you Dead" . I hear alot of that. Same plot different ending and more entertaining.

      Best Buy is an excellent store. From the time of purchase to delivery and installation of a dryer, I was more than pleased. I went through a nightmare with Sears on the delivery of the same dryer. It was so bad, I cancelled the order and re-purchased the dryer at Best Buy. No problems.
