Are you kidding me? A remake of Overboard? Is Hollywood really that desperate? I guess so, and they're hoping that Jennifer Lopez will help lead the way on this one.
Jennifer Lopez for Overboard
You may remember the 1987 movie, which starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn and was directed by Garry Marshall, centered on a snooty, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter. When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her she is his wife, thereby getting a free housekeeper for his four boys.
Lopez will probably replace "snooty" with "bitchy," but whatever.
Adam Cooper, Leslie Di and Bill Collage penned the script. What are the odds that this film is as good as the original? I give 50-1 that it's half as good.
