Overboard surrounds a single mom named Kate (Anna Faris) who is struggling to become a nurse and is working multiple jobs. She meets Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez) a billionaire who has never worked a day in his life. One day Leonardo gets amnesia and Kate convinces him that he is her husband so that he can help with chores, work, and babysitting while she does what she can to get her dream job.
The movie starts off pretty awful. It’s cliched with tired tropes seen in comedies and in rich characters. But it does get better as it goes along. Faris and Derbez do have a good chemistry, but I never really bought their romance. And the comedy in this film never hit for me.
