[6.25/10] Overboard (2018)

Overboard (2018)

Quick Review: It's by no means a successful remake, even if it puts its own ttwist on the 1987 classic, but judged merely by itself, "Overboard" never really falls overboard in terms of cheesiness and humor, as what starts off as a supposed to be silly spoiled-wealthy-latino-gets-a-payoff caper, very smoothly grows into a family comedy with huge heart that, while hardly laugh-out-loud funny, is heartfelt, sweet, and amusing, and works thanks to Faris and Derbez's ever charming chemistry.

I didn't think the first one was funny. I did like both leads though.

I don't remember it clearly, but this one I liked more than I expected to.
