Overboard (1987)

overboardBy Scott Goldfine

Goldie Hawn is delightful as a spoiled, rich debutante who develops amnesia after a fall. Kurt Russell is adequate as a carpenter who takes Hawn in and shows her how the other half lives.

Predictable, the ensuing situations do manage some funny and touching moments. “Overboard” succeeds as a light, romantic comedy. This Garry Marshall-directed entry also stars Katherine Helmond and Roddy McDowall. Rated PG.
