Overboard (0/1 Hats)


Kelvin Says Hats On:

Recently saw “Overboard” – Oh, Ship. Conclusion: 3/10. Setting aside all the problematic aspects of the premise of this movie – making someone believe they’re your spouse out of revenge so you can essentially make them do a bunch of unpaid labor – the movie still doesn’t work on its own terms. It’s not for a lack of effort though, because try this movie does. The leads, Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez, have enough chemistry together, but the amount of silliness and absurdity they had to overcome to keep me in this movie was not something even the most formidable duo could accomplish. There is a flair to the movie and a perceptible amount of charm, but the writing is otherwise so inane and hammy that it’s hard to keep with anything that’s fun. What’s more, I would say the movie’s runtime is roughly 20 minutes too long, sitting at a swollen 112 minutes. There might be a decent movie in here somewhere, but it nosedives into the deep end from the start. #IAmNesia #TieTheYacht #CleanGirls #AintTheresa #LeonardoDeBitchy
