Anna Faris Is Hilarious in New ‘Overboard’ Remake Trailer
OK, so we were a tad nervous for the remake of the classic 1987 rom-com Overboard. But the first trailer just dropped today, and now we’re totally on board.
But (disclaimer!) if you’re a fan of the original film featuring a spoiled Goldie Hawn and a blue-collar Kurt Russell, then you should know that the roles are reversed in this adaptation. Despite our suspicions, the trailer is pretty dang fantastic.
In it, Kate (Anna Faris) is a struggling single mom who gets fired by an ungrateful yacht-owning millionaire, Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez). But when Leonardo gets amnesia from accidentally falling overboard, Kate’s friend Theresa (Eva Longoria) swoops in with the idea of a lifetime.
Sure enough, Kate tricks Leonardo into thinking he is married to her, the father of her two children and, well, poor. Oh, and she also convinces him that he works three jobs.
In the wise words of Longoria, “Aw, we want a fake husband.” Overboard hits theaters on April 20, 2018.
