The First Look At The "Overboard" Remake Has Convinced Us To Give The Reboot A Chance

- Page 1

The plot may be ridiculous, but Overboard is a gem of a movie from the 80s that we won't soon forget. I mean, even if we tried to, it would be impossible, because the fun film is getting the remake treatment.


Earlier this year, it was announced that 1987 movie, which starred Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, will be returning to the silver screen. The original story follows Kurt, a carpenter who takes in Hawn, a spoiled heiress who got amnesia after falling off her yacht, and convinces her that she was his wife. She even starts to help raise his kids, and of course, they eventually fall in love.

As for the remake, it will stay true to the amnesia story line, but there will be other major changes. For instance, it will be the man who forgets his past, not the woman.

Anna Faris, best known for her role in the Scary Movie franchise, and Eugenio Derbrez have signed on for the lead roles. Faris will play a working-class single mom, Kate, while Derbrez will portray Leonardo, a billionaire with amnesia. Other cast members include Eva Longoria, John Hannah, Emily Maddison, John Segarra, and Swoozie Kurtz.

Of course, amidst all the excitement we were a little apprehensive about the remake, but the first official photo from the movie has been released, and we're slowly warming up to the idea.

Are you ready to see it?

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.
