Critic's Corner - Overboard

Starring: Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez, and Eva Longoria

Rated: PG-13 Runtime: 112 min

When a nursing student finds out that a self absorbed party hound has gone unclaimed after washing up on a beach with amnesia she seizes the opportunity to get help with her life and revenge at the same time.

The plot is a bit clunky with a few forced scenes that push things along. However there is enough humor and character growth to make up for it. The acting is good and the production value is on par with the genre.

Overboard, earns three out of five, Wheelbarrow Pushing Monkeys. There is a heart to this film that makes it worth seeing on the big screen or at least not a waste of money on Discount Tuesday at the local movie house.
