Overboard (16-Dec-1987)

Director: Garry Marshall

Writer: Leslie Dixon

Music by: Alan Silvestri

Producers: Alexandra Rose; Anthea Sylbert

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, Amnesia

The husband of a not-very-nice heiress understandably abandons her after she falls overboard their luxury yacht and develops amnesia; a carpenter with whom she had earlier unsatisfactory dealings, deciding that he and his four children could use some help around the house, identifies her as his missing wife "Annie." Great chemistry between Russell and Hawn in this clever and timeless comedy, which despite its predictability man find an enormous guilty pleasure.
