Hawn stars as Joanna Stayton, a snooty heiress who summons carpenter Dean Proffitt (Russell) to her lavish yacht, where she wants an expanded closet constructed that will house her valuable wardrobe. When Dean fails to build the closet out of cedar, Joanna haughtily dismisses him without payment. Later, Joanna falls overboard and is struck by another boat, causing amnesia. Seeing her story on the news, Dean constructs an elaborate scheme to pretend that Joanna is his wife, Annie. Soon, the former rich snob is cleaning Dean's home and babysitting his four rambunctious boys. Although at first she's a disaster, "Annie" grows into her role and begins to love being a mom and middle-class wife. When her real husband, Grant (Edward Herrmann), comes looking for her, however, her memory is jogged, and she must decide between a life of privileged ease and a life of happy housework. Overboard was the feature-film debut of writer Leslie Dixon, the granddaughter of famed photographer Dorothea Lange. Karl Williams, RoviRead Less

Goldie Hawn gives a marvelous performance as a bitchy, spoiled and unhappy rich girl who falls off her yacht, loses her memory, and is taken in by a local carpenter, who pretends she is his wife and the mother of his children. Kurt Russel is a convincing working guy, and it's also a treat to see a younger Edward Herrmann, who I only knew through Gilmore Girls, playing Hawn's neurotic sailor husband. The film abounds in barrel laughs and broad humor, but the magic for me was seeing Hawn's character transform. Overboard is a good reminder that money isn't everything!
