Jennifer Lopez and her butt to star in Overboard remake

Mar. 19, 2010by: George Merchan
OVERBOARD, one of those perennial 1980s comedies, is one I've also never seen. But for whatever reason, every household in my family had it in their VHS cabinets. And whenever I saw Kurt Russell's mug, I always wondered, "Why isn't this BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA?! Where is BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA?! I WANNA WATCH BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA AGAIN!"

Sadly, I still react this way.

All that said, I can't tell you if a proposed remake of the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn boat comedy is a good thing or some sort of travesty to throw your arms up at. According to THR, the original film directed by Garry Marshall, "centered on a snooty, spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a local, morally challenged carpenter. When she wakes up with amnesia, he convinces her she is his wife, thereby getting a free housekeeper for his four boys."

Jennifer Lopez and her ample posterior are in talks to fill the Goldie Hawn role. No word on who the dude would be, but I'll leave that bit of casting speculation up to you guys.

Lopez can next be seen in the fairly atrocious-looking THE BACK-UP PLAN on April 16th.
Extra Tidbit: You could rest a pitcher of beer on that butt.

That's so funny

I was thinkin McConaughey all the way too....So if he's not available, then the poor man's McConaughey Josh Lucas...Woody Harrelson would be interesting...Either way, it'll probably be dumb.

When in the holy fuck are they going to get around to remaking Jaws?

I know it's coming. You know it's coming. Yet they keep circling it like virgins in a whorehouse.

If not McConaughey, then definitely Gerard Butler. Either way, it is to be avoided like the plague...

sad day

Loved the Russell/Hawn version, I'm pretty sure Lopez will put the Gigli touch on this and f**k it up. Geez what's up with the photo shop on that a$$?

No no no no no no

Overboard is a classic in my house. It is a ritual every time we watch it. This is by far the worse news I've heard in the longest time.

They would make more money if they just rereleased the original.

NO!

And yes, it is a perennial 80s movie. It gets shown time and again on tv stations all over the world. I really like the original and I'm not afraid to admit it! What Kurt gets away with in that film is just plain wrong in so many ways! Great fun.

Thumbs down for labeling the original Overboard a "perennial" 80's movie. Weird Science? Yes. Innerspace? yes. Overboard? not by a longshot.

research

first.....If you are going to write an article about a movie at least have the Balls to watch the damn thing! Second...This idea blows chunks, I agree with some remakes(reboots)but this is reaching far too deep.

riiight. You do understand how this site works right? It's not like these guys see the news and get to wait a few days to report on it. The writers here have their time of the day that they are on and they need to report on the stories that break when they're working. So explain to me how he could've gone out and watched the movie before posting this article?

Noooooo!

Oh my god...and you all can chuck popcorn at me for this, but I LOVED the original "Overboard". The chemistry between Kurt and Goldie is so cute and funny. And it's just a simple, stupid little movie. Why does it rise to the level of remake? I thought something this simple and beloved would fly under the radar.

Oh, and just for the record, Goldie Hawn shows off HER sweet (non photoshopped) ass in Overboard and it is spectacular.

Drex I agree with you. I remember seeing the original when I was younger and it was exactly as you described it. Not a bad waste of 90 minutes in my opinion.

"She may not have tits, but she's got a nice ass."

I just wanna know if she'll sport the g-string..?..
