Annie/Joanna Meets Dean — Overboard
< 1 day ago
We’ve run into this situation a few times so far on this podcast, where we revisit a “classic” of the genre with great concern that what we’ll find is a movie that doesn’t quite hold up.
Whether it’s misogynistic or homophobic or a combination of things, it’s always hard to revisit a movie that you loved as a kid only to discover that, hey, maybe it’s kind of fucked up now that you’re an adult and know better.
Thankfully, despite some occasional icky-ness, we agree that Overboard mostly holds up. There are some parts that made Joey squirm, but in general the Russell/Hawn dynamic is so charming and the characters so likable that it’s hard not to enjoy it. Plus, there are just some damn good jokes.
