overboard (US movie 1987)


Overboard is a movie starring Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell that was released in the fall of 1987. It was directed by Garry Marshall.
synopsis :Joanna Stayton (Goldie Hawn) is the pampered wife of pretentious socialite Grant Stayton III (Edward Herrmann). When their yacht gets stuck in Elk Cove for repairs, Joanna employs carpenter Dean Proffitt (Kurt Russell) to improve her closet space. However, when Dean asks to be paid, he's blatantly turned down by Joanna, claiming that the closet is not up to her standards. So when Joanna falls overboard and develops amnesia, Dean takes advantage of the situation and, in a stroke of retributive genius, tells her that she's his wife and the mother of his four unruly children. Joanna, now believing that her name is Annie, struggles to become a housewife and mother for the first time. Soon, Joanna adapts to her new life and she begins to fall in love with Dean and the children; she accepts her life as the woman of the house. Eventually, her memories return to her and she leaves Dean to rejoin Grant and her "life of privilege". However, Joanna is no longer the woman she once was and she longs for her former life with Dean and the children. Joanna leaves Grant and, after a grandiose gesture made by the Proffitts, she lives happily ever after with Dean and the children, only now on her yacht, instead of Dean's shack.click here for more info
