Heaven help us, the '80s classic Overboard is being remade. What's more, Jennifer Lopez is in talks to star.
The original is one of my all-time faves—how can you not love a snotty Goldie Hawn losing her identity from a toss off the side of a yacht and then falling for the carpenter (Kurt Russell) who's duping her? Though I'm not exactly psyched to see them overhauling something that I think needs no improvement, remakes are par for the course in Hollywood. And Jennifer Lopez can easily go from spoiled to no-frills, so she's not the worst choice if a remake is happening.
But I'm ready to hear from you guys—is this news good or bad?
