    13 “Overboard” movie remake (2018) totally reversed the roles

    In this SJW remake, the bad guy is the “rich white male” and the good guy is the “poor sacrificing woman.” When I read the synopsis, I wanted to hurl.

    Here you go:

    Kate Sullivan is a single mom of three daughters who works two jobs while studying to be a nurse. [I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many checkboxes ticked off for a movie character before. The only ones missing are “tranny”, “person of color”, and “lesbian.” Oh wait, also unchecked is “works with homeless immigrant babies.”- Dennis] She is assigned to clean carpets on a yacht owned by spoiled, arrogant playboy Leonardo 'Leo' Montenegro. Leo makes rude remarks towards Kate and fires her without pay when she refuses to bring him food. When Kate calls out his behavior, Leo pushes her off the boat along with her cleaning equipment. Meanwhile, in Mexico, Leo's sisters Magdalena and Sofia are tending to their ailing father. Furious when Leo is announced as his successor to run the family-owned company, Magda decides to visit him. That night, Leo slips off the yacht and falls into the ocean unnoticed. He wakes up on a beach with amnesia and no recollection of his identity. He wanders through town and eventually reaches the hospital. Magda finds him and leaves him there unclaimed after learning he has amnesia. She returns home and falsely reports that Leo has died. Sofia suspects Magda is lying..
    Freakin’ barf....

    You say "trigger-happy cowboy" as if it were a bad thing.

    "If they come a'huntin' me; they can consider themselves lucky if they*don't* find me!"

    No surrender; no retreat!

    Right, because we all know a woman can't be a millionaire let alone a billionaire... and a white male cannot be a single parent. SMH. That is essentially what they are saying.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    So true, but then she wouldn't be in the demeaning position of cleaning carpets on the side if she was studying to be a doctor.

    I know. It's a GIF, a small, well inside the limit size CIF of a fish flopping. I've tried every trick I can think of but it won't post.


    FINALLY!! It posted!

    Might be something you need to discuss with your 'computer guy'. The last time I went to try and make it post, it just seemed to be there...I did nothing. It's like it took a 'month of Sundays' to do it itself.

    I'm surprised she wasn't a "poor hispanic migrant woman". Whites basically don't get "cleaning" jobs anymore in this country.

    I would agree with the possible exception of "Heaven Can Wait" remake by Warren Beatty I thought was great.

    The original movie had lots of scenes shot in Fort Bragg Calfornia down on the wharf. Old turf for me, as my grandmother had the Casa Del Noyo at the end of the road going to the fisheries and restaurants. My parents home is visible a number of times, oh the memories when I watch that movie.

    Side bar, the movie "The Russians are coming" was also shot in the area and many of the stars and crew stayed at the Casa. Use to be big on Salmon fishing and timber, Redwood country....then the environmentalists went to work and put an end to the sawmill and many fisherman.

    I'll watch the new movie, and barf along with the rest of you all conservatives.

    That movie has already been made, I forget the title of it though.
