    omg…Dominic and i were just discussing this movie yesterday and all things Hawn!

    Oh my gosh. It’s even funnier when you freeze it and can really see the details. Peanut butter. M&Ms. Hostess cupcakes torn in half. Is that mayonaise or marshmallow fluff? It doesn’t matter. Neither one’s a nutritious or appetizing combination. Then add Goldie’s harrowed genius…it’s one of the most perfect three minutes of comedy ever. Thanks for the laugh.

    I love the moment in the movie where she has been banished to the couch and the rain drips thru the ceiling, and she lies there, in despair, deep in thought, and she says out loud to herself:

    “I’m a short … fat …….. slut.”

    Fade to black.

    Hahahaha! I love how great she was as the megabitch in the first part of it, too. Those ridiculous outfits she wore and the way she carried herself like a pompous, spoiled heiress was fantastic. And the way Kurt Russell just got off on how much he was torturing her! He was great.

    It’s been too long since I’ve seen this. I have to go get a copy.

  5. red says:

    Yes! She is such a snot in the beginning!

    And she’s such a good actress that at the end – after doing shots in the kitchen of the yacht with the staff – she realizes how much she has hurt the butler in the past (played by malcolm McDowell) – and her eyes fill with tears and she asks for forgiveness. It’s not over played or … actor-ish – it seems totally real.

    I also love when she cracks open the beer in front of her horrified mother, takes a big swig, and then says to herself, “Mmm, good stuff …” before she realizes how everyone is staring at her in horror.


    I just watched it again last night and had a blast!!

  6. red says:

    Oops – I mean Roddy McDowell!!

  7. Emily says:

    What about Katherine Helmond as her mother? I can barely keep a straight face watching her in this movie.

  8. red says:

    hahahahaha I know! She has like 2 scenes and she’s hysterical. I love how horrified she gets when her daughter dares to try to offer the platter of appetizers to her guests. “I didn’t raise you to be a waitress!” she gasps.

    Mitchell – Goldie Hawn is so overdue for a big ol’ comeback. She’s still a movie star, a leading lady … I want her to be in some slamdunk project, like, YESTERDAY!!

  10. Emily says:

    “Joanna, what motivated you to pick up the tray and carry it across the room?”

    “I thought…they might be hungry.”


    Then the psychologist dude ponders this like it’s the most profound insight into the human mind ever. And the looks on their faces when she says she’d like a beer…

  11. red says:

    Yes! That poor psychologist who is basically on retainer for the entire nutso family.

    My favorite line in the movie is when one of the kids tells Kurt Russell after Hawn being alone with the kids all day “All she says is ‘ba buh ba buh ba buh ba'”! LOL

  13. mitchell says:

    i love that Over board is being discussed..i thought i was alone in my love for this movie…ill watch it whenever it”s on! “let’s go get our Mom!”..tears!!!!!

  14. red says:

    De – hahahahahahahaha I love that, too!!!

    buh buh buh buh buh buh

    Oh man.

  15. red says:

    Oh and how even after Kurt Russell tells her his son’s name is Travis- she still calls him Roy.


    “Roy!” she calls out.

    I also ADORE when she burns her hand and the twins race back and spray fire extinguishers at her. It is such overkill. And she just sits there, still, covered in white foam, devastated.

    Sorry. The woman is a brilliant comedienne.

  16. Emily says:



    It had to be done, folks.

  17. red says:

    I love when he first tells her the story and she gets prematurely romantic about it: “Oh, I love this story!!” – and then he breaks the news to her: “They both drowned” and you watch her crumble and she says, “This is a terrible story!”
