Overboard

May 4, 2018
Overboard is a rousing, energetic, funny, and at times, raunchy story, which features a nice life lesson—the things that make a person rich are not lots of money, but the times shared with others.

Whats Your Number?

September 30, 2011
This example of a scene I watched in this film will tell you what it is basically about.

Of course, the [...]

Let's start with a couple of positives. Luke Wilson plays his role very earnestly in this film and does a great job acting.
