Goldie Hawn is one of the MOST SUPREME GODDESSES of all time!! Especially in the movie Overboard . It is about a rich SUPLADA (new Tagalog word I learned from my mom meaning SNOB) who falls off her cruise ship and develops amnesia. A sexy carpenter (played by Goldie’s real life mangs Kurt Russell) who she stiffed earlier by not paying for a badass shoe closet then seeks revenge by making her believe she is his baby momma.
Since Goldie’s character aka Joanna Stayton spends most of the movie believing she is the average Annie, the glam outfits are few and far between, but even though they are minimal they leave a lasting impression on my fashion boner.
I don’t care if embellished shoulders came and went in two twists of a smurf’s nipple…they will forever put a sparkle in my eye when I watch Overboard.
If certain ~popstars of today~ wore these outfits, everyone would be all OMG LOOK AT THAT WOW SO WILD pero this was just typical resortwear in the glamourous life of Mrs. Joanna Stayton.
’87 was a good year.
Probably the best screencap of my screencapping life so far
However, the highest level of 80’s excess in this film goes to Joanna’s mother, played by Katherine Helmond aka Mona from Who’s the Boss? !!!
A flash forward sequence of me in 30 years
Here is the aforementioned badass closet that Kurt’s character makes for her. You must watch it in motion.
PLE DEW NETFLIX OVERBOARD IMMEDIATELY. Nothing beats going to sleep to images of 80’s Kurt Russell dancing in your head…
PS. Wouldn’t Rory and I make a PERFECT bloggers remake of Overboard?? I THINK SO
