One of the most underrated comedies you'l find. Great chemistry between Goldie and Kurt Russell. Is the ending predictable? Absolutely. So if you're looking for spine-tingling, tension-filled, deep-thought-provoking comedy, watch something else. But if you want a fun ride watching two actors plying their comedic talents, this one fits the bill.

Surprisingly good revisitation of the screwball romantic comedy in which real life couple Hawn and Russell spark off each other pretty well. A guilty pleasure.

Quite a funny film. Hawn is great as the self-absorbed, snooty rich lady and as the mother of four out-of-control boys. The chemistry between Hawn and Russell is believable and makes for a nice romance.

One of the many forgettable 80s comedies that uses a fantastic set up (class warfare, amnesia, budding romance) to play for a few laughs and leads to a predictable ending.

The rich and the poor

While I haven't seen this movie in years I remember it quite clearly. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were a good match up for this movie. This was at the time when Goldie Hawn still looked really good (time hasn't done very well for her these days), and Kurt Russell could get in any movie he wanted. The plot of the movie was pretty over the top, Joanna Stayton (Hawn) was a woman who was married to a very rich man, she was a trophy wife, and she got whatever she wanted. Dean Profitt (Russell) was a contracted carpenter that was doing hired to build a closet on her yacht. She complained that it wasn't what she wanted and refused to pay, then she sailed off leaving him with nothing. Shortly after Russell sees a news report that a woman was found in the water with no ID and no memory of who she...
