15 Popular Movies With Screwed Up Messages About Women

15. Overboard


Statistically this movie is always playing somewhere on cable, a not-great film more charming than it should be because of the strength of its leads, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Even though they are a delight, the movie itself is a misogynistic mess, a movie about making rich hos into housewives. Overboard thinks that there’s nothing a little domesticity can’t tame, and if you want to stick to a spoiled brat, you should definitely trick her into thinking she’s your wife. Stockholm Syndrome solves everything.
