Joanna Slayton is very rich and very spoiled. When she falls overboard from her yacht in the harbor of a small Oregon town she develops amnesia. She’s taken in by Dean Profitt, a local carpenter she’s previously maligned.

The premise is ridiculous as hell, but 80s cheese combined with the chemistry between Hawn and Russell (my favorite real life couple ever!) is irresistible. If I believed in guilty pleasure films, this would be it, but now I just shamelessly enjoy the weirdness.
I have a soft spot for lighthearted romantic movies. The movie is quite silly but it has it's heart on it's sleeve. The natural chemistry between Kurt Russel and Goldie Hawn really helps. This movie gives me a mushy feeling.
