Starring: Anna Faris, Eugenio Derbez, Eva Longoria, John Hannah, Swoosie Kurtz
Romantic comedy remake written and directed by Bob Fisher and Rob Greenberg. The story focuses on selfish spoiled playboy from a wealthy Mexican family, Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez), and Kate (Anna Faris), a working class single mom of three hired to clean Leonardo’s luxury yacht. After unjustly firing Kate and refusing to pay her, Leonardo falls overboard when partying too hard and wakes up on the Oregon coast with amnesia.
Kate shows up at the hospital and, to get payback, convinces Leonardo he is her husband and puts him to work, for the first time in his life. At first miserable and inept, Leonardo slowly settles in. Eventually he earns the respect of his new “family” and co-workers. But, with Leonardo’s billionaire family hot on their trail and the possibility of his memory returning at any moment, will their new family last or will Leonardo finally put the clues together and leave them for good?
Kate: Why am I even trying to be a nurse? I’m going to be delivering pizzas and cleaning carpets for the rest of my life.
Leonardo: [to Kate] You’re very attractive for a carpet cleaning lady. Although you maybe could do something with your hair. Yeah. No, that’s not it. It’s your face. Yeah.
Leonardo: Could you be a doll and get me a little snack?
Kate: You know I was just hired to do your carpets, right?
Leonardo: You’re fired.
Kate: I bet you haven’t worked a single day in your entire self-absorbed life. Just pay me and I’ll be on my way.
[as Leonardo throws her carpet cleaner overboard and into the water]
Kate: No! My equipment!
Kate: He is the devil. I owe the cleaning company three thousand bucks for a new machine and they fired me!
Kate: Rich people who get away with everything.
Leonardo: I don’t know what day it is. I don’t even know my own name!
Jason: Amnesia in our little town.
[she sees the story on Leonardo losing his memory after going overboard]
Kate: That’s him.
Theresa: I have an idea that is poetic in its justice.
[to the Nurse; referring to Leonardo]
Kate: I’m here to pick up my husband.
Leonardo: You’re really my wife?
Kate: For better or worse, baby.
Leonardo: I’m poor?
Emily, Molly: Daddy!
Leonardo: How come they don’t look like me?
Kate: We had to use a sperm donor.
Leonardo: I’m sterile?
Kate: You’re getting picked up for work bright and early.
Leonardo: I work?
Kate: Three jobs!
Leonardo: [to Kate] What do I do for a living?
Theresa: [to Kate] Oh, I want a fake husband.
Leonardo: I’m pretty sure I’ve never worked construction. I might be more suited for light office work.
Bobby: I’ll go easy on you.
Kate: Hi, honey. How was your first day?
[Leonardo collapses on the coach in exhaustion and starts mumbling]
Olivia: Do we need to take him to the hospital?
Emily: Why does he only do your chores?
Kate: He’s not babysitting!
Olivia: Because you think he’s a pervert?
Kate: Of course not.
Molly: What’s a pervert?
Molly: Then can I have one?
Leonardo: I’m going to try a little harder. Maybe I’ll surprise myself.
Kate: Honey, how did you learn to ride without training wheels?
Molly: Dad taught me.
Kate: He had paid his debt, I have tortured him long enough.
Bobby: You’re telling a ditch digger he’s a billionaire. I’m pretty sure he’s going to be okay with it.
Olivia: I like having a dad around. We want to keep him.
Theresa: [to Kate] You guys are good together.
Kate: I love having a fake husband.
Theresa: Maybe next time I ask you to commit a crime you won’t fight me on it.
Rich Client: Can I get you to haul the dirt on the other side of the house?
Jason: No speak English.
Rich Client: Sorry, I will talk to Bobby.
Jason: Si, Bobby
[the rich client turns and walks off; to Leonardo in perfect English]
Jason: I love doing that.
