December 15, 2020
Making Nicolas Cage's National Treasure hunter seem like a rocket scientist in comparison, McConaughey's Ben seems to have trouble walking and talking at the same time.

No spark, no romance; just silly action, limp performances, and a dud of a payoff -- if, that is, you can stay awake.

Fool's Gold is a decently charming movie, not a bad couple of hours diversion (once anyway) especially if you come across it while channel surfing, but not much more.

The comedy, though, is broad and only mildly effective and the banter lacks edge and wit.

Just because these two pretty people flirted and pratfell well once, doesn't mean they can do it again--especially when they're trying to do it with such a clunker of a script on their hands.

The film's final half hour does feature some decent action though, but by that point, you don't really care.

...more silly than romantic, more frantic than comedic, and more busy than adventurous.

[T]he frequency with which people are shot or drowned wears away at any attempts the film makes to be frothy or screwball.
