Both McConaughey and Hudson look less interested in the material than cashing their checks and taking in the Bahamas sun.

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.

Yo-Ho-Ho hum.

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.

As fluffy and mindless as its promotional materials may have indicated...

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.

Surprisingly enjoyable.

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

Matthew McConaughey, whose continuing Hollywood career deserves a separate chapter in any future book by Richard Dawkins on the non-existence of God, is reunited for this romcom caper with Kate Hudson, herself uncompromisingly abysmal in everything.

Times (UK)

A ghastly romantic comedy about a race to find a 17th-century Spanish wreck full of treasure. The film is completely dead behind the eyes.

No amount of gratuitous McConaughey ab-flashing (he never stops) or the parading of Kate Hudson in a weeny bikini can scrape this one off the sea bed. Plankton would be insulted.

Like Tess and Finn, the makers of Fool's Gold are motivated by lucre, not love.

To inject drama, the anaemic plot contorts to spin danger out of Finn's debt to an island owning gangsta rapper (Kevin Hart), and his rivalry with his mentor.

I succumbed to the very occasional charms of this fair, good-natured romcom adventure and left the screening in quite a good mood.

Absolute tosh. A ridiculous, unerringly tedious plot is weighed down by listless performances from a cast who clearly wished they were somewhere else, despite the sumptuous locations.

Never do we believe that these two might actually be capable of hooking up off-screen, and this romantic flatness kills your appetite to keep watching.
