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.

The players are all poorly constructed stereotypes of cooler characters that many will remember from better movies.

While the latest McConaughey/Hudson pairing is far from worthless, you'd have to be a fool to find much gold in this tedious and lifeless cinematic outing.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
