[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.
April 18, 2008
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.
April 18, 2008
Like Tess and Finn, the makers of Fool's Gold are motivated by lucre, not love.
April 18, 2008
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.

Fool's Gold is so predictable that seeing the trailer is essentially the same as seeing the movie.

The physical spark between the two shaggy blondes that made How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days the perfect airplane movie is 20 fathoms under sea.

Not only do we not care about the lost treasure, their characters aren't developed enough for us to give a hoot, so nothing about this story strikes gold.
February 8, 2008
It's not a complete power failure, but it's close.
February 8, 2008
This movie feels very generic and very, very long; after it's over, you might need a little sunscreen for your brain.
February 8, 2008
So intricate, so convoluted and so full of various character names that it becomes impossible to follow.
February 8, 2008
The movie winds up as a lot of pretty people sitting around a movie set waiting for a director and writers to strike comic or romantic gold. At least their tans were 24 karat.
February 8, 2008
At least costume designer Ngila Dickson didn't have to work too hard on McConaughey's wardrobe.
February 8, 2008
Nothing about the movie is memorable, unless you happen to be McConaughey's undoubtedly proud personal trainer.
February 8, 2008
Fool's Gold isn't so much a film as an opportunity to pay homage to Matthew McConaughey's impressive physique.
February 8, 2008
Anything can happen -- anything except anything remotely entertaining.
February 8, 2008
A semi-adventure and even less of a romantic comedy, only pretends to whip up excitement.
February 8, 2008
You might even forget you're watching a movie and think you're having flashbacks to Us Weekly.
