Fool's Gold Reviews

    Gee, there's some real miserable people who review these films. Sure it's formulaic, but it's an entertaining, fun romp. If you want exceptional, romcoms are not the place to go. Good stuff

    Underrated movie! Way better than the rating they have it... definitely worth a watch!

    As usual in the films of this genre, the heroes have to fight against evil - here in the form of financial difficulties, competition and creditors - on their treasure hunt. Last but not least, the classic relationship tensions of the hero couple must not be missing. The plot is not new and imaginative, but therefore not necessarily bad. In the end, the good guys win and the bad guys take a bath. Predictable, but solid and time-tested. However, the film manages to captivate the viewer in a certain way through great shots, timeless slapstick and last but not least ironic but likeable character drawings. It is a treasure hunt paired with comedy.The goal is predictable, but therefore the plot is purposeful, which makes the film a stringent adventure. The music score is a pretty interesting mix out of different gernes, so if you like film scores, have a look (or hear?) at it! The film doesn't deserve an Oscar, but it's certainly enough entertainment for a cosy evening with drinks and popcorn.

    it is predictable but mildly amusing thanks to its cast.

    Quite funny and a good story idea but very very slow and a bit too silly in some places. Managed to see it to the end

    Con un cast d'eccezione e delle location da urlo, questa commedia poteva avere davvero tutto, e invece scade spesso nel banale anche laddove sarebbe stato necessario inserire qualche momento di tensione in più. Il vero punto forte sono le riprese e i paesaggi.

    Fools Gold is one of the most boringly unfunny films I have ever seen. McConaughey and Hudson were cute in How To Lose A Guy in Ten Days but this movie is dreadful.

    Another random movie. I didn't expect much and no surprise, it didn't deliver. It was okay at times, but seemed to hope you wouldn't notice the plot holes and thin character development by putting out scantily clad actors and actresses and corny jokes. It wasn't the worst movie I've watched recently, but not really worth most people's time.

    If I could give it less than half a star I would.
