Fool’s Gold

Rated 2.0

This is garbage. It’s pretty garbage inhabited by pretty people in pretty surroundings, but it’s still garbage. The box office juggernaut that is Kate Hudson combined with Sir Matthew of McConaughey gets a second go around after the lousy How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and their latest effort isn’t much of an improvement. McConaughey plays Benjamin, a crazy treasure hunter reluctantly getting a divorce from Tess (Hudson). He finds a plate shard he believes to be part of a tremendous long lost treasure, but he sinks his boat in the process. Can he find the treasure and keep his wife? Do you care? Part treasure hunt and part romantic comedy, the film has an uncomfortable feel to it, as if everybody involved didn’t really know what kind of film they were making. Donald Sutherland is awful in this movie, employing a terrible accent and looking embarrassed.
