Fool's Gold

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: When a newly divorced couple finds themselves on the same billionaire's boat, they must deal with their still-raw emotions for each other, as they team up to find a Spanish treasure buried under the sea.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Matthew McConaughey, Kate Hudson, Donald Sutherland, Alexis Dziena, Ewen Bremner, Ray Winstone, Kevin Hart, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Adam LeFevre, Michael Mulheren

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. It is what it is, but what it is isn't half bad... for what it is.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: A little. But don't let that be your main reason for going.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: No, but I've never seen someone get hit in the face as much as McConaughey does in this film, so if you have any reason to dislike him, you will enjoy that. But be warned, he also heals ridiculously quickly... Guess they had to restore that cute little mug of his.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Movie most likely to make you want to go under-water treasure hunting?

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Does it really matter when we all know they did this one for the paycheck?

Q: How is the Directing?

A: The action scenes were well covered and easy to follow.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: After you're done suspending disbelief regarding the premise, it's a good idea not to try to follow the logic too closely as to who crashed the boat, where, and why. It's pretty much impossible to comprehend on first viewing (which is the grand total amount of times anyone is going to want to see this story), and you shouldn't have to feel stupid when you get confused by it. So I'm gonna give you a pass on this one, as I gave myself. Just remember to tell yourself that it's deliberately overcomplicated, because they don't want you to understand it, lest you should find holes in the logic.
