HERE's an IRRESTABLE INVITATION to an AUDIENCE: WANNA SPEND 100 MINUTES with CHARACTERS YOU WOULDN'T WASTE 10 MINUTES ON IN REAL LIFE -- SQUABBLING, MONEY-GRUBBING, ASS-GRABBING JERKS with ONLY TWO THINGS on THEIR MINDS??

BUT WE DIGRESS...BASICALLY, FOOL'S GOLD IS a PAINFULLY UN-ENTERTAINING "ROMANTIC ADVENTURE" --  an INADVERTENT REMAKE of KATE HUDSON's OWN MOTHER GOLDIE HAWN's 1987 DUD OVERBOARD -- and JUST AS MUCH of a PAIN in the ASS to SIT THROUGH...

FEEL FREE to AGREE, DISAGREE (or SIMPLY DISS) BELOW...

HUDSON: "See, this is where the script starts to go wrong -- Right here on Page 2..."

I liked "Sahara", but this will suck.

This looks like a dead on remake of Romancing the Stone which airs almost daily on one or another of the Turner networks. Once again, originality is no where to be found.

Will this be as BAD as Failure to Launch? now that was a weak, lame and shameless piece of CRAP! I hope this one at least is funny or ridiculous because even Sahara was at least entertaining. Matthew McConaguey is on a string of mess!

I hated Failure to Launch but I immensly enjoyed How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. I don't know, people seem to not enjoy sitcom comedy in movies....probably because sitcoms are for tv (movies like Monster-in-Law, Duplex, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, etc...). I look forward to this film because I enjoy the duo coming back together, even though it has bad reviews.

Yeah, Looks like another "Pay Check" of the week movie for both Kate and Matt, Got to keep up the lifestyle you know!

I actually think that this looks like a fun movie, though I agree that the two
main characters probably get annoying after a while. Plus it has Donald
Sutherland and Ray Winstone in what look like fun supporting roles, though
they may end up being the only good part of the movie.

"Come on, you know you're not going to hit me." WHACK.  No, it doesn't work.  You usually need some semblence of subtlety for this sort of story to work (Romancing the Stone did, and made the characters three dimensional as well), and it clearly has none of that.

I actually did pay to this awful piece of sh*t. Everything about it was terrible.
But a special RAZZIE needs to go to Alexis Dziena for Worst Supporting
Actress. This was possibly the worst acting I've ever seen on screen. This
bitch was f**king someone.

What a waste of good talent like Matthew McConaguey. Looked like an awful rehash of a number of good movies.

I just watched this movie from Netflix; it was ok, wasn't horrible, but wasn't
the best either, and I can see where people are coming from when they point
out the movie's flaws...

Damn this movie was AWFUL! Matt and Kate were awful, Donald Sutherland was miscast, and the b*tch who played his daughter DESERVES a Worst Supporting Actress win. For a film marketed as a light comedy, there was a large amount of blood. Matt shoots a man's ear off, Ray Winstone gets a harpoon to leg, explosions happen in close proximity to human beings, and when the main bad guy is stuck in a geyser, (SPOILER!) the geyser shoots a stream of blood and a flipper. To anyone that called "10,000 B.C." stupid needs to watch this and they will think that film was brilliant. This film defies multiple laws of physics. Guns at the bottom of the ocean work just fine (this gets worse when you remember Hollywood knows this doesn't work; the had jokes about wet clips not working in "Pirates Of The Carribean: At Word's End" and "Shoot'Em Up"), when Winstone gets the harpoon to the leg, with exception of a pissy look on his face, he just keeps going after the guy who shoot at him, Matt doesn't appear unfaced after getting launched up into the air by an explosion, and wouldn't body parts come out of the geyser as well? Nominees: Worst Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Screenplay, Screen Couple, and Rip-Off (of "The Deep", "National Treasure", "Romancing The Stone", and "Sahara").

Yeah, this movie was marketed a a comedy but it was actually an action/adventure. I was surprised by the huge amounts of blood and violence (compared to other PG-13 movies). But I thought the daughter was actually pretty funny...

This movie was so stupid. The jokes fell flat and not even the shot of a shirtless Matt M could save this stinker.

Any movie that depends on its stars running around shirtless or in bikinis is doomed. Just because it worked for "Baywatch", doesn't mean it works for major motion pictures.
