Synopsis


Fool's Gold
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days co-stars Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey re-team on the big screen for this adventurous tale about a treasure-hunting couple whose eight-year quest for the ultimate prize has left them flat broke and fresh out of gas. Ben "Finn" Finnegan (McConaughey) is a treasure hunter who has made it his mission in life to track down the Queen's Dowry -- a legendary collection of 40 chests filled with priceless treasure, and lost at sea in 1715. But in his single-minded quest to track down this sizable booty, Finn has sadly neglected his marriage to his loving wife Tess (Hudson). Tess has grown tired of the hunt, and now she's looking to start her life anew by going to work on the massive yacht of globetrotting billionaire Nigel Honeycutt (Donald Sutherland). But just as Tess begins to relish the freedom on her new, laid-back lifestyle, Finn uses his roughish charm to convince the adventurous baron and his debutante daughter Gemma (Alexis Dziena) that the elusive Spanish treasure is finally within reach. Of course no magnate in his right mind would reject the prospect of tracking down the most mythical treasure on the planet, and now as the hapless Tess is forced on yet another wild goose chase, her husband's former mentor Moe Fitch (Ray Winstone) and a greedy local gangster (Kevin Hart) up the stakes by joining in on the race. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I have to say that this movie is very very fun. I have always liked the movies that take an approach to adventure. This movie truly has everything for both genders. Women will love the story and McConaughey of course. The guys will love the movie as a whole. Lots of adventure and made me wanna go treasure hunting. Watch this one with your lady, you both will love it!

    Kate Remakes Goldie

    If you've seen films like Captain Ron and Overboard, go back and rewatch them. This is a formula film that offers nothing new. Find the Treasure. The bad guys are rappers. I guess that's new. But the reluctant damsel in distress. The inept guy. And a mountain of gold. All you need is a dragon to guard the treasure. And they almost give you one of those. Blow Hole!

    Another Date Movie

    This is another movie you should see on a date, the type of movie you watch together one time. There are some funny parts, but its the same type of movie you've seen before with a predicable outcome. Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey do a fair job acting but nothing award worthy. Its worth watching once, but nothing you need for your collection.

    I would highly recommend this movie as a MUST BUY... There has not been too many good comedy's out there for some time. This is deffinately one that has you laughing through out the movie. Matthew McConaughey has a great character in this one and Kate Hudson makes it even better. The two of them have a great chemesty together.

    For anyone who loved "How to lose a guy in 10 days," This is not as good. Some parts of the movie dragged. There was not so much an adventure as piped up to be. This is a good movie to watch if you want a happy ending to a love story and like to watch this great looking "movie" couple.

    Just Okay

    This movie simply wasn't as good as "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." The actors still had great chemistry, but the plot was a little far-fetched, and the movie was corny at times. I didn't mind watching it, but Fool's Gold definitely isn't going on my keeper's shelf.

    Disappointing

    Movie has a lot of potential with Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. Having starred in other movies together in the past, you would think the chemistry would be there. Unfortunately, its not. The movie is pretty disappointing even for not expecting much going in.

    The movie was fantastic. McConaughey and Hudson work unbelievably well together which only adds to the movie. The story was solid and really reminded you of growing up and wanting to search for treasure. Just a all around good movie. Recommend for teens and older.
