What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden Has an infectious, childlike enthusiasm. But, for a film with so much underwater action, it really lacks depth...
Adam Nayman Andy Tennant’s film is ugly, lazy and charmless — as if a film starring the ever-brittle Kate Hudson could be expected to be charming.
James Berardinelli Overall, Fool's Gold is not unwatchable and the action-overloaded final 30 minutes passes quickly and easily. It's getting to that point that can be a chore. At best, Fool's Gold deserves a bronze.
Peter Travers It's early in the year, but I defy any 2008 comedy to be as stupid, slack and sexless as Fool's Gold. And I'm counting Paris Hilton's appalling The Hottie and the Nottie, which is marginally better.
Pretty faces and buff, glistening bods can only carry this pic so far. The result is that instead of discovering cinematic treasure, only a fool will find gold in this mossy, algae-covered wreck that quickly sinks not long after leaving its port of call.
Tomatometer Full of humorless gags, a predictable storyline and flat performances.
