Fool's Gold, a leaden action-adventure, stars the perennially shirtless Matthew McConaughey and the peculiarly mirthless Kate Hudson as a couple whose marriage, like the film, is in the doldrums.
But when Finn (McConaughey), whose chief interests are pirate booty and the sexual kind, discovers a long-buried treasure off a Bahamian reef, he rekindles his relationship with Tess (Hudson), scholar (!!) of Spanish history.
Finn's find does not rekindle the movie which is, to put it politely, all wet. Despite the presence of Donald Sutherland as a billionaire with a conveniently located yacht, a floating five-star hotel, if this movie were a treasure chest, its contents would be dross.
