I can't believe there's not a thread for this already (If there is it didn't come up when I searched for it). Anyone else see it? I just saw it and LOVED it!

Just saw it and found it amusing, at best.

It was enjoyable, but pretty darned shallow and not all that funny. LIked the diving scenes, but kept wondering about the obvious product placement.

haven't seen it, but i might when it goes to the 3 dollar theatre.

i'll see most movies if they a) have scuba in them, or b) have japan in them. i'm drawn to tokyo for some reason..

also, fool's gold has 'message in a bottle' in the trailer, so that's a plus!

interesting movie. I do wonder how Fin survived. Honestly... he had an anchor chained to his ankles and was dragged behind a power boat and then sank to the bottom and still had enough air to hop with the anchor and get to the gun and shoot the chain and miss his feet. what a man. Chuck Norris would be proud of him!! I will admit I am a sucker for underwater footage. Oh the guy being blasted out of the blow hole was carefully done (no body parts were wasted in the filming of this section). Big Bunny almost puking was a nice touch.

I heard that it was one that you have to be paid to watch. I was going to see it, but it has horrible reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. I'll wait until it's on Blue-Ray and rent it. That way I don't feel totally ripped off.

I just read the reviews and decided to not pay to watch. I might pick it up later when on DVD.

Fin did a very quick accent in the first scene or so.
way faster then the new 30 ft per min or even the old 60 ft per min.
he just started finning up towards the surface...hard
lol
otherwise it was a great movie.

I thought it was worth the price of admission-Good film, but a lot of the funny parts were in the trailers.

Oh so what if it was a bit over the top?? So are Dirk Pitt and James Bond, but that's why we go to movies in the first place - to have FUN and be entertained! :D

Although I cannot wait to see it, I may wait for the DVD too. Any thoughts on when it'll be out?

I saw it this past weekend and thought it was a pretty good movie. I was in best buy and saw scuba scenes on this HUGE tv they had. Of course I had to stop and check it out. When I found out what the name of the movie was I convinced the girlfriend that we just HAD to go see it. I am just waiting on it to come out on DVD now.

I saw it on Friday night! I thought it was very cute & entertaining. And let's face it....Matthew is in it. *swoons* Don't worry boys Kate Hudson is some pretty good eye candy for you too. The diving scenes were cool although I was a little nervous for their safety a couple of times. I caught myself holding my breath and had to remind myself that it was a movie and their lungs are not going to explode. :)

I have heard the other girl in the movie is nice to look at as well! I think her name is Alexis Dziena... :smiley36:

This (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/10009167-fools_gold/) is why. I find that Rotten Tomatoes is usually right on the money.

That girl is cute too, but she looks like a kid with too much makeup in my opinion. She may not be as young as she looks though.

OK, I can see your point. So let me ask you this... Did you like Into the Blue (with Jessica Alba)? It only had a 21%, and I really liked it (mostly due to Jessica). However, I also liked it because of the scuba/beach/treasure hunting theme... I am certainly not trying to talk you into liking a movie neither of us has seen, I am just saying it might be good for the scuba theme alone.
But with all that said, I am still waiting on the video. :)

Haven't seen the blue, but might check it out on your recommendation. Thanks.

As an aside, The wife and I are going to see No Country For Old Men tonight. Can't wait.

x's two. I love Into the Blue just because of it was 90% diving and blue water.

The fiance took me to see Fool's Gold and while it was pretty average and corny, it wasn't too bad. I did like the diving scenes and the few one liners in the whole movie.

Of course them pawning off Australia as Key West was amusing

I liked it. It was funny. And the girl was HOTTT!!!! Wish I could find someone just like her. Athough I thought the plane was going to flip more than it did. But it was a good move.

I thought it was an okay movie, but I am a bit of a sucker for any movie with water in it. I felt fairly ripped off seeing it in the theater though. With the prices they charge, you'd think you were actually flying somewhere tropical or something.

i've heard from a bunch of people that the movie is pretty terrible. i think i'll wait for dvd =)
