Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I succumbed to the very occasional charms of this fair, good-natured romcom adventure and left the screening in quite a good mood."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"It's not a complete power failure, but it's close."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Both McConaughey and Hudson look less interested in the material than cashing their checks and taking in the Bahamas sun."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Yo-Ho-Ho hum."
‑ Kit Bowen,
"I Hated Hated Hated Hated Hated Hated Hated This Movie!!!!!!!!!"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Fool's Gold is so predictable that seeing the trailer is essentially the same as seeing the movie."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"This movie feels very generic and very, very long; after it's over, you might need a little sunscreen for your brain."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"Fool's Gold is a decently charming movie, not a bad couple of hours diversion (once anyway) especially if you come across it while channel surfing, but not much more."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"Just because these two pretty people flirted and pratfell well once, doesn't mean they can do it again--especially when they're trying to do it with such a clunker of a script on their hands."
‑ Heather Huntington,
"The film's final half hour does feature some decent action though, but by that point, you don't really care."
‑ JoBlo, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Not only do we not care about the lost treasure, their characters aren't developed enough for us to give a hoot, so nothing about this story strikes gold."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"So intricate, so convoluted and so full of various character names that it becomes impossible to follow."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The comedy, though, is broad and only mildly effective and the banter lacks edge and wit."
‑ John Hazelton, Screen International
"As fluffy and mindless as its promotional materials may have indicated..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...more silly than romantic, more frantic than comedic, and more busy than adventurous."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
