Consensus: With little chemistry among the performers, humorless gags, and a predictable storyline, Fool's Gold fails on every level.

I succumbed to the very occasional charms of this fair, good-natured romcom adventure and left the screening in quite a good mood.

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.

Fool's Gold is so predictable that seeing the trailer is essentially the same as seeing the movie.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

It's not a complete power failure, but it's close.

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.

The physical spark between the two shaggy blondes that made How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days the perfect airplane movie is 20 fathoms under sea.

This movie feels very generic and very, very long; after it's over, you might need a little sunscreen for your brain.

The comedy, though, is broad and only mildly effective and the banter lacks edge and wit.

Of course there's nothing new or memorable here, but it's a fun romance adventure film.
