Review: Fool’s Gold

February 13, 2008  |  Movies, Reviews, Travel Log 08

Last Friday marked the day that “Fool’s Gold” marked it’s premiere at different movie theatres all around the States, and luckily for us, S and Dee had reserved us tickets to see it as a gift to Dee on her birthday.  At first I was quite reluctant about the movie since I don’t like either actor that much but I decided to give it a shot.  And I was not disappointed! I actually loved this movie quite alot, it’s got the right amount of comedy, romance, and adventure and I really would love to see it one more time.


“Fool’s Gold” basically tells the story of Ben “Finn” Finnegan, a good natured, immature, treasure obsessed hunter.  His obsession lies with finding the legendary 18th century Queen’s Dowry – 40 chests filled with exotic treasure that was lost at sea back in 1715.  His obsession led him to sink and destroy his marriage to Tess and his trusty boat.   Tess had started to rebuild her life and decided that divorcing Finn is the solution to all of that.  But things take an interesting turn when Finn stumbles upon the treasure.  The adventure then begins involving a billionaire named Nigel Honeycutt, his celbutante daughter, Gemma, and the friends and enemies of Finn.  It kept you on the edge of your seat at times and you couldn’t help but fall in love with the movie a little bit yourself.
