A fun movie with great scenery.

If you do make your boyfriend watch this pointless movie, you totally owe them a guys' night just to get it out of their heads.

I love Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey.

Don't Listen to the fools that dislike this movie, the only reason they do not like it is likely bc it's not the typical form of movie they go for. With movies like Harry Potter, Transformers, Iron Man, Avengers, Battleship, etc., it is easy to overlook smaller movies like this. People are now accustomed to seeing big budget action/adventure films so movie like this are quickly dismissed. It is a pretty good movie, not excellent but worth watching.

Benjamin "Finn" Finnegan (Matthew McConaughey) is a beach bum with an interest in treasure hunts. He's also hardly responsible, which is why he sets his boat on fire and sinks it not too long after we meet him.

Tess Finnegan (Kate Hudson) has had enough. She's taken a job aboard millionaire Nigel Honeycutt's (Donald Sutherland) yacht. And she's divorcing Finn.

Finn's latest quest is the Queen's Dowry, a treasure lost almost 300 years ago. In fact, he's found a piece of it. Now all he needs is financial backing. His irresponsibility has left his last backer rather mad at him. So he decides to get Nigel's help, completely unaware that Nigel is Tess's new boss.

Unfortunately, the shipwreck is somewhere around the island owned by dangerous rapper Bigg Bunny (Kevin Hart). As in Finn's last investor. Can they find the treasure without Bigg getting his hands on it? Can Finn win Tess back in the process?

Let's be honest, this is mindless, predictable entertainment. Especially since the previews gave away many of the key scenes. But it is fun.

It's trying to be a action comedy. It had some laughs, but there weren't as many as I had hoped. The funniest scenes involved Nigel's daughter Gemma as played by Alexis Dziena. Anytime she was on screen, I was guaranteed a laugh. Most of the action in the film was played for laughs as well, and is over the top. Then again, what action movie isn't over the top? Even the exposition scene near the beginning that is key to understanding how Tess and Finn got started on this trail wasn't that great. I couldn't follow it, and I tried.

So why did I like it? Because of the characters. I really did care for all of them. Well, the good guys anyway.

Ok, so this isn't some sort of cinematic art or big special effects extravaganza. Why people are reviewing this negatively because of the two stars, makes no sense to me. Since when do people expect much from Matthew McConaughey or Kate Hudson? Kate was really good in Almost Famous, but other than that I haven't been blown away by her or Matthew for that matter, in fact, I can't even think of him ever not playing some dolt without his accent. This movie harkens back to something like Overboard with its chemistry of two stars who would seem like an odd pair from different walks of life. While Matthew is no Kurt Russell, I think Kate is better than her mother ever was. So these two have pretty good chemistry together and then you shoot this movie in the best parts of Australia with great actors like Ray Winstone and Kevin Hart and Donald Sutherland and make it an adventure film, then you've got something really good. The movie is paced well, shot well and it looks great on Blu-Ray. Poor supplemental features, but I bought this for the movie so I'm not too bummed about the lack of extras. If you like adventure films and video games, you'll probably like this. I am a big fan of the video game series Uncharted, this movie reminds me of that series only not as funny or dangerous, but this movie is still witty and adventurous. I like this movie a lot, get It on sale and then if you don't like it, you won't feel like you got ripped off.

I think a lot of people went into this movie expecting another lightweight comedy from this duo, but got a lot more. I went to see it with a female friend who loved "How to Lose a Guy", but isn't really into action movies. Well I loved it, and she not so much. Besides the entertaining storyline, the breathtaking scenery really steals the show. It's like going on a tropical vacation for 90 minutes, except you can drink the water. I don't think you can really qualify this as a chick flick, but it's earned a spot on my blu-ray shelf, and for a guy that's a lot.

Format: DVD
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Matthew McConaughey goes shirtless
2. Kate Hudson channels her mom
3. He's irresponsible
4. She's determined
5. They're divorced
6. They're going treasure hunting
7. You can guess the ending before watching the opening credits

In other words, there's nothing new about this light and ditzy treasure hunting romp that plays heavily on stereotyping and McConaughey's shirtless bod.

The legend behind the treasure is interesting enough. Forty chests of gold and jewels, destined to be a dowry fit for an eighteenth century queen, was lost without a trace during the hurricane season of 1715. Finn (McConaughey) and Tess (Hudson) had been searching for it for years, until an accidental discovery clues them in that they're finally on the right track.

With the exception of Donald Sutherland, the movie loses momentum whenever the supporting actors are on-screen and the burden of the caricaturized characters sink the movie even deeper than the plotline.

The action scenes were good, especially at the end, and although there is violence, most of it is off camera. A couple of swear words and a few naughty scenes make for a PG-13 movie that should be found guilty of breach of promise.
