Before the McConaughssance, came the collapse and few films did more than to progress the fall than this poorly received turkey. Cashing in on the chemistry between Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson, Fool’s Gold is a half rom com, half action adventure that aims to recapture the spirit of classics like Romancing The Stone. Unfortunately, it didn’t convince audiences particularly well, and infuriated critics. Just perfect for us to investigate if this is a low point in Matt’s illustrious career. But did Ray Winstone accept this role for a Caribbean holiday? Should Malcolm Jamal-Warner aka Theo Huxtable be in more films? And should the accent coach be struck off for their contribution to this film?
From the other side of the world Sam recommends a rom com that has a considerably better reputation in this weeks Our Man in Japan segment.
Join us as we sit on the beach drinking Red Stripe to see if this romantic adventure is a hidden treasure or a bag of rubbish left on the beach.
