While this isn't by any means the turkey some have painted it as, this is far from a perfect movie. Nonetheless, Mathew Mahogany and Kate Hugsome are a charming enough pair with some convincing chemistry onscreen, in this treasure hunt caper. They play a couple having just concluded a divorce, but who find themselves bound together once more to complete a treasure hunt, with the help of Donald Sutherland's "rich-guy-with-nothing-better-to-do" and his daughter. What could possibly happen ...?
Well, while the plot point A leads to plot point B with ending `C' predictably reached, it's more the surrounding characters that threaten to sink the movie than the moderately engaging main characters or lazy plot. Just as you might find a smile lightening your face thanks to either the stars efforts or the scenery, Donald Sutherland overeggs his English accented billionaire shtick, and his daughter is ditzy beyond reason (or humour) and the movie constantly walks a thin borderline between amusing caper and unpleasant farce. And the bad guys? Thoroughly unfunny goons for the most part, who fail to be funny, threatening, or even remotely interesting. Even Ray Winstone looks like he was along just for the vacation.
On the other hand, the scenery (beyond Mathew's abs or Kate's curves, that is) is quite breathtaking.. you may well feel a subliminal urge to go on a diving vacation by the end of the movie.
Pretty and bland rather than brilliant or barnstorming, this is a fairly pain free movie to pass some time.. it never quite nails the right tone and is lacking in the actual laugh out loud humour stakes, but leave the brain in neutral, and don't expect to watch more than once, and it just about floats long enough to kill a couple of hours.

Benjamin Finnegan (Matthew McConaughey) in search a ship wreck with gold and other treasure alienates his wife Tess (Kate Hudson,) defaults on a loan from the local bad guy Bigg Bunny (Kevin Hart) and misplaces a boat.

Yet he finds a clue to the treasure and must placate Bigg Bunny, regain the appreciation of his wife, find a sugar daddy to finance his expedition and beat a rival to the claim. The sugar daddy turns out to be Nigel Honeycutt (Donald Sutherland). Nigel is on his own quest to regain if he ever had it the affection of his flibbertigibbet daughter Gemma (Alexis Dziena.)

Who will find the treasure (if there really is one)?
Will love or at least lust reappear to our forlorn treasure hunting couple?
Will daddy ever get the respect of this daughter?
Will we get board watching this formula movie that tries too hard?

I watched the Blu-ray version and even though it could not save the movie, they did a terrific job on the seascape and other visuals.

My goodness their are some moaners out there these days!
Looking at the above reviews, you would think this was a awful movie.

Fair play it isn't Cassablanca or Gone With The Wind. But it is still a very good lighthearted fun movie...

The acting is good, the storyline is excellent and the comedy is very good too.

If you want a serious movie, don't watch this, but for Gods sakes, don't take it as a serious movie and start spouting hate online about it!

Enjoy it for it's jokes, it's adventure and it's stunning scenery.

I liked it allot, and you might too!
