Based on the preview, the film doesn't look like anything special. But what do a series of movie critics think about it?
- Fool's Gold offers small compensation - a listless romantic comedy that, almost out of desperation, turns a little more violent than necessary near the end. -- Variety
- An unfunny and overlong sea romp. -- New York Press
- The movie lost me right from the beginning, when I couldn't accept any of its plot premises and didn't believe in any of its characters. -- New York Observer
- Could have been called How to Lose an Audience in 10 Minutes. - The Hollywood Reporter
