Well, I went to see "Fools Gold" Last weekend. I thought is was a fun movie in a "campy" way. I noticed the critics pretty much hated it, which is why I wanted to see it. Has any one else seen it yet?

My wife and I loved it. But I am a sucker for the tropical island scuba diving treasure film. I thought was well shot with really believable underwater work. Funny how there was no credit for an underwater crew.

Ill find out some info tomorrow, i'm working with a guy that did that job. I know the Electrics/Grip team did the underwater lighting/rigging as well as the dry stuff.

I liked it, It was more campy then "Book Of Secrets" but still very good. Donald Sutherland was great. the underwater stuff was really good as well. I dout this is a movie that AC or ICG will cover.
