Okay, party movie! Yes, they all had a good time making this one. Seems this is what McConaughey fills his spare time with because it certainly doesn’t belie the depth of his talent. Hudson is always good at light comedy so this is a fit for her. Sutherland seemed a bit out of place as the tired billionaire with the daughter who doesn’t love daddy but uses him for his money. I am disappointed these days to see so many of the genuine talents of my age being relegated to barely supporting roles when they are capable of so much more. I know they are in it for the love of the art, but it still seems beneath them.
Typical boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back. The theme is a swashbuckling tale of sunken treasure, modern day pirates, and mild torture. No big surprises, likely a better late night TV view, than bothering in the theatre. I caught this on a hotel stay.
McConaughey is always easy on the eyes, but ever since I heard he doesn’t wear deodorant, the charm has really worn off!
