Storyline

Wet Gold is the story of a young woman (Laura), who works as a waitress in a cafe. Laura stumbles across a drunk elderly man (Sampson), who fills her with exciting stories of a boat that went down with millions in gold. Although Laura's boyfriend (Barnes), keeps telling her that Sampson's stories are all false, Sampson makes her believe that they are indeed true. Laura takes Sampson to a library, where she finds an old newspaper article which matches up with the events described to her by him.

After spending some time in the water, their dreams become reality, but the discovery of gold begins to show a change in their personalities. Tension fills the air as ... Written by Anonymous

The ultimate film for Brooke Shields obsessives
1 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This limp,damp remake of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre could be left to its undead existence on weekday afternoon television schedules but for two factors.First(and least important)Burgess Meredith shows what an underused and underrated actor he was, even in the hackneyed role he has here(alcoholic old seadog who ultimately has better survival instincts than the younger beautiful landlubbers).Secondly The gorgeousness that is Ms.BROOKE SHIELDS! one of the most beautiful women ever to walk the planet and don't the filmmakers know it.She is in virtually every scene in ravishing closeup most of the time and her basic attire consists of daisyduke shorts,figure-hugging scuba diving gear and and a wonderful variety of tight-fitting swimwear. The hilarious thing is that she is supposed to be an impoverished waitress,but she has more beachwear than a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. This film could,therefore, be a major historical document as it will show future generations why she was such a major figure in 70's/80's popular culture though only if you play it with the sound turned down.
