The scene where Tess slaps Ben after they walk out of the court house was filmed in front of the Vice-Chancellor's Building at the Queensland University of Technology, which is above the city's botanical gardens. See more »

Yesterday i watched this movie for the seventh time and thought to myself.. hey i never watch movies more than twice and i rarely enjoy watching them over again, and here i am, having great time, watching Fool's gold for the seventh time, something must be wrong, i must like this movie more than any other. And in fact it is my favorite. I feel it, i enter the atmosphere of this naive paradise like world. I love that it is so positive, even when there is a fight and one is trying to shoot the other there isn't any hate or anger. Not to mention that almost any scene from the movie qualifies for an amazing desktop wallpaper. There are big yachts, hot chicks, clear ocean waters, paradise island, treasures, funny jokes and original action scenes. Perfect ingredients for me. I wish everyone to feel so much enjoyment from a movie like this, it is awesome!
