Quotes

Gary: [about Finn] I still can't get over the way he just came up out of the water like that.
Eddie: I know. And holding the sword!
Gary: And he just makes this totally perfect toss and the sword lands straight up in the deck.
Eddie: Amazing!
Gary: But it's more than just the sheer power of his raw sexuality. It's the totality of his emotional commitment to the task at hand.
Eddie: Yeah, it's the focus. It's the focus.
Gary: He sees it; he wants it; he goes after it; he gets it.
Eddie: He sure got me.

entertaining
16 April 2012 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This movie was exciting, entertaining, and a good blend of romance, adventure, drama, and entertainment. Matthew McConaghey and Kate Hudson are a newly divorced couple who learn that a treasure they've been after is off the coast of Key West (thanks to Mr. Mac), and they take a cruise ship to go get it. My favorite scenes are the divorce scene, the diving scenes, and the scenes with the rich, air-headed rich girl. McConaghey is heavily in debt to a murderous rap star, which is why he is after the treasure. After a slow start, this really picks up and turns into a decent movie with gorgeous settings and lovely underwater photography and good cast chemistry. I loved it.
