When Tess is alone in the blow hole just before Finn jumps in. This is the last time she is on the inside edge of the blow hole and dives in. There is no rope seen around her body (her back) as she is diving in. The next seen under water the rope is tied around her waist again. See more »
Well, well, well. If it isn't the Ukrainian sidekick.
I don't think of myself that way. I am the lead character in my own story.

My expectations for this movie were very low going in, and I would say that the movie met them. I expected a fun, exotic, exciting adventure, which the movie delivered upon. It is a fairly predictable movie, but always fun to watch Mathew McConaughey play the guy who hasn't grown up along with Kate Hudson playing the lady who wishes he would. Their chemistry is great, and isn't that all you really expect from a movie like this, regardless of plot?
The only thing that didn't fit in the movie was a couple of overly bloody scenes (on an absolute basis the blood was very minor, but the fact that they showed up at all was surprising.)
Not the best movie you will ever see, but will certainly give you a break from all this extreme winter weather we have been having.
