Kevin Hart had never seen the word "facade" in print. He said the line, "Don't you think that this is a fakade?" three times before the director corrected him. When asked what he though he was saying, he said he didn't know, but he knew he sold the line. See more »

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.
