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 becoming a true believer, Laura convinces Barnes, Sampson and a dive shop owner, Keating, to search for the treasure. Together they set off from Key West in the Baker's boat, which Barnes is supposed to be looking after. Keating shows a liking for Laura, and because of this, Barnes begins to feel uncomfortable towards 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

Quotes

[first lines]
Sampson: There's nothin' in the world like gold, you know that? Nothin' in the world. A gold bar is smooth as skin, and keeps shinin' and shinin'. It's beautiful. It has its own pure color, like nothin' else in this world. And it never rusts. Did you know that? Never! It just keeps shinin' down there. And I'm the only one that knows where it is.
Chris Barnes: [chuckles] Come on.
Laura: Wait!
Chris Barnes: Laura, there's no gold.
Sampson: Shh! I'm the only one.

Puts the "skin" in skin-diving
20 December 2001 | by dinky-4See all my reviews

Remember how the search for gold in "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" led to greed, paranoia, and violence? The same sort of thing happens here, only the setting has been transferred to the Bahamas and Burgess Meredith now plays Walter Huston's role. The results are easy to watch but flat dialog, thin characterizations, and indifferent acting put this into the "forgettable" category. The musical score has that generic "straight-to-video" quality. Brooke Shields, Tom Byrd, and Brian Kerwin spend so much time in bathing suits that the movie seems to have been filmed in Speedo-Vision. In terms of "beefcake," Byrd -- whose frontal nude scene has been cut from most prints of "Out Cold" -- checks in as young, dark, and hairy -- his chest will remind you of Sam Elliott or Jeff Osterhage -- whereas Kerwin qualifies as not so young, blond, and not so hairy. Poor Brooke! Every young woman should have this kind of "meat parade" from which to choose!
