The box jellyfish is only located on the northern coast of Australia. So the infestation of them could have only been there where they were actually filming. And the mountain range back ground doesn't exist in the Caribbean. So in fact it was filmed in Australia. See more »
Gemma arrives on Nigel's yacht, which has no helipad, via helicopter. Nigel greets her as she walks up a staircase. The helicopter would have landed on the roof, so she should be coming down, not up. See more »
Nigel, I'm so sorry, but she's gotta learn that there's better ways to get attention than acting like a bimbo.

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.
