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.
Tess Finnegan: Do you mind?

Worth your money in gold..... well not really but it was good
10 February 2008 | by skydiverblondeSee all my reviews

This was a pretty good movie. I laughed and so did a lot of other people so I would definitely say it was worth the money and watching. Sometimes I think that people have nothing better to do but whine and moan cause they want to see every thing for free and have poor taste in movies. those are the people that wait in line three days to watch star wars and think everything else sucks. May have rated this a little high but wanted to get it up to at least 6.5/10. Has a couple slow parts but good story, and good footage of the ocean. I have liked all of Matthews movies over the years and Kate for that matter. The last movie they were in together was really good too. For a guy going to a chick flick with his girl at least it has some blood and action and doesn't make you want to cry.

I want to get some scuba gear and go look for treasure myself after watching this movie. Hope most of you don't read the first comment and give this a try to see if its worth it for yourself. I use to listen to a friend of my all the time about movies and would eventually see them and disagree most of the time and feel misinformed about how good a movie is. Now if he told me that a movie is a waste of time I would go see just to see if he was just being to hard on a good movie or telling the truth.

Well I hope to have been helpful, cause I know plenty of people in the theater I went to would agree that this was not a bad movie that you can see whats going to happen the whole time blah blah whine whine whine......
