The trailer for Fool’s Gold (Warner Bros., 2.8.08), which showed before last night’s Juno screening at the Leows/AMC plex near Harvard Square, promises a coarse, idiot-level romcom in the vein of Jewel of the Nile and Romancing the Stone.
You can tell right away from Hudson’s food-throwing-on-the-yacht bit that director Andy Tennant hasn’t lost his knack for over-emphasis. I can only presume that people like myself are going to hate most if not all of this. That seems to be the general idea, at least. Matthew McConaughey, the reigning king of the empties, costars with Kate Hudson, who has made nothing of any consequence since Almost Famous.
