The Writers of Fool's Gold Get One Thing Right


In an otherwise unwatchable movie, a surprisingly insightful 5 seconds.

Matthew McConaughey plays a sunken treasure hunter and an idiot.  The bad guy treasure hunter confronts McConaughey's partner, who is only incidentally in the movie.

"Well, well, well, if it isn't the Ukrainian sidekick."

"I don't tink of myself dat way," says the partner, whose name I don't think we ever learn.  "I am dee lead character in my own story."

Right on, man.  Right on.

How do you end up being suckered into watching these terrible movies? Is it just morbid curiosity, or hellbent optimism?
