Poster for Fool's Gold

Ben ‘Finn’ Finnegan (Matthew McConaughey) is a surf-bum-turned-treasure hunter who is obsessed with finding the legendary Queen’s Dowry – 40 chests of exotic treasure that was lost at sea in 1715. In his quest, Finn has sunk everything he has, including his marriage to Tess (Kate Hudson) and his more-rusty-than-trusty salvage boat, Booty Calls.
