Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Fool’s Gold...

This tale about finding sunken treasure does have a daughter and father working out their differences and a husband and wife rethinking a divorce. However, other content overshadows these highlights. Violence consists of gunplay, with characters being threatened and shot at (some non-life-threatening wounds result). A man is harpooned in the leg, a woman is kidnapped by men and forced into a deep hole, and a pilot is kicked out of a plane while the craft is still in the air. Sexual content ranges from a variety of tiny bikinis and low cut shirts to one brief shot of fully exposed female breasts. Sexual activity between a married man and woman are implied as well as overheard. There are also plenty of sexual innuendos, including comments made by a homosexual couple. Moderate profanities and terms of deity are used frequently throughout the script. Alcohol use to the point of drunkenness is depicted, and one inebriated character is portrayed driving a boat.
