Chinese bootlegs, coupled with child slave labor, are good for one thing and one thing only – funding the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. That said, bootlegs are notorious for misspellings, mistranslations and the occasional guy in front of the camera that gets up to take a piss.
However, in the case of the Special Edition Chinese Bootleg version of Academy Award winning actor Matthew McConaughey‘s Fool’s Gold, the Chinese mistranslation, unlike McConaughey‘s acting, is spot on.
Editor’s Thoughts: I was completely shocked that “Good Actor McConaughey,” as his friends call him, was in a subpar film. His recent blockbusters, Failure to Launch, Two for the Money, Sahara, The Wedding Planner, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days were all such groundbreaking successes that Fool’s Gold’s domestic gross of $231,041 came as a huge shock to both myself and the rest of the six-million strong McConaughey For Thought Fanclub… that it made that much.
