The Bucket List Review

Synopsis: Corporate billionaire Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson) and working class mechanic Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman) have nothing in common except for their terminal illnesses. While sharing a hospital room together, they decide to leave it and do all the things they have ever wanted to do before they die according to their bucket list. In the process, both of them heal each other, become unlikely friends, and ultimately find the joy in life.

Other Reviews:

Ebert & Roeper: Thumb Down (Scott) and Thumb Up (Roeper)
Fandango: Oh No 3, No 7, So-So 34, Go 227, Must Go, 574
Rotten Tomatoes: T-Meter Critics: 40% Rotten, Top Critics: 24% Rotten, RT Community: 70% Fresh
Yahoo Movies: Critic: C, Users: B+

My Review: Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman are both great in this movie. Awesome acting but the story is cutesy. The title/ trailer give the whole story away, heck the synopsis above give away the whole story. I am recommending this film. Some sappy girls may need a Kleenex and guys with a soft heart will get a “man-tear.” The best part of the film is Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman.
