The Bucket List  

Posted by soreal

A bucket list is a list of the things a persons wants to do before he dies or as the expression goes, before he kicks the bucket. This movie is about two very different individuals with cancer stuck together in a hospital room and how each of them learned from each other in the process of following the bucket list they made. They have become really good friends despite their striking difference. They have touched and healed each others lives in the 3 months they spent alive together.

Jack Nicholson who plays the eccentric, corporate billionaire Edward Cole and Morgan Freeman who plays the charismatic mechanic, amateur historian Carter Chambers were both in their acting best in this movie. I never thought I would cry in a Nicholson and a Freeman movie but I did with this one. I cried buckets.
