Description
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star as two terminally ill cancer patients who decide to break out of the hospital and live their last days to the fullest in director Rob Reiner's seriocomic road movie. Edward Cole (Nicholson) is a corporate billionaire who is currently sharing a hospital room with blue-collar mechanic Carter Chambers (Freeman). Though initially the pair seems to have nothing in common, conversation gradually reveals that both men have a long list of goals they wish to accomplish before they kick the bucket, and an unrealised desire to discover what kind of men they really are. But one can't accomplish such lofty objectives from the confines of a hospital bed, so now, in order to live their lives to the absolute fullest, Edward and Carter will have to make a break for it. With a checklist that includes playing the poker tables in Monte Carlo, consuming copious amounts of caviar, racing the fastest machines on four wheels, and much more, these two terminally ill men will do their best to fit a lifetime of experience into their last remaining days while forging an unlikely, but truly remarkable, friendship.

Powerhouse Performances From Freeman and Nicholson

Created: 10/06/08
"It's a full-bodied brew, blended out of equal parts comedy and drama...[with] a pair of powerhouse performances from Freeman and Nicholson."

In THE BUCKET LIST, cancer doesn't discriminate in its choice of victims. It's equally eager in its attacks on kindly sage of a mechanic Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman) and mean-spirited millionaire Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson). When the unlikely pair shares a room at a hospital, they learn that they both have less than a year to live as a result of the deadly disease. Inspired by the words of a college professor, Carter begins to make a "bucket list" of things he wants to accomplish before he dies. With Edward's limitless funds at their disposal, the men embark on an adventure that takes them from Egypt to France to Hong Kong, crossing items off their list as death grows closer. Fans of the leading actors will be glad to see them in familiar territory: Freeman plays a narrator who's nearly godlike in his omniscience, while Nicholson stars as the lovable grump. Both men have won Oscars for similar roles (Nicholson for AS GOOD AS IT GETS, and Freeman for MILLION DOLLAR BABY), so they excel in these parts. Director Rob Reiner's career has jumped between comedy and drama, and despite its serious subject matter, THE BUCKET LIST resides firmly in comedic territory. But fans of weepies such as TERMS OF ENDEARMENT and MY LIFE will find much to like in this film that is sure to require a tissue or two.

Beautiful, moving and thought-provoking genious

Created: 25/03/09
Recommended by family and friends I was pursuaded to purchase The bucket List admitidally after being impressed by the movie trailer some time ago but for some unknown reason I failed to act earlier. The result is that this movie is a firm favoruite among my DVD collection and lives long in the memory for it's touching storyline.

Jack Nicholson plays a company billionaire who has had several failed marriages and plays through life blowing his money on anything that might make him feel better. Morgan Freeman is the greasemonkey mechanic, a loyal husband and family man.

Despite their very different backgrounds they both share something in common - they are both very sick and have been given months to live. The two parties react quite differently to the news; more so because Freeman has his wife and children whereas Nicholson is lonely but for his money and daughter with whom he has not seen for many years.

After being placed side by side in the hospital in which nicholson owns, a beautiful friendship develops between the pair and blossoms after Nicholson accidentally discovers Freeman's "Bucket List"; this being a list of things that he wishes to do before "kicking the bucket".

Nicholson convinces Freeman to be a bit more adventurous with his bucket list and the pair end up doing the daring, crazy and exciting things which they scribbled onto the small sheet of paper.

Be prepared for an immensely sad ending to this story which is almost certain to bring a tear to even the strongest of characters.

It's not all sad though; the director has cleverly fitted in some very good humour and there are certainly some side-splitting moments spread throughout the bulk of the movie.

This movie is absolutely brilliant in how it addresses an issue which effects us all - the time we have to live and what we do with it.

Faultless sotryline, amazing acting from both main characters and very well directed. You'll fall in love with this classic and maybe rethink your life a little as a result... I know I have.

Without doubt a compulsory purchase - 5 stars.

One bucketload of a good film!

Created: 11/09/09
When this film first hit our screens, I took one look at the cast and went to see it. Any film starring both Morgan Freeman AND Jack Nicholson, two of my favourite actors of all time, just had to be worth seeing. I wasn't disappointed. Brilliant performances from both, combined with a funny, touching, moving and very poignant script and great direction/production means it's a 'must see'. Shortly after seeing the film I decided it was one that I could definitely watch over and over. For me, some films are like that - e.g. Shawshank Redemption (Morgan Freeman) and As Good As It Gets (Jack Nicholson). So I purchased the DVD. After seeing it again on a somewhat smaller screen, I loved it just as much. If you love either or both of these actors, buy this DVD - you will not be disappointed.

Brilliant film

Created: 07/11/09
I missed seeing this in the cinema due to my husbands ill health so decided to watch it much later on DVD. It made me laugh out loud as Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson are excellent actors, and they made a brilliant team. It also made me cry because this film shows the real down side of the cancer treatment in all its glory. I might have found it more funny had I not had to watch my husband go through it. Having said all that I'm glad I watched it as its a great film, though I dont think I would recommend it to anyone who has suffered from cancer as I think the memories would be too painful.

The Bucket List

Created: 23/02/11
I LOVE THIS FILM! I watched it at the cinima and found it so funny & also very emotional. It really makes you think about your life choices.
The story follows two very different characters that happen to meet in hospital after both having major operations at a late age in life. Under normal circumstances these people would have never crossed paths or been friends but when stuck in hospital together they both help each other overcome obstacles in their life. Such smart comedy but with a sad but great ending. It is a must see...
Everyone who watches immediatly gets out a pen & paper & begins there own buckets list!
I thought it would be a great present for my grandad at the moment so thats why I decided to buy it again.
