Two drying old men who made a list of the things there want to do before there die. The movie has only one good thing and that is Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman did alright in there roles but the movie lacks on so many different things. The movie is boring and writing is bland.

I generally don't know what people are talking about when they say this movie is bad? Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are perfect together in this movie, I often skipped watching it because of the reviews but now I wish I had of watched it sooner. Overall its a movie that gets straight to the point, has a bit of fun and leaves you with a rather satisfactory ending. Yes it's predictable but the title of the film says it all, Definitely one of my top movies, Everyone should have a bucket list!

The movie was nice, but it was a little empty. Everything moved so quickly that it was hard to capture any true meaning or sentiment to their experiences. When you pair two brilliant actors together to do a movie there are obviously going to be some good things. There were moments that I smiled, because I was genuinely touched; but this could have been a much better movie.

Talk about male-bonding!

"You measure yourself by the people who measure themselves by you!"

This film traces the adventures of the two unlikely friends, who meet in a hospital cancer ward.Jack Nicholson plays Edward Cole, a billionaire hospital owner who loves being single and partying; and Morgan Freeman plays Carter Chambers, a quiet man who works as a mechanic but reads a lot and knows every "Jeopardy!" question existent, and loves his wife and children. The two have nothing in common except for their terminal illnesses; each given six months to live. At first they do not get along. Cole's crummy attitude does not mend well with Chambers' wise remarks. However, after spending more time together, they learn to get along and become friends.

The "bucket list" of the title refers to a lifelong list of goals...

The Bucket List an easy movie to watch.

The Bucket List is one of those movies that one can watch without really paying all that much attention, and still get the gist of the story. It seems odd that two legendary actors such as Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson would be cast (and agree) to do this movie. It seems too easy for them and although the movie is ok, it leaves the audience wanting something more as we know that they are capable of Oscar winning performances.

The story focuses on two strangers, the ultimate opposites, having to share a hospital room while they are both treated for cancer. Morgan Freeman's character, Carter Chambers, is a typical working class stereotype who had to sacrifice his dreams of becoming a history professor when his wife found out she was pregnant with their first child and has worked hard...

Everything else is great except the chemistry part

The Bucket List has a pretty much simple yet appealing story that deals with two dying men who created a list of things to do before they kick the bucket so to speak. There a few high sides this film has, like the fact that the script was great and having big name actors to deliver them is even better. The concept of creating this list somewhat reminded me of yet another TV series called My name is Earl. Earl Hickey is supposed to be Morgan Freeman and Randy is supposed to be good old Jack. But unlike their TV counterpart the veteran actors did not even spark chemistry between them. Yes they delivered great lines and yes they are great actors, but thatís about it. I have a best friend and I know what that chemistry is like and that is not what I saw between Freeman and Nicholson. If I wou...
