Overview

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 unrealized 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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Like Six Degrees of Separation and Catch-22 before it, The Bucket List grabbed a place in the zeitgeist by identifying and naming a phenomenon that resonated with numerous people. Even when they hadn't seen the film, the term "bucket list" became a popular way for people to describe the exotic things they wanted to experience before dying. If only Rob Reiner's movie actually deserved that kind of widespread awareness. It starts out well enough, as screenwriter Justin Zackham takes his time establishing the characters of Carter Morgan Freeman, a jovial mechanic with a brain full of trivia, and Edward Jack Nicholson, a surly billionaire with a love of good coffee, who meet in neighboring hospital beds while fighting terminal cancer. Reiner and Zackham stay in this setting for over 30 minutes, developing these men into three-dimensional characters and mutual confidants. It's when they get to the actual bucket-listing that the film starts to rush, alternating between broad comedy and maudlin sentiment. Carter and Edward's jet-setting is thrown together haphazardly, serving only as an arbitrary background for their touchy-feely conversations and physical pratfalls. And it's quite a flimsy background -- Freeman and Nicholson are clearly acting against green screens, rather than real settings. This all leads up to a third-act reversal that manipulates the way the narrative was originally being told, intended as some kind of plot twist. Shortcomings aside, it's a consistent treat to watch these two acting treasures working together. The usually saintly Freeman is permitted to show human weakness, and does so well; the always mischievous Nicholson gets to indulge in more of the same, tossing in a few tugged heartstrings for good measure. Though watching The Bucket List shouldn't be on any dying man's list of priorities, it's a harmless enough way for the healthy to pass their time.

    i saw this movie a few months after my own father passed..

    .... he was also terminally ill with cancer. in fact, he reminds me of morgan freeman to the 'T' in this film. morgan was also one of his favorite actors. it was a hard movie for me to go and see, but i'm glad i did. it inspired me not to take anything for granted. i even wrote my own bucket list shortly after seeing the film. <BR/>It reminded me to live each day as if it was my last. <BR/><BR/>although the plot was rather serious, freeman and nicholoson make for a hilarious pairing. their chemistry was on point! <BR/><BR/>I laughed, cried, was contemplative, and then laughed and cried some more. I highly recommend this for a nice twist of tearjerking and tickling the funny bone.

    An unforgettable and heartwarming movie of the century

    I love this movie it was so touching and amazing. I cried so hard but yet laughed at the same time. I couldn't believe how amazing the actors were and the script was awesome and well written. Who couldn't love the beautiful friendship between these two men as they are dying. Travelling literally to the ends of the earth for each other they find love and fulfill there dreams. Hope you enjoy this movie as much as i did.

    The Bucket List

    Wow! I saw this movie when it was first released. I loved it! It was everything I thought it would be. Funny, inspirational and exciting.<BR/><BR/>I am a fan of Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson and have been for a long time. The lesson I got from this is...Don't take life for granted and enjoy the time you have here. It doesn't matter if you are ill with disease or healthy as ever. You should just enjoy life.

    Tear Jerker

    I'm not ususally moved by many dramas, because some of them get so bogged down in their own mellow drama enough for me to care. But this film nearly made me cry. What a tear jerker, it tugged at my heart strings. Heart warming and sad at the same time.

    Reviews were Wrong - Great Movie!

    I saw this movie and loved it. It had comedy, excitement and drama. The chemistry between Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholason made me want to see them together so much more. It's too bad the movie critics gave this movie lukewarm reviews. It was heartwarming and made me write my own &quot Bucket List&quot .

    Find joys in your life and give enjys to each others

    I love this movie, not only because of great performance by two great actors, but also because it reviewed some great truth in life. Life is a only a short journey. Everybody need to check out at certain time. We need to find joys in our life and give joys to each other's life. I will definitly buy a CD and add it into my home movie liberary.

    A definite must-see...

    I watched this movie with several other people, and we all loved it!! Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman were excellent together, and the movie touches your emotions on many levels--you'll go from laughter to thoughtfulness to tears, and I'm looking forward to watching "The Bucket List" again.

    A Bucket, Brimming Over, of Life

    Selecting a category for this very fine film results in the all-encompassing label 'mixed media', for lack of a better term. It is smart (with an excellent script by Justin Zackham), addresses some important social issues, and it has moments of touching tenderness and equal moments of very sold comedy. AND it greatly benefits from the casting of Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, two consummate actors playing out a theme that is unexpectedly a solid study of friendship and love. Carter (Morgan Freeman) narrates the story: Carter gave up his dreams for a college education and major career to support his surprise child from his wife Virginia (Beverly Todd) and has worked as a mechanic to support his own family, including his son Roger (Alfonso Freeman, Morgan's son in real life also!). After his children have all become successful, Carter is suddenly diagnosed with terminal cancer. He is hospitalized for chemotherapy, only to be placed in the same room with the wealthy and cantankerous owner of the hospital, Edward (Jack Nicholson) who also has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and is also in the hospital for chemotherapy. Edward's only 'friend' (he has basically alienated the world through his behavior) is his assistant Thomas (an excellent Sean Hayes) who tends to his every need. Gradually the two disparate men grow into a friendship united by the common bond that they both must face impending death. Together they create 'the bucket list' - things they want to do before dying, and because of Edward's wealth, they leave the hospital on a worldwide adventure of skydiving, racing cars, visiting the pyramids, etc. The manner in which these two elderly men bond casts a warm glow over the film without ever touching on the maudlin risk of communication. They simply grow in their appreciation of life as they learn from each other. Freeman and Nicholson are in peak form here and the supporting cast is very fine. But special credit must go to director Rob Reiner for giving us yet another film about humanism that would enrich the lives of anyone who takes the time to watch this very fine film. Grady Harp

    A great movie for all ages

    I wasn't able to see it at the theater and looked forward to the DVD release so I could own it. I watched it with a good friend and now am watching it again alone. It is a fabulous story and the acting is great, as you would expect of Freeman and Nicholson. A Social Worker

    A MUST SEE ...

    A story with humor, friendship, anger and an outstanding film for any age... Couldn't wait for this movie to be released on DVD to add to my library. I would never have expected less from these 2 outstanding actors. I can't even think of a movie with either Mr. Freeman or Mr. Nicholas that I haven't enjoyed!!! They haven't lost what made us love them in the first place and do an excellent job of portraying the characters in this drama/comedy. We should all be so lucky to have this kind of friendship!!

    ick

    This was a horrible movie. Two great actors "phoning in" a hackneyed, cliched piece of dreck. Every move was telegraphed. The accompanying music sounded like a commercial for a "Time-Life" 60s compilation. The rote montage of these terminally ill men racing performance cars and sitting on Egyptian Pyramids looked blue-screen fake. Nicholson and Freeman are great actors (although how many more "wise & noble, pseudo-deity roles will Freeman essay?). Rob Reiner has been inspired in the past: "When Harry Met Sally" and "Spinal Tap." But the "Bucket List" was consumate Hollywood crap. That said, my wife loved it...
