Movie Review

The Bucket List Jack Nicholson, the actor I love to hate, and Morgan Freeman, whom I love to love whether he is Driving Miss Daisy or narrating for penguins, are a great team for this funny, yet touching movie. These two older men, unlikely roomates in the hospital through no choice of their own, find comfort and friendship in learning to accept their impending deaths. Carter (Morgan Freeman) has a Bucket List, a list of things that he wants to do before he kicks the bucket. Though Edward (Jack Nicholson) initially scoffs at Carter’s list ambitions, he comes to see the wisdom and hope embodied in Carter’s outlook and he begins a list of his own. As their treatment allows, they then set out to fulfill the dreams they have, from racing cars to reconciliations with loved ones. I’ll admit to a few tears and I must say that the movie has been on my mind for days as I think about my own Bucket List. My rating: 3 out of 5 stars.
