    Synopsis


    The Bucket List
    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. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      The Bucket List stars Jack Nicholson as billionaire hospital businessman Edward Cole and Morgan Freeman as a hard working car mechanic named Carter Chambers who also has a passion for history. Both Edward Cole and Carter Chambers strike up an unexpected friendship after meeting in a hospital while fighting for their lives. Ironically enough, Edward Cole is rushed to the hospital after having a meeting pertaining to his business dealings with a hospital. Carter Chambers if first shown eventually being rushed to the hospital after successfully answering some trivia questions given to him by a coworker and mentioning about Tesla. There is also a cultural reference to the Divine Comedy in this film. Edward Cole has led a very successful material life, but his relationships have been another story. Meanwhile, Carter Chambers loves his wife Virginia Chambers (Beverly Todd0 and other members of his family a lot. However, Chambers decides to go on a bucket list trip with Cole because all of mostly his grown life has been spent putting others before himself. Chambers realizes that he wants to use some of his remaining months to enjoy his life before he dies. One of the touching scenes in the film is where the character of Cole is shown diplomatically but firmly insisting to his doctor that he also asks Chambers if he has any health questions as well instead of leaving him to wait longer than needed for the other doctor. Some of the adventures that Edward Cole and Carter Chambers go on together involve bungee jumping and going on a safari via seeing some animals. Cole’s assistant Matthew (Sean Hayes) helps tend to Cole’s end of life business dealings and the bucket list trip. The following features to this film are; movie trailers for Semi-Pro, Bernard and Doris, Mama’s Boy, and Get Smart. The Screenwriter of Bucket List (under the special feature of Writing A Bucket List) explains the idea behind why he decided to script The Bucket List (Mario Sorrenti is credited to have played a role in directing the Bucket List). There is also an additional bonus of getting more special features if this dvd is inserted in the dvd rom player of a personal computer. Last,, but not least, this dvd has a special feature of the music video for Say What You Need To Say by John Mayer (including scenes for the movie).

      A touching ,sentimentel movie

      Mannequin

      The movie was well written. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are great pair for this movie. Not too sarcastic but not too funny. In so many words it shows you how you cant have everything and be happy.But nor can you have a family and have everything you want without be some what disfunctional. (Jack Nicholson) A man who had everything didn't at all. he had no family. mainly because there was an issue between him and his daughter.He owned alot of hospitals.it was more low ranked then anything other. Although it was ranked that way (Jacks) Charecter still tryed to fight the hospitals policy. as he puts it :: ( He owns hospitals not health spas.)(two bedrooms to a room no exceptions):: (Morgan Freeman) a man who was a struggling mechanic and a middle class family but always dreamed of things he wanted to do.HIs wife was very over protective of him and not an easy person to please. Even with the best of care he was getting after (Jack) helped him. Two totaly different class of people (middle class and upper class) who are dying at the same time but end up in the end being eachothers friends. The moral saying in this movie would be : it doesnt matter how much money you have but if you don't have family your life isn't complete. everyone needs someone to talk too or lean on in rough times. Like the saying goes:: ( not everyone likes to be alone)

      A sad funny comedy

      This is a sad comedy. So you can use the excuse that your laughing so hard that you cry. Their is a really great chemistry between Freeman and Nicholson. They will have you laughing from close to the start of the movie up until the end. The beginning is a little slow but its not to bad. It does jump around a little bet especially when they are doing there bucket list. Also, it always seems like the two are arguing almost the hole time almost like they are married. The blu-ray really looks great but I feel one could save the extra money and buy it on dvd and be just as happy.

      jack nickleson and morgan freeman deliver oscar worthy performances in this disapointlingly short but funny and charming story. both of them have very little time to live so they go off and do some crazy fun stuff in there last days. so one funny event leads to another but thats the problem. they skip around through the fun stuff to fast and before you know it, there in an argument. but in every little event, theres plenty of laughs and freindship. overall, its a small heartwarming and sad comedy.

      I really enjoyed the movie. It was nice seeing Jack and Morgan doing their thing on screen. It's clear the respect these two great actors have for each other. It's also important to talk about an important topic like death; enjoying the road to the Homegoing and resolving important matters before we leave. The first time I heard the term "Bucket List" when when I read about this movie.

      Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman were born for the roles they played in this film. From beginning to end, this movie had my total attention. At times I laughed hard. At times I cried. But at no time did I feel a need to walk away before the film was finished. Though I know how this story ends, I still will watch it over and over again.

      I have had a copy of Bucket List for several years and consider it a very good movie with a great cast. This was probably actually "Lego Justice League Bizarro League" which I purchased the same day as Gaurdians of the Galaxey and also for my Grandson who is a big fan of Lego movies but does not have this one yet.

      There is a lot of things I'd love to do before I die, yet money is an issue at times... this movie money is no option and it's loaded with fun and risks - yet all in all, the more it goes into the movie, it really touches the heart and turns a person around, placing different views and perspectives in life. Great movie!!!
