Corporate billionaire Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson) and working class mechanic Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman) have little in common, or so it seems. At a crossroads in their lives, they share a hospital room and discover that surface differences (and sheet contempt) aside, they have a deep desire to experience the best that life has to offer, before they 'kick the bucket'. They write a joint 'bucket list' of and embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
Exploring the emotions surrounding the news of a short life expectancy, this is sensitively but humorously crafted by two mature actors. Sometimes a bit limp but generally an interesting idea well explored.

Tears of laughter and sadness
- The Bucket List review by TB
Two of my favourite actors (Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson) deliver and endearing on-screen paternship in this wonderfully funny, yet heartwarming film. The best films are the ones that make you cry with laughter but also cry with sadness and this certainly delivers. A fantastic film that should be on everyone’s bucket list!
