The Bucket List
Rob Reiner directs an uplifting film about how to live life to the fullest in the drama, comedy The Bucket List. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman play a greedy millionaire and a mechanic who are both diagnosed with Cancer and have one year to live. They end up in the same hospital room and make plans to do all of the things they always wanted to do before they die. This film is funny, emotional and entertaining. The performances by Nicholson and Morgan are fantastic as expected and the chemistry between the two is refreshing. The pacing of the script is perfect and it flows easily even though it’s somewhat predictable. The movie has several holes in the bucket (some scenes just don’t fit) but the bucket is big and the holes are small. This film could have been better but I still enjoyed it and I’m giving it a B rating.
This movie has been given a PG13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
