Nick Jones (nickjones) | 7 comments It's hard to go wrong with a pair like Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. The acting is superb and the story, bitter sweet. Besides the jovial and comical exchange between the two stars, the narration is what really captivated me. I could listen to Morgan Freeman read a phone book and still be memorized. I give The Bucket List a solid 4 out of 5 stars.

I saw this film in theaters, but I feel the best setting would be at home, curled-up on the couch with a partner. ENJOY!

Colleen | 8 comments This is a great movie to see with a good friend. Afterwards, you can go to a bar and talk about how the characters changed, and what they learned thanks to each other. I'm becoming a yoga teacher right now, so I may be zenning out, but I think this movie has a lot to teach. Of course, it's always more fun to have this kind of discussion in a bar. That's what I did with my friend.

I especially liked the other relationships in the movie-- such as Morgan Freeman's relationship with his wife. It was not expected. Also, I loved the script. The writer revealed the characters' stories so naturally-- very true to life.

I went with a budding film-maker, so he had a lot to say about the director's choices. He expressed the feeling that the editing and more traditional focus on one character or the two characters talking allows the story to take front and center. That's important in this kind of film, when the locations of their madcap adventures could have overpowered the true relevance to our lives.

Tina | 4 comments I watched this movie with my mom and 13 year old son last night and just loved it! Jack and Morgan were absolutely amazing and so believable.I especially loved Jack's assistant 'Thomas' - he had some really great lines.

It is a great movie to start you thinking about your life's journey and your own 'bucket list' - I highly recommend it.
