The Bucket List Review

Ok to the cry babies, you should save a box of tissue before seeing this. Seriously, even I was close to tears myself when the movie ended. So if you watch this, don't watch with Kenny.
 
The theme of The Bucket List was really simple. What would you do if you knew you had 6 months to live? And, who would you do it with? The story is about two complete strangers who are diagnosed with cancer, who escape from the hospital and go on a journey to complete their bucket list, which is this list of things you want to do before you die.
 
The characters and plot developed so well in just a hour and a half movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as the main characters. It didn't really focus on the completing of the list but the friendship between the two guys which got stronger as they went on in their adventure. They started out kinda awkward coz they didn't even know each other at first but as time progressed, it was as if they were life long friends. And Oh My God.....the ending where they had to go their separate ways(oops..spoiler) was so beautiful and sad, for sure your eyes will do waterworks.
 
It's also quite a powerful film about things more important than money and power or even family. I mean, you live your whole life getting a job, climbing ladders, getting money or starting a family, have kids, see them go to college and then when it's all done you just feel shitty coz you realize there was more to life than just that.
The acting was oh so chun from the two Oscar winners and the script is super hilarious. Imagine two 70 year old cancer patients, with their botak heads from chemo going Nascar racing, lion hunting in Africa, sky diving, climbing the Himalaya's, riding Harleys on the Great Wall Of China and getting tattoos. Also, since Jack Nicholson is in it with a black dude, prepare for a lot of discriminative nigga jokes and 'F' bombs. Super funny.
 
This film is a perfect story of life and friendship. It's kinda sad that it's Jack's last one but it's kind of a nice movie to end on. For sure after the movie, you'll have that fuzzy feeling inside and a strong want to hug your best friend.

RATING: 7/10
