IMDb Plot Summary: Corporate billionaire Edward Cole and working class mechanic Carter Chambers have nothing in common except for their terminal illnesses. While sharing a hospital room together, they decide to leave it and do all the things they have ever wanted to do before they die according to their bucket list. In the process, both of them heal each other, become unlikely friends, and ultimately find joy in life.

A Quick Review: Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson star in this beautiful, life-affirming film. I haven’t seen such a heart-warming film in a while and it has definitely made me think about life and how important the little things are. I actually already had a Bucket List of sorts with 101 things I want to do before I turn 20. This has certainly given me a boost in enthusiasm as it shows how life really is short. 
Not only was the concept beautiful, but so was the acting. Morgan Freeman especially was outstanding (as he is in every film I’ve seen him in). The relationship between him and Jack Nicholson is touching and completely cements the film. 
If you need a life boost or re-evaluation then this 100% does the job - a must-see!
Score: 8/10
