The Bucket List
Academy Award winners Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star in this Drama/Comedy about two terminally ill men who head off on a road trip to complete a to-do list before they die. Best described as a 'feel-good' movie, The Bucket List seemed to disappoint in many areas of the movie. Nicholson and Freeman had great on screen chemistry, but I'm thinking that if it wasn't for the two Hollywood heavyweights, this could have been an absolute disaster.
