Review: The Bucket List.

Director: Rob Reiner
Release date: 11th January 2008.
Genre: Drama/Comedy/ Adventure
Punch line: Live Life King Size.
Cast :Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman

Two terminally ill men escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of to-dos before they die. The story is quite predictable, but I still enjoyed it. It is a great movie about friendship - how two men become great friends in a short span and help each other out throughout the time they are together. It moves along at a smooth pace and I never got jaded, so the writer gets credit for that. The acting was top notch as Nicholson and Freeman draw forth the right emotion in the audience on dot. The emotional parts are done just right, but the funny scenes are the best. I laughed throughout the movie. Movie delivers a message perfectly. A message about how you should live your life to the fullest, how your family is important, and how you should be happy in life

I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a feel-good movie.
