te uplifting movies of all time!
Verified purchase
One of my top ten favorite uplifting movies of all time! Whenever I choose to watch these two stellar performances by Nicholson and Freeman sharing this deep mutual bond 💗 as they face their terminal illnesses, it is like watching it for the first time. I gain new inspirng perspectives as to what matters most to me in my remaining time on this earth. This is why I love this movie. Very well scripted. Sean Hayes performance adds a fine element to the already fine dynamic duo.

Edward Cole finally finds the joy in his life
Verified purchase
Billionaire Edward Cole and working-class mechanic Carter Chambers are thrown together in a hospital room having nothing alike except for their terminal illnesses. While sharing a hospital room, finding out that they both have less than a year to life, they decide that they should make the most of the time that they have left. Chambers decides to make a bucket list, and Cole decides to jump in on helping to make the list. Throughout the movie, the two come together and travel the world to do the things on their bucket-list. Everything comes to an end when Chambers finds out that Cole has a daughter that he has been disconnected with for a long time. After not talking for awhile, Cole is asked to speak at Chamber's funeral. Cole decides that he will cross off another item on the list. The end of the movie shows that both of the men, after passing away, finished the bucket list and got buried together. Edward Cole finally finds the joy in his life, as Carter Chambers changes a stranger's life forever. - written by Maddie S., a student in my creative writing class.

maybe bootleg ?
Verified purchase
Movie was good but in my opinion i think this was a bootleg copy. I bought this used from a so called charity industry store, never again. I can't tell how to determine if this is a legitimate copy or not, but for a couple of dollars not worth returning.
There was no beginning menu it went straight into the movie. I was able to find a menu after it started.
I don't think I'll be buying used again. As for the seller hard to tell if they had anything to do with quality of this disk.

When two legends are given the stage, its amazing how enjoyable the flic. Although a serious and somber topic, the two characters make you love them through their trials, failures and even death.

One of my top 25 favs to watch.

There is just so much to say about this film, that it would take too long to say it.

You know when they have forms that ask you what your favorite movie is?

I can't think of why i never remember to say this movie.

In the dog eat dog and pony show world that this is rapidly becoming... there is enough substance to carry me through it all.
You laugh, you cry, and you "GET IT" !

It is like Our Essence, that underlies it... it has it all ~

Kudos to every single person who had a part in the making of this movie.

May God Bless You .. i know He is well pleased !

On my bucket list of movies i needed to see before i die! LoL
Verified purchase
Great movie & one my other 1/2 hadn't seen. Finally a movie we both love. Picture quality great, came fast, best price online...oddly it had no main menu or other features but it's fine. How do you go wrong with Jack Nicholson & Morgan Freeman?? Bittersweet, beautiful & I wish I was on set for every location. I'd write more but I don't wish to be the one to spoil it if you haven't seen it yet.

A heartwarming story - A movie for all generations
Verified purchase
Sometimes movies inspire, sometimes movies evoke emotions. Sometimes they put you on the edge of your seat or make you laugh and simply make you feel good.

The Bucket List does almost all of that. It's not a fast paced action movie, so I wasn't on the edge of my seat like Avatar, Saving Private Ryan, The Patriot, or Gladiator, but this is an incredible story.

Two men have a chance meeting. Their friendship struggles to get started, but evolves into a bond like Superglue and sets in motion a series of events that address all the characteristics above.

If you know someone with a temrinal illness, have days where you feel down, or simply need a pick-me-up, this is a must see. It is a moving and inspiring film for all generations.
