The Bucket List

On the long flight to Ukraine last May, the airlines on which we were flying showed several movies. I got interested in one that was already in progress, The Bucket List. The Bucket List is a 2007 comedy-drama film written by Justin Zackham, directed by Rob Reiner, and starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The story follows two terminally ill men (Nicholson and Freeman) on a road trip with a wish list of things to do before they "kick the bucket (this is from Wikipedia).

Last night I watched it again (Netflix) and really enjoyed it. Why? It is thought provoking, entertaining, funny in places, sad in others. It may not be for everyone, but I plan to purchase a copy to have in my library.

This movie has been on our movie channel a lot lately, so I've caught bits and pieces of it. Unfortunately, it's never on at a good (aka: the kids are asleep) time, so I haven't watched it.

Have you a bucket list? I do and someday I will publish it on the blog.
