Academy Award winners Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star in the comedy drama “The Bucket List,” directed by Rob Reiner, a touching, no-holds-barred adventure that shows it’s never too late to live life to its fullest.
A long time ago, Carter Chambers’ (Morgan Freeman) freshman year philosophy professor suggested that his students compose a “bucket list,” a collection of all the things they wanted to do, see and experience in life before they kicked the bucket.
Meanwhile, corporate billionaire Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson) never saw a list without a bottom line. He was always too busy making money and building an empire.
Then life delivered an urgent and unexpected wake-up call to both of them.
Carter and Edward found themselves sharing a hospital room with plenty of time to think about what might happen next—and about how much of that was in their hands. For all their apparent differences, they soon discovered they had two very important things in common: an unrealized need to come to terms with who they were and the choices they’d made, and a pressing desire to spend the time they had left doing everything they ever wanted to do.
So, against doctor’s orders and all good sense, these two virtual strangers hit the road together for the adventure of a lifetime—from the Taj Mahal to the Serengeti, the finest restaurants to the seediest tattoo parlors, the cockpit of vintage race cars to the open door of a prop plane—with just a sheet of paper and their passion for life to guide them.
