Corporate billionaire Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson) and working class mechanic Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman) are worlds apart. At a crossroads in their lives, they share a hospital room and discover they have two things in common: a desire to spend the time they have left doing everything they ever wanted to do before they “kick the bucket” and an unrealized need to come to terms with who they are. Together they embark on the road trip of a lifetime, becoming friends along the way and learning to live life to the fullest. Each adventure adds another check to their list, all done with insight and humor.
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman team up in this film about men facing the old age and the end of their lives by going out with a bang. I hope I have the balls to do it this way. Morgan and Jack will show all of us how it’s done this Christmas in The Bucket List. It’s a brilliant team-up, and my Morgan Meter is going crazy.
