The Bucket List Review

It is painfully manipulative and sappy but, at times, it sometimes almost works because of two great lead performances. The script might be the most putrid this year BUT Reiner actually managed to get Nicholson to calm down a bit and chew a little le...(read more)ss scenery than usual and got (as per the norm) a great turn from Morgan Freeman. If lesser actors were in this it could have easily been the worst movie of the year (or maybe even ever...). Well it's nice to see these two legends together and it may well be worth seeing just for that, but don't expect something great. Sidenote: Maybe I'm just a cold callous bastard because pretty much the entire theater was sobbing at the end...

Overall Score: 5/10
