We went to the cinema Saturday night and as we have Netflix, we only tend to do this if we really want to see a movie or it’s better on the big screen. On the strong recommendation of some friends, we handed over our dollars to see ‘The Bucket List’.
It stars an aging, heavier but still irresistibly charming Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman a wonderful character actor, who I personally think has the best speaking voice on the planet. It’s about the relationship these men develop sharing a hospital room and terminal cancer and the way they choose to spend their last few months of life.
Not only was it very moving in parts, but it also made the whole cinema rock with laughter. Both the acting and the storyline were great, and the whole premise of going out with a bang having done all you wanted in life, is an appealing one to most of us.
We have seen alot of the latest movies out on DVD the past few months and we both agreed this was the best of all of them. You will need tissues; not just for the laughter but also the tears….it’s a movie about life and really grasping it firmly by the neck!
If you get the chance go see it, and enjoy both the humour and the message.
