Is The Bucket List (2007) as Bad as Movie Critics Say?
I just watched The Bucket List, nearly two months after it was originally released in theaters. The Jack Nicholson/Morgan Freeman death comedy didn’t get very good reviews – only 42% fresh at Rotten Tomatoes – and as such as I had relegated to this to the rental pile. However, on a cold Saturday night, one of my friends and I visited the movie theater… and found that The Bucket List was actually pretty good.
The movie is funny and at times emotional. It’s not unique, and it’s not groundbreaking or award-winning, but its humor is genuine and heartwarming. It’s fun watching Nicholson and Freeman play off one another, and they really have great chemistry.
