When he closed his eyes, his heart was opened
Corporate billionaire Edward and working class mechanic Carter have nothing in common except for their terminal illnesses. While sharing a hospital room together, they decide to escape and do all the things they have ever wanted to do before they die according to their "bucket list". In the process, both of them heal each other, become unlikely friends, and ultimately find the joy in life.

Brilliant acting by Nicholson make up for a rather mediocre story, which sounds much better than it turns out (but even Nicholson's outstanding performance does not turn The Bucket List into a great movie).

French movie "Intouchables" shows how such a story SHOULD be told and is the much better alternative (even though one has to mention that the plots are not that similar, but the whole settings of the movies are).

Nikola Tesla's obvious humorous sarcastic remark "Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using 17 of my patents." has been widely misunderstood by mankind.

The mentioning of coffee Luwak besides Nikola Tesla had nailed to my chair for the rest of the film. There should be more movies like this. Morgan Freeman did a great job in translating the role of a person in which some of us recognize ourselves.

Jack Nicholson on top of the pyramid "Alright I'll bite..."
