The Bucket List

- “Find the joy in your life”

Carter: The empress was the wife of Shah Jahan, the fifth Mogul emperor. Although it was an arranged marriage, they were deeply in love and remained inseparable until she died giving birth to their 14th child.

Edward: Do you mind if I call you Ray? Main man Ray.

Carter: Are you listening to anything I’m saying?

Edward: Absolutely. Fourteen kids. I’m with you (giggles).

Carter: It took 20,000 volunteers 22 years to complete this structure. Every square foot designed by the shah himself.

Edward: So that’s true love.

Carter: That’s true love.

Edward: Must be nice.

Edward is afraid if he might
wake up in his cemetery to find himself enclosed and his voice not reaching out to earth. He wonders if they still make those coffins with the bells at all. He is such a humorous fellow.

Corporate billionaire Edward Cole (Jack Nicholson) and working class mechanic Carter Chambers (Morgan Freeman) are sharing a hospital room together. These two complete strangers become unlikely friends and play their part to heal each other. They prepare a bucket list, a list of activities they have ever wanted to do, and more or less they do all the things before kicking the bucket. They do lots of crazy things to find the joy in their life- the joy they had always wanted but had never experienced.

Morgan Freeman has always been a quite and cool fellow in almost all of his movies. He has always been a great supporting fellow. But crazy Jack Nicholson has always been crazy. He has always been crazy while helping; while killing; while laughing; and, while being aggressive. He is such an extreme crazy fellow. He is not a golden means’ fellow. Watching him has always been a great moment to me.
