The Bucket List

Critics hated "The Bucket List".

People like me loved it.

Cliff and I loved it, even though it left us both misty-eyed by the end.

What do critics know?

*note to my daughter:  This is the last Netflix movie we'll have for awhile; feel free to watch it this week before I return it.

I heard that movie was GREAT! I haven't seen it yet, though.
Now I have to rent it!

My MIL wants to watch it...she has been very ill and they don't give her long at all.  She wants to watch it with us which will just make it even more sad for us to see it.  My niece said it was "ok" but she is also in her 20's...I don't think she would "get it".

I saw it, and agree!  It was very good!  Jack Nickelson and Morgan Freeman, at their best!

So what do the critics know.....everytime I have seen what a critic has said about a movie being 'not worth seeing' or a 'big disappointment' etc....I have thoroughly enjoyed it ...LOL  As in this case. The Bucket List is a great movie.....Jack Nicholson is not my favorite actor, but I think he did a great job with the character in this movie. Morgan Freeman, on the other hand, is one of my favorite actors so I guess that's one of the main reasons I liked the movie. The story line was a HOOT. What a way to GO !!!  LOL.

I think the critics didn't like it because they were expecting funny.  I LOVED it. Cried like a baby through some parts, but loved it!
