Screenwize

Meehl's gentle handling of her subject and her unobstrusive, observational camera work make this a delightful and touching experience.

Whilst this remains reasonably captivating for its first hour, it kinda runs out of steam after that...

A modestly uplifting, and at-times poignant, buddy comedy that manages to make the most of the worst of situations.

An endearing film that will bring you to tears and have you cherishing every relationship and day you have.

Reel Film Reviews

...a hopelessly uneven endeavor that's ultimately felled by a lamentable emphasis on heavy-handed bursts of schmaltziness.

...sentimental, simplistic, and almost shamefully manipulative, yet I found it absolutely charming.

No Grumpy Old Men these two, as Nicholson's over-the hill sex machine billionaire with his serial quickies on demand, and Freeman's egghead underachiever spar with the Grim Reaper. Two Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

For those who want to Believe, those who want to be cuddled by the fake laughter through tears emotions that only an expertly made piece of Hollywood toffee like this can provide - if only for the moment - get out your hankies.

Laramie Movie Scope

An entertaining tear jerker of a story about two old men facing the end of two very different lives.

Although it's certainly not on par with his best work, The Bucket List is the best film Reiner has made in a long time.

This rather special film is one about mortality and immortality and guarantees both laughter and tears. Of course, the combination of Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman is special in itself

Una comedia menor, sensible y muy disfrutable, que descansa sobre el histrionismo de dos grandes actores como Jack Nicholson y Morgan Freeman.

Cinema Crazed

Is never as trite and cliché as it could be, instead it intends on being a genuine character study focusing on two unfulfilled men who tend to balance each other out...

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Adam and Eve. Lennon and McCartney. The Captain and Tenille. Just a few duos that managed to make a little magic when they got together. And now, for you're viewing pleasure, may I add the celebrated team of Jack and Morgan.

Shadows on the Wall

Despite a somewhat simplistic view of life ... an engaging examination of two men looking back at their lives without pity or regret.

State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Calling it Rob Reiner's best film in 12 years doesn't mean much. Remember "Alex & Emma"? Still, this is a modestly entertaining Hollywood fairytale of facing death head-on. Its occasionally leaden story gets light, familiar notes from two legends.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

While not a classic in its own right, The Bucket List displays two great actors in classic form, a sort of Planes, Trains and Automobiles for maturing audiences.

Yes it's a bit syrupy - but you only live once and I like lots of syrup with my pancakes. May you all live like you were dyin' and laugh so hard you cry.
