Critic Reviews for The Bucket List
You get the performances you expect from these two great stars, which lift this story mercifully but marginally above its meager content.
The Bucket List's craft is as impeccable as moviemaking technique and computer tricks can be. But boiled into a formula that is sometimes cloying and sweet, the movie is nonetheless a lazy low-grade product.
The movie is caught in the crossfire of its two missions -- to celebrate the universal things that "really matter" in life (friendship, family) and to celebrate what it means to live like Jack Nicholson.

Because not only is it very enjoyable, but it also has a lot to teach about life and what makes it worth living. With that said, I wasn't surprised at all to see it was directed by another great legend; namely Rob Reiner, who in the past has gifted us with such memorable films as "When Harry met Sally", "Stand by Me", "Misery" and "A Few Good Men". And as for "The Bucket List", well, I'm happy to say it's another brilliant addition to Mr. Reiner's long and respectable career.
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. There's the draw here in a nutshell, two heavyweights in the same space. The story, one of redemption while facing death, is predictable enough, as is predictable the reliance on its two stars to save it, which they do but only just. If only the story had mas huevos ...
