I. Introduction A. The Bucket List Director: Rob Reiner Actor/s and Actress/es: Jack Nicholson as Edward Cole Morgan Freeman as Carter Chambers Sean Hayes as Matthew/Thomas Beverly Todd as Virginia Chambers Movie Company: Warner Bros. Pictures B. Synopsis Mechanic Carter Chambers and billionaire hospital magnate Edward Cole meet for the first time in the hospital after both have been diagnosed with cancer. They began talking with each other, they gotten close, and ended up as men with an unbreakable friendship. C. Over-all impression of the movie This movie is an important reminder that we must seize every moment because life is short.
Edward’s company owns the hospital. He initially refuses medical care at one of his “factory-type” hospitals. Matthew convinces Edward that he must be admitted in his own hospital to avoid a public relation nightmare. Carter learns that he only has 6 months to live and made a list of all the things he wants to do before he dies. Overall, I enjoyed the movie.

While sharing a hospital room together, they decided to leave 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 healed each other, become unlikely friends, and ultimately find joy in life.
