Nicholson + Freeman = Suck

It’s time once again for Moog’s Movie Reviews!!

Where I spend money renting movies so you don't have to.


I'm stupid.

Today, I'm reviewing another movie off my Netflix list:

"The Bucket List"

The main characters are Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, and the guy who played one of the gay guys in "Will & Grace."

Nicholson and Freeman are dying of lung cancer in the movie, and are facing their impending deaths.



The plot revolves around death, and how one feels about death and dying.

I found myself uttering these words during the movie to drive this point home:

"Kill me."


"Jesus H. Christ. I should've rewatched 'Weekend at Bernie's'."

"Does my finger smell funny to you?"

This last quote had nothing to do with the movie, but clearly shows that I had lost interest in it and began navigating my various body cavities in order to stay entertained.

Honestly, I'm not sure why I rented it.

If you can manage to stomach the awkward "friendship", lack of chemistry between characters, limited laughs, and the OMG-WHAT-THE-F*CK-HAPPENED-TO-HIM shock of Jack Nicholson's face...

...then the last ten minutes are pretty decent...

...and the film wraps up pretty well.

Not well enough to save me from sticking my finger in damp places, though.


Does this thing stink or is it just me?

My Score:

1-1/2 Mooge Splats (out of a possible four)

Morgan Freeman rocks especially when he's driving old white ladies around.

Sounds like the greatest movie ever.

I thought it was a cute movie, but then again I am a huge Jack fan.

I cried almost throughout the entire movie, then I wanted to make my own bucket list.

I was forced to see this movie on the plane ride home from vacation.

I had to focus on the movie to avoid paying attention to the possibility of falling out of the sky. Since that happens all the time on Airplanes.

I really hated this movie. But you are right, the VERY end was cool. Because it was OVER.

I concur with your assessment, however, I saw it on a plane next to screaming babies which may or may not have affected my perception. :D
