The Bucket List

Bucket List.jpgIf you haven't seen this movie yet, you should. I first saw THE BUCKET LIST on a plane back from speaking on St. Paul in Texas . I like Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman so I had better than average expectations. It turned out being one of my Top Ten movies. You can buy it from Amazon.com here or rent it at Netflix here.

Two guys get stuck in a hospital room together and find out they have about 6 months left to live. One is a believer, the other a selfish hedonist. The story plays out with humor, fun, a bit of theology and philosophy along with a little crude language. The message shouts to our selfish existentialist society that there is something more than money and pleasure — and you don't have much time to discover it.

I saw the movie on a plane coming back from Quito, Ecuador and I enjoyed it too! The ending was really special… If you haven’t seen it… rent it!
