    This looks like a fun and sad movie at the same time. It stars Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. 2 of my favorites in this day and time.

    I haven't seen it yet, but read about it and saw the trailers for it, several times. The story is based on a millionaire and a common man sharing a hospital room, and both dying of cancer. The millionaire sees a list that the other man would like to do before he passes away, so he wants to expand on the idea. They make up a list of things they want to do before kicking the bucket, hence the name of the movie.

    I thought it might be fun to see what everyone here would put on their bucket list, if $ were no object.

    I'll have to think about it awhile and come back, but I've always wanted to visit Switzerland, so that would be on my bucket list. How about y'all?

    I watched it a few days ago. It was very funny and also sad. Probably one of the best movies I've seen in a long time!!! Check it out ASAP!!!:big_smile:

    Some of the things they did would be on my list. Can't think of a lot right now.
    I'd give the movie 2 Thumbs up and 5 Stars!!!

    There are a lot of fishing trips I would like to take! Alaska would be high on the list. The Amazon River in South America for those monster Cats. I would like to fish Europe for the mighty Wels Cat. Tons of places in Canada I would love to fish! So many fish, so little time! :crazy:

    To go a full season of NASCAR races.
    Have a house boat and travel the Ohio from Pittsburg to
    the Gulf fishing the whole summer.
    Mardi Gras would be fun wife might kill me though.
    Go bungee jumping and skydiving would be must to do.

    Cheryl, sounds like a great movie with a story like that and with Nicholson and Freeman. I've never seen a bad one that those guys played in.
    I'll be watching for it on cable. :big_smile:

    Switzerland would be a neat place to visit but we don't have much desire to travel outside the USA other than Canada. We recently got our passports for this year they are required when going to Canada.
