The Bucket List is a American buddy comedy-drama film directed and produced by Rob Reiner, written by Justin Zackham, and starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The main plot follows two terminally ill men on their road trip with a wish list of things to do before they “kick the bucket”.
The film premiered on December 15, 2007 in Hollywood and opened in limited release in the United States on December 25, 2007, by Warner Bros. The film then had a wide release on January 11, 2008. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, the film was chosen by National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2007 and was a box office success, grossing $175 million worldwide.
Two elderly men, blue-collar mechanic Carter Chambers and billionaire health care magnate Edward Cole meet for the first time in a hospital that Cole just bought after both have been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Cole wants a private room, but his own public statements, which state that in his hospitals, all rooms are double-occupancy for cost-efficiency, get in the way.
Carter is a gifted amateur historian and family man who wanted to become a history professor in his youth but never rose above his status as a mechanic. Cole is a four-time divorced health care tycoon and cultured loner who enjoys tormenting his personal valet/servant, Thomas —who later reveals his name is actually Matthew. Cole enjoys drinking kopi luwak, one of the most expensive coffees in the world.
