Corporate billionaire Edward Cole and working class mechanic Carter Chambers are worlds apart. At a crossroads in their lives, they share a hospital room and discover they have two things in common: a desire to spend the time they have left doing everything they ever wanted to do before they “kick the bucket” and an unrealized need to come to terms with who they are. Together they embark on the road trip of a lifetime, becoming friends along the way and learning to live life to the fullest. Each adventure adds another check to their list, all done with insight and humor.
Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholas play off each other rather well in this movie. Jack is his usual sarcastic witty self and Morgan Freeman is well… Morgan Freeman. I was prepared to sit back and watch a movie giving a perspective on what’s important in life and that’s exactly what I got.
It makes you want to not take life for granted as so many people do. Rich or poor, we all need to access what’s important and what gives us joy out of our lives. If you are lookin for a good movie to snuggle up next to your loved ones with, then go ahead and go see it.
Better than the Trailer: bout the same
Worst Part: It seemed that some of the places they visited were Hollywood Studios instead of the real thing
Best Part: Morgan and Jack
Theater or DVD: This is an older generation or date movie, so if you’re not in that genre… maybe DVD
5 Star Rating: 3 Stars
