Absolutely brilliant!! Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson are amazingly convincing! Superb storyline, superb acting, humorous, sad, realistic.... everything you want in a movie. HIGHLY recommended viewing!
I'm surprised people have rated this movie highly. I found it painful to sit through. Over-sentimentalised Hollywood twaddle pretending not to be a vehicle for two otherwise talented ageing stars. Variable... Read more funny at times, if in a highly predictable way.
I really liked this film mainly because I felt the two characters had great charisma and that spark between them. They were characters you cared about (although Jack Nicholson's character grew on you... Read more the longer the film went on). The acting was superb and they didn't milk it at the end. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed this movie. Great cast. Some good humour along with the reality of life and death.
I find Morgan Freeman very easy to watch - the plot idea is fine but it was always hard to avoid soppiness.
This film seems to polarise people. Some people love it, others hate it. I was expecting to hate it. I don't know how it got onto my queue - my wife denies choosing it and I KNOW I didn't - but it... Read more turned up one day and I decided to watch it.
It's alright. Far better than I expected, though it does wallow a bit towards the end. And they Morgan Freeman voiceover thing is a bit tiresome - yeah, he's got a great voice, but does EVERY director have to give him the voice over duties ... ? And there are no surprises in the course of the film at all. Though at least there was no dog.
But it does have two of the greatest stars in Hollywood, playing suitably mature roles, in the same room together. It gets far further on star power alone alone than it other wise would have. And the first half, with the two men enduring treatment and facing up to death is more ... confronting ... that you might expect in a Hollywood star vehicle based around a trend-of-the-minute concept.
A fantastic movie, a real must see. Great acting, funny at times, but it also give you enough food for thought. Have you done everything you wanted to do with your life?
Great actors, good story.....really loved the ending. A little slow moving at first, but entertaining as you got into it.
Interesting, funny and sad. Good acting by Freeman and Nicholson of course. Recommended viewing.
One of my favourite movies- fabulous. About to get it out again.
