MM-The Bucket List Review_ update!!

Hey, I like it when MM comes right after Sunday Matinee's! Walt and I used to be avid matinee-ers... I dunno why we stopped. Its good inexpensive fun. I had a difficult time deciding over the Bucket List and Charlie Wilson's war, then I looked up at the times and sure enough, I had no choice.

Good call! It was a great movie~! The reason is because it surprised me in a few places! Normally, we can just sit there and tell you the outcome, but this one, I was bawling my eyes out over not what you would think. ( the cancer) Literally, I had my whole face stuck in Walt's arm as not to SOB OUT LOUD, like so many others I heard. What a great thing it is also to hear audience applause after the credits begin to roll.
Morgan Freeman's voice works on me like a tonic, and Jack Nicholson is...well.... him? I'm certain that everyone who comes out of the theatre is making a bucket list of their own. The trouble is, mine is getting so long! Good news is, there is more there than travelling, but Blima? get a suitcase out! Lets roll!
** I forgot a VERY important mention!!! This movie debuts John Mayers new song... "SAY" ( what u need to say)... which... WHENS THE CD COMING????????

MM's


For safe driving in scary conditions, and answered prayer.
For my quilting community, what on earth did I do to deserve such good colleague's...
For a website in which more work comes in!
For UGG slippers to warm my Popsicle toes each day
For the strength and tenacity of my husband.
For my Moms good fingernails:)
For a huge, loving, totally dysfunctional family.

Hey Gina, you really like the bucket list? I really want to see this movie but then I saw the critics opinion of it and they say it fell short of what these two actors are capable of. But I would believe you more than the critics if you say it is worth seeing!
And I am going to grab up your marvolous sounding chili recipe too!

It was great Di... Even Walt loved it, and he is a guy who doesnt like 6 hankie movies...lol The critics were probobly insensitive dorks:)
I wouldnt say that this is thier best performance 5/5.... but what i will say is that it was real, believeable, laughter through tears, entertaining fun. Which is why I go:)

Hi Gina, yes, the critics really slammed this movie. Good to get another viewpoint.

dysfunctional families are the best, aren't they. Who wants perfect anyway...so boring!
