What's in your bucket?
"The Bucket List" is a beautiful movie about two dying men, portrayed by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson who share a hospital room. After learning of his fate, Freeman's character starts a bucket list - things he wants to do before he kicks the bucket.
While Freeman's list consists of simple things like laughing so hard he cries and kissing the most beautiful girl in the world, Nicholson's character, a billionaire, gets hold of the list and adds bigger and better ideas like sky diving and hunting big cats in Africa.
The two are off with their list in hand, crossing things off as they try to live out the rest of their lives to the absolute fullest.
Obviously, bucket lists can vary for different reasons. Maybe someone just wants to do something exciting, like bungee jumping or trying sushi, before they hit a landmark age. Someone else might want to achieve smaller goals like Freeman's character did when he wanted to drive a Mustang.
