The Bucket List - starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.
Two complete opposite men find themselves in the same hospital room fighting for their lives. An unlikely friendship develops between the two after they are each told they have not much time left to live.
They develop a list of things they want to do before they 'kick the bucket' aptly named "The Bucket List".
When they leave the hospital, they decide to go on a trip around the world in attempt to cross the items off their list.
This movie was full of both humorous and touching scenes. I found myself both laughing-out-loud and being moved by this movie. It causes one to think of their own mortality and the list of things they wish to do before they die.
No one can do it quite like Nicholson and Freeman. I certainly recommend this movie to all.

- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
