Put two Brilliant Actors together and what can you expect
A simple premise done magically is all I can say about this movie.
Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson are by far and away two of my favourite actors. Jack Nicholson is just funny, no matter what he says or does, ever since Terms of Endearment he has made me laugh so hard that I cry and Morgan Freeman is just the best actor going around. I find it hard to remember a bad movie that he has done.
Probably not everyone will like this movie but it is definitely up there with the best feel good/sad movies that I have seen....and it has a moral that most of us miss in our hectic, live for the now short lives.
This is going to be up there with the best at the Oscars in 2008.
It will make you laugh and cry all at once...it did me.
