I enjoyed it but it's definitely more drama than comedy! I was balling like a baby at the end....great way to end it but man it was sad. Love Jack and Morgan. Two great actors of our time!

Trivia question: Who was the actress who played Morgan Freeman's character's wife and what other movie were they in together?

Some of the parts were pretty funny, but as in real life... there's both comedy & tragedy. I cried.

The movie was great! It really made me think a lot about my life and I've even started to make an effort to travel more instead of always giving excuses like how busy I am or whatever.

The only thing about it was, if you've been diagnosed with lung cancer with only 6 months to live, you are not going to look or feel as healthy as Morgan Freeman's character. I knew someone who died of it and his final days were not nothing like the movie. I have no problem being in the "movie's reality" so that wasn't a big deal for me but I sure hope other's who have never experienced a loved one die of cancer think it's going to be that simple: you're diagnosed, you go through treatment, have a few good moments and then die. There's a ton of crap in between that is very intense and a reason why it wasn't shown in the movie.

+++++++++++SPOILER BUT NOT REALLY THOUGH POSSIBLY+++++++++++++
I was so surpsied at the end of the movie when I found out who was the "hiker". I mean, it makes sense of course but was still pleasantly surprised.

My friend saw this movie on a flight and said it was really good! Morgan Freeman is always a favorite (esp. in The Dark Knight! If you haven't seen it, GO!!) This movie got great reviews on Rotten Tomatoes too!

I usually pay attention to ALL members reviews, esp. the ones on R.Tomatoes webpage, they are right on the money with the opinions, usually. I loved Jack and Morgan in that quiet great story. Didn't expect OR want the characters to die before the movie was over! I like mine all wrapped up with a bow and "they lived happily ever after" package.
