I added this movie to my Netflix Que under the guise of 'Comedy', and having heard from people how they laughed so hard at this film....

For 2 hours I watched 2 men dying from cancer, one leaving his life long wife behind and the other one leaving with nothing but his fortune....

oh yea.. laugh it up.

Was a good, yet very depressing movie. I plan on finding the people that said how funny it was and smack them upside the head with my medical bills.

Sounds like the time I saw Requiem for a Dream. I had heard it hyped as the best stoner film ever. All about drugs and extremely good. I made plans to see it with two of my biggest smoking chums and one of their girlfriends, but I had to work beforehand. I ran back to the apartment to change into normal clothes and partake in a bit of the mood enhancer I could smell thickly, but apparently the fuckers had started without me and all that was left were two roaches one fresh, one from a few nights earlier. I was a little bummed that I was still essentially sober, but man was I glad when the film started to turn into the WORST allegedly "stoner film" I've ever seen. The girlfriend left in tears, and I think us guys were all holding them back.

Requiem was the lamest 102 minutes I've ever had the misfoutune of wasting my time on. It wasnt' depressing or sad, it was boring uninteresting, and yawn inducing.

I never even heard of The Bucket List until this thread. I guess this is why:

wrote ...
Criticism
The film received mixed reviews from critics. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 41 percent of reviews were positive, based on 147 reviews. It also has a 24 percent rating from their top critics.[3] Metacritic reported the film had an average score of 40 out of 100, based on 33 reviews.[4] Roger Ebert, who has thyroid cancer, spoke for himself when he criticised the film's portrayal of cancer sufferers, writing in his review that The Bucket List "…thinks dying of cancer is a laff riot followed by a dime-store epiphany."[5]

The Times of London ranked The Bucket List at No. 17 on its 100 Worst Films of 2008 list.

Man, your people must have some incredibly shitty taste in movies Goady.

I do want to see The Wrestler, so it's not like I'm holding Requiem too strongly against him.

Requiem for a Dream always sounded depressing so I never bothered. And I actually picked up The Bucket List on bootleg just cuz I like both Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, but that same day my boss' daughter, a really good friend of mine and my sister's best friend (almost a sister to us, really) fuckin' OD'd. I haven't felt much like watching it since then.

Requiem for a Dream was an odd refernce but I actually also have conflicting views of that film. It was a great movie, but in an extremely disturbing way. My lust for Jennifer Connelly aside, the fact that she sold herself for dope.. aaaarrrggg...

Actually I think a better reference is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, also marketed as a comedy, but I found it to be one of the most depressing films I have ever seen.

And as for critics and refernces - I trust no one's opinion but my own. Hell My favorite Movie is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead tongue

I liked the bucket list. I thought it was one of those movies that made you laugh, cry and get all pissed off in one film. I wouldn't call it a comedy, but I wouldn't call it a drama or a tragedy either.
