i thought this was a really great movie.. i guess it depends on what you're looking for in a movie. jack nicholson and morgan freeman together have to make you laugh and the story line definitely pulls you in unless you take it for more than it's worth.

hell (the World), Purgatory (redemption), and finally salvation at
the top of the mountain.
