"Absolute dynamite! The chemistry between Nicholson and Freeman is outstanding."
-Marshall Fine, STAR MAGAZINE

You only live once, so why not go out in style?
That's what two cancer-ward roommates, an irascible billionaire (Jack Nicholson) and a scholarly mechanic (Morgan Freeman), decide when they get the bad news. They compose a bucket list - things to do before you kick the bucket - and head off for the around-the-world adventure of their lives. Sky dive? Check. Power a Shelby Mustang around a racetrack? Check. Gaze at the Great Pyramid of Khufu? Check. Discover the joy in their lives before it's too late? Check!

Under the nimble direction of Rob Reiner, the two great stars provide the heart and soul, wit and wiles of this inspired salute to life that proves that the best time of all if right now.

My Comments:

Buddy comedy meets cancer drama. A formulaic, predictable film that is nevertheless fun to watch and stars two of Hollywood's best actors.
