'The Bucket List'
(Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean Hayes, et al / PG-13 / 87 mins / Warner Bros.)
Overview: Two men (Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman) who are dying from cancer escape their hospital together and go on a road trip to fulfill their final "to-do" list.
Review: Oh life. It's so precious. We have to run off to the pyramids and drink champagne in France and gamble in Hong Kong before we die, or our lives will be stupid and boring and pointless. To prove this, superrich Jack and his pal Morgan both get simultaneous cancer, bond in the hospital and then spend a lot of Jack's dough jetting off to do all this stuff. Then they die. Oh, you thought they might not? You maybe entertained the possibility that they'd be cured and that the movie wouldn't go for the cheap cry? Sure you did. Oh, and when will Freeman have enough money so that he can turn down the opportunity to be the Sage? If I hear this man spout one more piece of folksy, homespun wisdom, then I just might go jump out of an airplane!!
