The Bucket List ★½ 2007 (PG-13)

Yes, that's as in “kick the bucket.” Cliched sitcom finds cancer patients Edward Cole (Nicholson) and Carter Chambers (Freeman) getting the bad news that their time is very limited. Since Edward is a self-satisfied gazillionaire estranged from his family, he decides to indulge his every last whim and takes fellow patient Carter, a working-class married father, on their own buddy road trip 'round the world. Nicholson's crazy, Freeman's serious, and the scenery seems to be all computer-generated. 97m/C DVD . US Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Sean P. Hayes, Beverly Todd, Alfonso Freeman, Rowena King, Rob Morrow; D: Rob Reiner; W: Justin Zackham; C: John Schwartzman; M: Marc Shaiman.
