There is only one way The Bucket List could possibly have been entertaining: if Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman had switched roles. A male weepie lacking both shame and creativity, The Bucket List stars Nicholson as a playboy millionaire suffering from terminal cancer, and Freeman as a stoic car mechanic in the same predicament. The two men share a hospital room, where they bond and talk about the things they want to do before they die (including drive a race car like the Duke boys). Thanks to a medical miracle – or at least a screenwriting contrivance – they get a last window of good health to tackle their list. From director Rob Reiner.
