Ideally cast as filthy rich old codger Edward Cole, Nicholson and his fellow patient Carter Chambers (Freeman) find themselves diagnosed with terminal cancer, and decide to go out with a bang rather than a whimper, working their way through a 'bucket list' of male-bonding activities. Justin Zackham's script runs through the possibilities mechanically, but Reiner's film derives its power from Nicholson's let-it-all-hang-out performance for an indulgent greatest hits reprise.
