Surely one of the great indignities of aging, The Bucket List stars Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as two very different men diagnosed with terminal illnesses. In a moment of whimsy, Freeman proposes a bucket list – a list of things they would like to do before they die.

Of course, because they’re old men, they have only two modes of behavior available to them: wise or cranky. As you might guess, Freeman gets saddled with wise (being a magical black man) and Nicholson, per usual, choices irascible.
