As the third entry in my recurring feature on great cinematic speeches (the first one being on Jaws and the second being on Twelve Angry Men) I thought I might highlight that electrifying speech delivered by Jack Nicholson at the climax of Robr Reiner's A Few Good Men. I really don't have much to say about it except that although I'm not sure I'm prepared to say it's one of the "all-time great cinematic speeches," it is certainly one of the most well-known (and often imitated). Many times have I been in a conversation when, somehow or other, the word "truth" was used, to which someone invariably said in their best Nicholson impression: "You can't handle the truth!" Thank you, Jack!
Once again, SPOILERS follow.
