The legendary Peter Falk ("Columbo") is irresistible in a life-affirming comedy to die for that also stars Laura San Giacomo (Pretty Woman, TV's Saving Grace), David Paymer (Bad Teacher, Ocean's Thirteen) and Judge Reinhold (Beverly Hills Cop 1/2/3).
On the eve of his 90th birthday, eccentric, celebrated stage actor Morris Applebaum (Falk) summons his three grown children to his Manhattan apartment for a festive shindig no one will ever forget. Because when the party’s over, Morris intends to make his “final exit.” No, he’s not ill or suffering from depression; he just wants to go out the way he’s lived: on his own terms. Now it’s up to his hilariously angst-ridden offspring to put aside their own excess baggage and convince Morris that it ain’t over till the fat lady sings!
