Checking Out

Directed by Jeff Hare

USA | 94 minutes | 2005

On the eve of his 90th birthday eccentric celebrated thespian Morris Applebaum (Peter 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 plans to take his "final exit". No he's not ill or unduly depressed; 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!
