Overview

A feisty octogenarian on the verge of his ninetieth birthday invites his three grown children to his upcoming birthday celebration with the explicit understanding that when the festivities end, so does his life, in a dark but light-hearted family comedy directed by Jeff Hare and starring Peter Falk. Morris (Falk) has lived a full life, but now the time has come to end his impressive run. When Morris goes to mortal extremes to reunite his three estranged children, his morbid declaration helps his offspring to realize that, even in old age, the importance of one individual should never be underestimated. David Paymer, Laura San Giacomo, and Judge Reinhold co-star in the one comedy that proves you're never too old to stir up a bit of mischief.

    I Also Recommend:

    On Stage.

    *Great script and entertaining acting by Peter Falk, Laura San Giacomo (from "Stuart Saves His Family") David Paymer, and Judge Reinhold. This is the story of a disconnected family with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Enjoyed it! If you enjoy family antics and family dynamics this is good for that. Also see "Stuart Saves His Family" and "Everybody's Fine."
