Synopsis >

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. Winner of numerous awards, Checking Out is joyous, funny, brilliantly written and acted - a complete pleasure! (Arizona Republic)
