If You're Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast

About The Film

Irrepressible comic legend Carl Reiner and other celebrity nonagenarians regard the secret of vitality and longevity, in IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE OBIT, EAT BREAKFAST. This Hollywood reunion-like collection of delightful, freewheeling conversations challenges notions about aging. Joining the camaraderie are Mel Brooks, Dick Van Dyke, Kirk Douglas, Norman Lear and Betty White, and non-showbiz cohorts who still greet each morning raring to go. Offering years of insights and anecdotes, these spry seniors are as sharp, vigorous and engaged as ever, demonstrating there is still plenty of life to live after 90. Bookended by swinging performances of "The Best is Yet to Come" by Tony Bennett, and Oscar-winning composer Alan Bergman’s "Just Getting Started," this inspirational, genial gem shows how the twilight years can truly be the happiest and most rewarding.
