There's more than stage talk in Dori Berinstein's documentary: Hiding within it is a remarkable, moving love story.

There's little sense of the Carol Channing beneath the overdone makeup - if there is one - except maybe to celebrate her fourth marriage to a high school classmate who died recently.

Carol Channing is 91 going on 7. That is meant as a compliment.

[Captures] the essence of Carol as one of those creatures of the theater that when you see her onstage, you know you've seen something special.

Let's hope Dolly finds her way back to center stage and never goes away again.

There's not much beyond all the fawning, but the effusively talented Channing more than deserves the gush.

Dori Berinstein's desultory, fawning profile of the nonagenarian performer devotes many of its padded 88 minutes to Channing's greatest success, playing the title yenta in Hello, Dolly! on Broadway in the 1960s.

A terrifically entertaining, smartly constructed trip down memory lane with one of the American stage's most legendary troupers.

The soft touch makes perfect sense, though anyone not already lined up at the altar of old-school Broadway will find the film slower going.

Dori Berinstein's tender but sharp portrait finds a lot of depths in the woman whom many see as a camp figure.

A celebration and a lament -- a celebration of Channing's seven decades as musical comedy star, and a lament that there's really no one like her anymore.
