Hilarious and delightful.

A fantastic voyage through the life of one of Broadway's shinning stars. Quirky, funny and at times as campy as Carol herself, it has moments that are both touching and revealing.

The documentary is okay, but, the subject is entertaining to say the least . . .

She had it all: talent for comedy, drama, singing, dancing, acting, and not upstaging her co-stars till the proper moment. Oh, and incredible legs with a nice face and an unmistakable voice. No one deserves to be flattered with caricatures and mimics more.

CAROL CHANNING: LARGER THAN LIFE is a happy surprise. A film sure to put a huge smile on your face. Not the most insightful documentary, but also not a slick lovefest, LTL shows that there truly are amazing indefatigable people in this world. Carol Channing is a force of nature and this film gives us 90 minutes in the presence of this very much living legend.

It's a total puff piece love letter. But I doubt there is much Else but good to say about Ms. Channing.

This is a truly enjoyable film to watch, especially for us who adore the American musical theatre. There is no question that that Carol Channing is a legend and icon. Only after watching this lovingly made valentine are we bothered by the sad undercurrent of Ms. Channing's Pagliacci-like life. She is presented as always laughing on the outside and making others laugh as they admire her talent. Alas, we learn in hints throughout the film how dreadfully sad a life she led on the inside. The saddest part of the film is not mentioned. Shortly after filming, her beloved Harry passed away. Brava Ms. Channing!

Who says "documentary" and "entertainment" don't go together?
One of the best films I've seen in years.
Truly memorable and poignant.
Five stars plus.
Can't wait to see it again.

Can't wait for this film to be released in a theater near me.
