There's certainly a profound and valuable documentary to be made about our eldest living senior citizens. Sadly, "Walter: Lessons From the World's Oldest People" isn't it.

The filmmakers are constantly on camera, eating tacos or commenting on the interviews with insight like this: "She's just such a sweet lady. She smiles all of the time."

The leisurely, intimate [Walter] could have been truly touching but misses the mark. Starting with its misleading title, the film never finds a core message beyond that good, clean living will allow you to live a long time.
