    Heartwarming and full of self-deprecating humor, albeit somewhat over-long and repetitive.
  2. The dancers are prone to feel-good sound bites, but Ms. Berinstein also takes the time to draw out their back stories, making for a sweet group portrait of ordinary folks who found a late splash of fame.
  3. Gotta Dance is a feel-better movie. Warm and cozy with just the tiniest dollop of tension.

    This small journey of self-discovery, even at an advanced age, mirrors the larger one Berinstein so fondly addresses here and leaves you with that oh-so-rare but genuine warm and fuzzy feeling.

    Would be just another disposable, albeit touching, distraction if its subtext didn't hint that growing old in this ageist society is a bitch.

    A chipper documentary sure to please seniors.
