Heartwarming and full of self-deprecating humor, albeit somewhat over-long and repetitive.

It's a charmer in its own right.

Despite its engaging message and lovable stars, Gotta Dance is more a TV newsmagazine segment than a full-length feature.

Dori Berinstein's enjoyable documentary is about a 60-and-older hip-hop dance team.

Although the movie's editing and photography are lively, and its subjects are interesting, life didn't cooperate by offering up much drama.

Any viewers also in need of an attitude adjustment need only witness these lockin' and poppin' sages struggle without complaint to conquer creaky joints, impaired rhythmic instincts, and complicated choreography.
