Movie Info

The story of legendary performer Carol Channing's life is as colorful as the lipstick on her big, bright smile. In Carol Channing: Larger Than Life, director Dori Berinstein, with co-writer Adam Zucker, captures the magic and vivacity of the 90-year-old icon - both onstage and off...past and present. The film is both an intimate love story and a rarefied journey inside Broadway's most glamorous era. It is, above all, a look at an inspiring, incomparable and always entertaining American legend. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Carol Channing: Larger Than Life

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (16)

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

March 15, 2012 | Rating: 3/4

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.

February 3, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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

February 2, 2012 | Rating: 4/5

[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.

February 2, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Not merely affectionate but cheerfully indulgent.

February 2, 2012 | Rating: 3/5

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