This was a heartwarming movie. It is not perfect and it does drag a bit, but the singing and the personalities make up for it. I will forever remember the man sitting in a chair because he could not stand up, hooked up to oxygen, singing, &quot Fix You&quot by Coldplay. I ordered this as a gift for all of my family for Christmas. My 81 year old father in particular will enjoy this film.

This movie gave me a whole new view and appreciation for growing old. All I can say is I'm going to find a group like this one to join in my old age. Great, fantastic, refreshing, I smiled, I laughed, I cried.

This documovie was just amazing. I saw it first with my daughter. We laughed and cried. She took her entire family to see it and even the ten year old loved it. It was so inspiring to see seniors struggling to stay viable in their twilight years. It was heart wrenching to see what the aging process does to our minds and our bodies and it was exhilarating to see that you can't keep the spirit down!

I was never one to say &quot I hope I die before I get old&quot . I have embraced what aging brings. That said, I am almost half the age of these incredible human beings. This movie touched me deeply. I have a newfound appreciation for my elders and would love to share this profound, sweet, touching film with everyone I know. It also makes one realize just how fragile and special this life of ours is. I will also tell my customers about this film and recommend it highly (a retail store).

I agree with the other reviewers. My mom is 88 with mid level Alzheimer's, and she really got into this movie when we saw it in the theatre. I bought it the day it was available on DVD. Really, you will buckle a few times. When the group sang for the prisoners out in the exercise yard, they were all "like look at the cute old farts coming to sing for us. What, like 'O Suzanna'?" HA, they were all swideswiped, transformed. Give this movie a chance. I hope the movie will revolutionize music programs in senior centers and nursing homes. You wouldn't believe my mother can't tell me what the names are of knife/fork/spoon, but she can dive totally into deeply felt and performed music, especially if she can see it. Very therapeutic.

I've shown the "Young at Heart" DVD to friends several times, and loaned it out two or three times, all to rave reviews of loving it, too. I live in a retirement commun ity and it will be shown to the residents here in the near future. The members of our 30 voiced choral group will LOVE seeing this DVD. Thanks. Lyn Jameson

What a wonderfully moving movie! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll leave this movie delighted and energized. These "young" rockers are totally amazing!

I saw it in the theatres and had to buy it for myself -- and I don't buy many movies anymore. This is a documentary about a real senior citizens' rock choir. Really, because you just can't make this stuff up. It is inspiring, funny, and heartbreaking. Be prepared to be crying from laughter (music videos like "I want to be sedated" are a scream) and from sadness because not everyone is alive by the end. If you haven't seen this, don't delay! You won't be scared about the "twilight years" after seeing what these people can do!

This is a heartwarming documentary about a choir of seniors (70s and older, for the most part) who sing pop and punk hits from recent decades with charm and verve. The filmmakers introduce viewers in some depth to several choir members and the director. Their interviews add substance and nuance, and some of their insights are key to appreciating the drama that unfolds as several choir members become ill or worse. I also prize this film for its affirmation of the life-giving power of the arts to enrich, strengthen and revitalize us, even when we are not at the height of our powers.
