Cover picture for the articleSo says Rita Moreno about the hoopla surrounding an upcoming birthday, in the opening seconds of a new documentary about the Puerto Rican-born actress, dancer and singer (except she uses a less printable, more colorful synonym for baloney). Her comment sets the tone for what turns out to be a funny, occasionally foul-mouthed and almost startlingly frank portrait of the 89-year-old performer, who anchors "Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It" with excerpts from a long, sit-down interview in which she discusses, with refreshing candor, a laundry list of topics.
