"Everything will be all right in the end... if it's not all right then it's not the end."

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is an utter delight. Here is a satisfying comedy unafraid to have a heart and a brain, and it has no interest in toilet humour or cheap gags. It's one for the mature crowd, as it earns lots of belly-laughs through genuine wit and doesn't shy away from the inherent... read more

A sweet and simple comedy.

"If I can't pronounce it, I don't want to eat it."

I'm infamous for enjoying the most barbaric kinds of humour. I like gross out comedy, sex comedy, and even racial comedy. Thus, when a 'smart' comedy comes out, I usually never have any interest in seeing them. There are times when I do actually enjoy a comedy with a witty and subtle script - Up in the Air is an excellent example. T... read more

This movie has it all laughter tears, and adventure. It has a great cast, all great British actors as well as some good Indian actors. The story follows a group of British retirees who end up in India, to live the rest of their lives. All the actors did a great job, as did the director John Madden who brings the real India to the screen. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, is a real gem of a film an... read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out and eventually, I wasn’t disappointing and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Honestly, it was nothing really amazing but it was still nonetheless a really refreshing comedy served by a great cast on top of their game (Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and many others). Not long ago, I watched ‘Amour’, one of the best dramas I have seen lately, and I couldn't thinking that, even though the senior population is growing exponentially in the Western countries, there are only a very few movies focusing on them so it was a real joy to have such a delightful comedy about this forgotten section of our population. I also thought that the concept was pretty intriguing. Indeed, instead of s” read more

" 24 August + So many brilliant actors in one film + The characters, Tom Wilkinson's in particular + Many beautiful locations in India + A very emotional death scene + A very satisfying ending - But also a predictable ending - Wanted to know more of the reasons why everybody went to India, the beginning felt so rushed."
