loved it! I just recently retired and it was so right on. More power to those of us with courage and foresight to plan our futures and live them instead of having our future rule us and beat us down.

It was with tremendous anticipation that I clamored to see "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (for the elderly and beautiful); it happily exceeded my expectations.
Director John Madden gives us a pecan, a delectable treat to savor long after imbibing, improving with a second helping. Every character is beautifully defined, refined, original but recognizable.
Regardless of your chronological state "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" depicts a realistic, hilarious, joyful, unabashed romp of filmmaking at its pinnacle.
"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" deserves a universal audience and stellar accolades for all people and places involved.
FOUR & 1/2 STARS!!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this film. It's a poignant story about a group of people at a low time in their lives who really "find" themselves in one of the most colorful parts of India. The acting was as I expected "superb" and it made me chuckle, laugh and cry. The direction, writing and cinematography perfect. Suitable for any age.Run, don't walk to buy tickets!

Movie was very enjoyable. Cast was terrific. A little predictable and some moments were a bit cliche. However, the cast was so good it didn't matter.
