An award-winning, all-star cast, led by Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Tom Wilkinson, lights up this “buoyant comedy laced with genuine emotion”. When seven cash-strapped seniors decide to “outsource” their retirement to a resort in far-off India, friendship and romance blossom in the most unexpected ways. Smart, life-affirming and genuinely charming, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a “true classic that reminds us that it’s never too late to find love and a fresh beginning at any age”.

    Simply Fabulous! I was in India in the early 90s, this film captured so many of the precious gems. Well done cast, crew, director, and music score! Thank You, India.
  • Just awful!

    It just wasn't funny! Within minutes you knew this was a bunch of big names doing a movie for a paycheck. When the mundane cliche "If she dies, she dies..." came out as if it was somentous laugh I knew we had a loser on our hands. If I hadn't paid for it I might have given it 2 stars.
  • Horrible!!!!

    Glad I saw it at a cheap, old time, theater that charged me $3 instead of $10

    Very funny and also typical dry British wit. I laughed almost throughout the entire movie. A definite one to see

    I cried, I laughed, I can’t say enough great things about this movie! I would rate this in the top 5 of all time fantastic must see movies! The ensemble cast is beyond perfection! Talented, and full of life, this is a movie that you can’t just write a review to explain how good it is. Watch without expectation; and ENJOY!
  • Warm and uplifting

    I found the story very heart warming and uplifting. But. honestly, who can watch Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith and Dev Patel together in one movie and not enjoy every moment of it! :) If you love British art, their acting, style and intelligence of characters - you will absolutely LOVE this film!

    I always wonder what good actors must feel like when they're on the set of such a poorly directed film. This was supposed to be a comedy, but it turned out to be a sad commentary on some very sad, elderly people. Lots of predictable cliches about getting old, and John Madden never fully develops the main characters. Limp writing and weak direction. I kept thinking "this is going to get better," but it never did.
