Movie is entertaining. Has a lot of dry type humor. Probably more enjoyable for middle age viewers than younger.

Lovely film. Addressed culture, love and homosexuality. Of course, Bill Nighy is one of my favorite actors.

I didn't know what to expect before watching this, but I laughed a lot throughout the entire film. There were sad parts, but mostly this movie was upbeat and very enjoyable.

Enjoyed this film. Didn't know what to expect but I love stories about people and their relationships and this ticked all the boxes.

I liked this movie, and can only imagine being old and moving somewhere completely different, exciting and scary all at the same time.

It was a very good movie that could have been great if the ending had been handled differently. It was too corny for my liking.

What a gem of a film. Far better than QUARTET (which I liked.) Judi Dench was brilliant but Dev Patel is the crazy glue that gels this memorable story.

This was the story of several individuals who decide to retire to the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel in India. Each character has a story to tell and work out for themselves, sometimes with help from the other characters. Don't let my 3 & 1/2 star rating put you off. That was only b/c I thought it ran a little long. The acting was superb and the stories were intriguing.
