The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel made more than $135 million worldwide while offering a handful of finely seasoned veteran actors a chance to prove that Hollywood doesn't always have to be youth-obsessed -- and this weekend, the old gang is back together (with a couple of new additions) for the sequel, the sensibly titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. This gives us the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to returning Exotic star Judi Dench, whose long list of well-received roles includes everything from Merchant Ivory period pieces to a long stint as M in the James Bond franchise.

It's time for Total Recall!
