The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel represents genteel filmmaking at its finest.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Basically, there's just too much crammed into "Marigold Hotel" for any of it to have impact. It may work as comfort food for old folks, but a bit less may have yielded a great deal more.

The movie itself is a mawkish comedy-drama-romance, but the astounding cast makes it feel like a night on the West End.

"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is an Indian dish for day-trippers. Lacking beef or sufficient spice, it's nonetheless colorful comfort food.

Se por um lado merece créditos por enfocar o drama e a comédia da terceira idade, por outro não deixa de desapontar ao apostar num roteiro frágil cujos equívocos acabam sendo disfarçados simplesmente graças à qualidade de seu elenco formidável.

The old pros elevate Hotel's otherwise pat screenplay into that sweet spot where predictability fails to negate pleasure.

The superb cast still cannot save a weak story.

[It] follows in the footsteps of countless other quaint, lengthily titled dollops of cinematic comfort food aimed at well-settled audiences looking for a little vicarious, AARP-approved spunk. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

There's little that's surprising about the film - everyone ends up pretty much where you'd guess - but that predictable quality becomes part of the pleasure of watching it, like a book that's happily reread.

If nothing else, "Marigold Hotel" is a chance to watch British acting royalty work together in a film that has nothing to do with wizards or Muggles. Yet the result is no less fantasy than "Harry Potter."

By dropping a classic "Brits abroad" story into modern, urban India, "Marigold" brings chaotic energy to what would otherwise be merely cozy and predictable.

"Eat Gray Love"...the whole enterprise [is] too platitudinous, but with powerhouse actors like Dench, Nighy and Wilkinson, even a critic can agree it's better to be plucky than a sour stick-in-the-mud.

They're stuck with a script, by Ol Parker, that's stuffed with contrivance and cliché, and doggedly repetitive as it tracks its characters' efforts to find new love and adapt to new surroundings.

Your parents probably don't want to go to The Avengers this weekend (and that's okay!) but audiences can do far worse for themselves than to take a quick cinematic trip to John Madden's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

As mild, comforting and vaguely colonial as beans on toast, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel brings together some of Britain's top-shelf acting treasures for a story of late-life awakenings and self-discovery in India.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10

Pretty much anyone with an AARP card will relate to this movie in some way and therefore adore it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 4, 2012
An esteemed ensemble cast of British veterans elevates this modestly charming saga.
May 4, 2012
They're not super; they're superannuated 'Avengers.' If I had to put money on which film would still be standing in theaters come Labor Day, it would be this one.

The witty script, Eastern locale, and tony cast may summon up memories of the old Merchant-Ivory films.
May 4, 2012
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is an ersatz experience, a commingling of forced uplift and exotica, but it's moving anyway.
