It was an alright English romantic comedy evolved around elderly people in India (that was the strangest part actually). I learned that there is a sequel so I'll probably be watching that soon.

lots of old people go to India and stay in an old Hotel. It was better when I watched it for a second time. The characters are good and well acted and the dialogue has some wit in it, but overall it's a bit tired and predictable.

Funny, tender, and marvelously acted. Light-hearted entertainment.

Really good film. Some poignant words (spoken by Judi Dench) at the end. Not as funny as the UK tv series take offs, or as funny as I heard it was meant to be. Nice bunch of characters and scenarios and not hard to follow. Would recommend.

A movie I've watched more than twice. I enjoy the characters, their challenges & triumphs. It's probably not as relevant to movie goers born post Baby Boomer generation, but for those of us who are within that range, this movie is great entertainment.

touching tender and oddly titillating $9.50

Not good at all. Dev Patel does not know how to act.

Really sweet movie with plenty of witty and dry British humour

"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is a weird, but charming mixture of comedy, romance, and drama that works mostly due to its older cast of seniors despite the rather flat story they're put in.

REALLY good acting from dev patel. somehow he out-performed the masterclass of judi dench and maggie smith. it helps that he got so many one liner's but that's thanks to the great writing by ol parker. each of the supporting cast also earned their pay.

An enjoyable story even if some of the characters are grumpy. And it's mixed with young love as well. It's easy to put yourself into the semi-desperate positions in which the characters find themselves. Plus there is the immersion into India's culture and mass of humanity.

An alright movie with a pretty good ending.

I rather enjoyed it. Once of those, a bit slow films to watch in the evening when you don't want to watch anything with adventure or explosions.
Good story, I liked how it moved along and how the characters interacted. Happy bits and sad bits too. Good quotes and lessons to take away.
Visually it was ...somewhat charming I suppose. Colourful yet grimy.
Good acting too...but then again they had really good actors here.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is an excellent film. It is about British retirees who travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Judi Dench and Maggie Smith give amazing performances. The screenplay is well written. John Madden did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watch this motion picture because of the humor and drama. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a must see.

A good romp that didn't take itself too seriously. Good cast all adding something to the plot. Dame Judy is amazing.

I found it charming, funny, exciting, well-acted, feel-good, beautifully shot, and well narrated. Yes some parts could've been more in depth, but I really liked how they kept going back and forth among characters. A movie about older people is both bold and refreshing in this industry. Movie makes you want to go to India.
