Do you love old British people AND India? Well boy old boy, do we gotzz the movie for you!!! It’s about old British people IN India!!!!! The only thing more awesome than that is old Indian people IN Indiana!!! Not really, and not really either for the movie about old British people IN India. The old British people IN India movie is called The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and the only thing exotic in John Madden‘s screen take on some book not of the same name is… nothing
The old British people is be Judi Dench (being all Denchy), Bill Nighy (being mildly Nighyyy), Maggie Smith (she looks like walking death, even though she’s wheelchair bound in the flick), Tom Wilkinson (is he old?), Penelope Wilton (wait, that wasn’t Lynn Redgrave? wait, Lynn Redgrave is dead????), Celia Imrie (she kinda skeeves us out) and some dude named Ronald Pickup (who seems kinda awesome!!!). These old British people are wooed to the hotel in the title that’s run by Dev Patel, because he needs to co-star in some movie, right? And guess what, the hotel is not as advertised!! OH MY!, but wait…
AND GUESS WHAT, THESE GREAT BRITAINERSERS AINT IN GREAT BRITAIN NO MOOOO!!!! THEY IN INDIA, SO IMAGINE THE FISH OUT OF WATERNESSNESS THAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN OLD BRITISH PEOPLE ARE IN INDIA!!!??? Don’t imagine too hard, cause the movie doesn’t imagine too hard neither. It’s juss a 2 houred slow ride of old British people IN India, being British, IN India. That about slums it up. Zzzzzz??? Kinda, but in a sorta watchable way. maybe? DENCHY!!!
