i was at first a bit reluctant with this movie ,because it includes adults being a little "loose ".... this is about a group of people deciding to spent their retirement in india .... the broschure promising a luxury time .... well , is over the top exagerating .... and thats just the beginning .... but the ones who decide to make the best of it and adapt ... find that the whole situation gives them something ne to look forward to ...in the end ... dreams of luxury go out the window ... and they learn to quit complaining and start living under more exotic circumstance than in good ole england .... a good movie to realize life does not have to end at retirement age ...the best exotic time might yet be ahead of you .... IF you dare to start over ....
oohh and the second best exotic marigold hotel is even whackier ....you will want it !!!!

The premise is a little unbelievable (a group of older, pretty-conservative types decide to spend their retirement in India), but if you choose to accept the premise at face value, it is a great story. I especially liked the underlying messages of fresh starts in old age, reconciliation, acceptance of endings as well as beginnings, and of course the overall theme of trying things outside your comfort zone. This one will make you laugh, but it will also make you think.
