The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: A group of British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, they are forever transformed by their shared experiences, discovering that life and love can begin again when you begin let go of the past. From the director of Shakespeare in Love and featuring an all-star British cast, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a charming, life-affirming comedy drama about life, love and new beginnings. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it's making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy - posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone's secrets.

This was too diffuse. Too plotty (as with later series of LoSW). Uplifted, of course, by the fine actors, although I suspect that perhaps they were just walking through it this time. Was it really necessary to drag in the excellent Richard Gere? That must have been a commercial decision. And I felt that the dance sequences were over-extended.
I give it 2½ out of 5.
