The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel


Rating: PG, for some language and suggestive content.

It’s hard to imagine why any young people would want to see this movie, a sequel to the 2012 hit about British retirees living in a run-down Indian resort. But let’s say, theoretically, that you and your family have been snowed in for days, you’re desperate to escape the house and this is the only movie you can all see together. It’s fine. It’s not good, but it’s fine. Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy are among the acting greats returning for round two, which includes all kinds of wacky misunderstandings and mistaken identities. There is the suggestion that certain elderly characters are having sex with each other as well as the suggestion that other elderly characters are enjoying dalliances on the side. And the prospect of death looms large at all times — albeit for comic effect — including daily roll calls to ensure that all of the Marigold Hotel’s residents have made it through the night. All in all, though, this is pretty harmless for all ages.
