Review of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

So, we watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel tonight for Family Movie Night.  It was The Girl's turn, and her choice -- although it was just a mild preference (we're running low on movies that interest her).  But:  she liked the movie.

The movie is about seven retirement-aged Brits who, for one reason or another -- but for most of them, financial - they retire to a retirement home in India (because it's cheaper than remaining in the UK).  A subplot is that the hotel manager -- who (as near as I can tell) inherited the failed hotel from his father, although his brothers are co-owners -- is trying to make it a success, even though his enthusiasm outstrips his business abilities.

Good acting, good dialogue, well-made; a good story.

Totally worth watching.

I think there was some bad language.
