Movie Review ~ The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

I went to see The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. When I arrived at the theater, there was no one under 45 in the audience. I thought "crap -- another waste of money". I was wrong.

I am a geek, and I am used to outsourcing in India. The premise of this movie, is that care for the aged is outsourced to India where it is cheaper. Seniors who cannot afford to retire can do so in India. It was an intriguing idea.

The story is rich in subtext, and the scenes of India are amazing. The movie is worth seeing just for the travelogue.

In places the story is a bit predictable, and a little too neat and cheesy, but overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was extremely funny and it is a feel good movie. Definitely worth seeing.
