MOVIE: THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL

By | March 12th, 2015|Comedy, Drama, Movies, Musicals, Romance|1 Comment

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is definitely second best--as most sequels are, but this cast and locale still manage to make the film a delightful, if passing, fancy. Richard Gere in the mix (yes, the hunk is getting on) adds an extra bit of spice. The old gang has returned, an elderly but colorful band of wandering misfits who have taken up [...]
