Synopsis for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel:
I thought this movie was as very good as the first one (probably even better) and even more funny (than the first) with more humorous one-liners. I remember a lot of memorable and random funny lines in this movie than the first one. Also, this second film, even if you didn't see the first one, works well by itself.
The great ensemble cast with Britain's finest and very talented vets such as familiar faces Judi Dench (as Evelyn), Maggie Smith (as Muriel), Penelope Wilton (as Jean), Bill Nighy (as Douglas), Celia Imrie (as Madge), Tena Desae (Sunaina), Lillete Dubey (Mrs. Kapoor), and Dev Patel (from Slumdog Millionaire...as Sonny) returned in this second equally wonderful film with new additions Richard Gere (as Guy), David Strathairm (Ty Burley), and Tamzin Greig (as Lavinia).
In this sequel to the first successful and surprise hit movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which was based on the novel These Foolish Things by Deborah Moggach (screenwriter of Joe Wright's first feature film, Pride & Prejudice), 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).
Here are a few memorable (and hilarious) quotes from TSBEMH...
- "If you like it. You should put a ring on it." -Madge
- "Lord, have mercy on my ovaries." -Madge
- "I couldn't resist the chance to come out and visit the old crumbling ruins and see how the hotel was doing." -Jean
- "I'm sorry, did you say something?" -Muriel
"I don't know why I tell you anything." -Evelyn
