For all of the criticism about this screenplay being too contrived and self assured, there is a life affirming heart beating here, and of course it doesn't hurt that the beating heart is in the hands of some of the best actors in the biz.
Sure, you probably will come away from t...

After all the hype on tv trailers and the media hype, this turned out to be quite the dissapointment. The acting was good and the choice of people to play each part was also good, but overall story was rather poor. Maybe a Sr Citizens movie. 3 stars 2-24-13

Seven British retirees relocate to the titular establishment in India, run by a hospitable but bumbling young entrepreneur. A great cast makes for a pleasant if predictable entry in the inspiration "cute old folks find a reason to grind out a few more years" subgenre.

"If your a huge movie fan, you can not pass up a cast of greats like this. I REALLY enjoyed the film. I know it's not going to be for a large group of movie watchers, but movie fans will flock to see these greats on screen together in one film. I LOVE Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bi...

A pitch perfect comedy with a pitch perfect all-star cast. A smart, very charming and wonderfully funny movie that's breathtaking and heartwarming all the way to the end. A true classic. A masterpiece from Director, John Madden. A marvelous, enjoyable and gorgeously crafted enter...

It largely avoids most of the intense schmaltz the premise threatens, a serious achievement in itself, but even then brings freshness and emotion to cliches (from fractured marriages to postcard imagery of India) when they are wheeled out, and the cast are basically the ones to t...
