The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

I don't normally like sequels - they are rarely as good as the original - happily this one is the exception! It is funny, it has a plot, it has pathos, it has romance and intrigue. It continues from where the first one left off so you really do need to see that one first or you will be slightly bewildered.

There was such a lot of media noise about Richard Gere being it but he really had only a small cameo role and that was not as good as one would expect from him. Judi Dench only ever plays Judi Dench, so no disappointments there. The one who steals the film (just as she did in the first one ) is Maggie Smith - she is brilliant.

However, film makers take note - it has said it all now - do NOT make a third !

Haven't heard of that one for years, I vaguely remember it, must remember to look it up again.

The first one came out three years ago - the 2nd was released early this year, Leigh, so they should be still available.

Only three years? I'm sure I've seen it, but didn't think it was that recently.
