Year: 2015
Genre: Comedy and Drama
Conclusion: 2/5
Did we really need a second Marigold Hotel film?  I didn’t find it as funny as the first one. I enjoyed the first one a lot more because it was so original and also very funny. I didn’t really find myself laughing as much as I thought I would in this. The one person that makes this film is Richard Gere. He has always got a twinkle in his eyes. They bought Richard Gere in but felt that in the end they didn’t really know what to do with his character or how to develop on it. Maggie Smith didn’t have that many good one liners. She didn’t look quite herself. Amazing that all of the characters came back for the second time. It was like seeing old friends you hadn’t seen for years. The script wasn’t as good as the first one. It was far too long for what it needed to be. It was the full two hours and could have easily been an hour and a half. There were a lot of scenes that could have been cut or were not needed. All too very predictable. I also found that there was too many story-lines all going on at once. It was very confusing. I just hope that they don’t do a Marigold Hotel 3.
