#LoveBlooms at the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel…and a $50 Giveaway!

OK, I am not much of a movie goer any longer.  I watched the red carpet prior to the Oscars
last Sunday, but turned off the Oscars early…simply because I was not that
familiar with the top movies….and did not get why Neil Patrick Harris would walk
out on stage in his underwear!  But,
every now and then something comes along which lures me to the theater.

The Second Best Exotic
Marigold Hotel
is one movie I am really looking forward to!  It opens next weekend with a cast including
Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and Richard Gere! 
The trailer made me smile (did I mention Richard Gere!)…so I think this
is one I will attend during my Spring Break.

Now, just to get you excited about the movie, here is a fun
giveaway from the promoters…you can win a $50 VISA Gift Card for your next big
adventure, and some fun memorabilia from the movie…Hotel Key Chain, tote bag, and
DVD of the first film “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”
  Just enter on the Rafflecopter below and the
winner will be announced next Thursday, March 6.

Here is the trailer…looks fun…and here is the official movie


EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s
making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent
marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai).  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). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined
the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla
pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle)
are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia
Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who
may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie
Smith), the keeper of everyone’s secrets. As the demands of a traditional
Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents

This looks like a joyful, hopeful celebration of life….let’s all go enjoy it!

Have a fun Friday!!

  1. I have watched trailers for this movie with interest, due to the cast. I am not a movie-goer either. My favorite movie genre is the great films from the late 1930's/1940's, and I will always take time to watch these. This one did pique my interest, however. Not sure I'd go to see it, but maybe!

  2. Good Afternoon Pamela, I am so excited as I am also going to the cinema to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. I so enjoyed the first film that I cannot wait to see the second. I saw an interview with Judi Dench and Dev Patel and they said they had so much fun making the film. My daughter lives in India and she is coming home next week so we are going to watch the film together.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best Wishes

  3. "Lordy, Lordy, have mercy over my ovary!" (I've only one left! lol) Richard Gere and Liam Neeson together, on one big screen… Though I'm not much of a film-goer or TV-watcher, I just might have to hook up with a few girlfriends for this one! Or maybe talk Hubby into a romantice night out. <3
