Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is aimed at adults -- grandparents, actually. But that doesn't mean that teenagers can't see it, because there are lots of worthwhile inter-generational lessons about class issues, travel, friendship, tolerance, and what constitutes a healthy marriage. Expect some language (one "f--k," plus a few "s--t"s and other curses), a few racist comments (which are clearly portrayed as ignorant), and sexuality (a young couple kisses passionately, one character reminisces about a gay love affair, and another two are fixated on finding romance) -- including a couple of erection jokes. But with its stellar cast and humorous take on adventure in the "golden years," there's no reason teens can't join their parents in watching.

Sexual Content

A few of the couples flirt, and there are jokes about Viagra-like pills. Sonny and Suneina kiss passionately, and in one scene she strips to get into bed with him, only to discover that he's not the person in the bed.


One character dies unexpectedly.


One "f--k," plus a few uses of "s--t," "bollocks," "crap," "hell," "sod it," "oh my God," etc. One character makes several racist remarks at the beginning of the movie, when she refuses to see a black and then South Asian doctor. She wants an "English" (white) doctor.

Social Behavior

There are some wonderful messages in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel -- like that love shouldn't be based on class or family background and that it's never too late to try something new, change your life, or learn about a different culture.
