Too many characters that are boring, irritating and offer nothing significant to distinguish each other in this overlong bore of a film.

It seemed like an artificial attempt at adding depth to an otherwise run of the mill story, that actually ended up having a million clichés. Expand

This movie wouldn't be as frustrating if not for the colossal waste of talent. A gathering of some of the best actors in the English speaking world are hamstrung by a script chock full of Anglo-Indian stereotypes and cliches.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Manipulative British starrer which has an air about it of being an important film. The actors are not served well by a script that is cliched. Plot development is also illogical, for example Maggie Smith's grouchy and tiresome character becoming all accommodating at the end. Also, the son's arranged marriage is all of a sudden conveniently thrown out of the window without so much as a pout. As if! The Indian locations, however, are gorgeous. Expand

Sous couvert d'un humour très britannique (qui n'est pas ma tasse de thé), ce film interminable a le toupet de nous faire chier pendant deux heures avec ces pauvres vieux et leurs retraites délocalisées en low cost dans un pays sous-développéSous couvert d'un humour très britannique (qui n'est pas ma tasse de thé), ce film interminable a le toupet de nous faire chier pendant deux heures avec ces pauvres vieux et leurs retraites délocalisées en low cost dans un pays sous-développé (oh pardon, je voulais dire "pays émergent" !). Choc des cultures et caricature ridicule de celles-ci, personnages grotesques, un peu de violon ici et là pour faire bonne mesure... peu importe, on a déjà décroché depuis longtemps et le troisième âge a zappé direct.
