THE SEC­OND BEST MARIGOLD HO­TEL

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - DC

Di­rected by John Mad­den. Star­ring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Dev Pa­tel, Celia Im­rie, Pene­lope Wil­ton, Ron­ald Pickup, Diana Hard­cas­tle, Tamsin Greig, Richard Gere, David Strathairn Well, they re­ally are tempt­ing fate with that ti­tle. One half ex­pects the poster to carry a tagline such as “will do well enough” or “if you’ve noth­ing bet­ter to do with your af­ter­noon”. Any­way, the sec­ond film in the grey-pound cy­cles re­unites the lik­able stars for di­min­ish­ing re­turns. Bizarrely, the plot, for long sec­tions, plays like the Ho­tel In­spec­tors episode of Fawlty Tow­ers with Gere in the Bernard Crib­bins role. PG cert, gen re­lease, 122 min
