If there’s one type of actor I love it is an older English actor, the more honours the better. Put a Dame in a cast list and I will be queuing up on opening night. There’s something about an actor with a huge career behind them who continues to produce quality work that I find irresistible… in a cinematic sense of course.
When I heard about The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a comedy about seven British pensioners having a romp in India, I could hardly believe my eyes. Dames all over the place! Meet me after the trailer:
How much fun does that look? Providing the best jokes aren’t all in this trailer it looks like we have a British comedy starring a plethora of our older stars, showing the young up-and-comers how it’s done. Even more exciting is that this film stars my all time favourite “National Treasure”, or rather an amazing combination of six. With a cast like this I feel the trailer should simply list the cast while rousing music plays, think Burn After Reading.
Sorry Ronald Pickup, I have no idea who you are.
No. If I can’t pronounce it, I don’t want to eat it.
