The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (PG-13 for brief language and sexuality) ought to have been an excellent movie. Its star-studded British cast-including Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, and Dame Maggie Smith-plus its humorous premise that even old age can be outsourced to India should have equaled a hilarious and poignant look at the trials of aging and the joy of living. Unfortunately, it didn't.
