    I did, and I thought it was one of the best movies I've seen in quite a while.

    I thought it was cute but I found the book ("These Foolish Things") had far more depth.

    Still I'm a huge fan of Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and Tom Wilkenson, and I really like the rest of the British cast, so it was a no-brainer that I'd see the film.

    Yep, saw it and loved it! An insightful yet lighthearted look into ageing gracefully and making the best of bad situations. Mostly never giving up on your dreams. Best quote: Everything will be alright in the end, if it isn't alright then it can't be the end!

    Saw it tonight, and was def. not expecting it to rouse such an emotional reaction in me. I cried real man tears. -from both eyes. -at once. I agree with the best quote. I now want to read the book it was based on as well..

    I need to get the book! I agree the movie was quite enjoyable. Good to see the actors you cite, and the kid from Slumdog Millionaire was entertaining as well.

    I want to watch this too. Our best Thesp's are in it and some of the comments here make it sound like a really emotional movie.

    Judie and Maggie in India ? What's not to like ? icon_biggrin.gif

    I saw it. A nice feel good flick, even if the storylines get wrapped up a little too conveniently in the last 15 minutes.

    Enjoyed it....worth seeing. Downton Abbey's Penelope Wilton is very good as is the Abbey's Maggie Smith...and you gotta love Dame Dench!

    I was surprised that everybody was so enthusiastic about it. Although the acting was first rate, I thought the characters were a bit cliched and the plot was a by Hollywood. Still, if you haven't seen it, is recommend it.

    Saw it and loved it lots. A great foil to all the action, smash-bang, loud noisy action flicks (which I like, BTW). Maggie Smith and Judy Dench sparkled!!

    Saw it LOVED it but agree the book (as is almost always the case with movies adapted from novels) is by far better and has much deeper meaning.
