The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Yesterday was "girls day out" where I joined a couple of friends for lunch and a movie in Monterey. We went to see "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," and it was even more charming than the first one ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel").  If you haven't seen these movies, I recommend them! The first one is on pay-per-view on TV, the second one is in the theaters.

Here is the trailor:

I love movies that not only provide good laughs throughout, but also provide substance and words to more serious thoughts circuluating in my subconscious mind. Here are some of the quotes from these movies that stuck in my heart:

Evelyn: The only real failure is the failure to try. And the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment. As we always must. We came here, and we tried. All of us, in our different ways. Can we be blamed for feeling we're too old to change? Too scared of disappointment to start it all again? We get up every morning, we do our best. Nothing else matters.

Evelyn: But it's also true that the person who risks nothing, does nothing; has nothing. All we know about the future is that it will be different. But, perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same. So, we must celebrate the changes. Because, as someone once said "Everything will be all right in the end. And if it's not all right, then trust me, it's not yet the end."

Evelyn: [about their new environment] Initially you're overwhelmed. But gradually you realize it's like a wave. Resist, and you'll be knocked over. Dive into it, and you'll swim out the other side.

Sonny: Everything will be all right in the end... if it's not all right then it's not yet the end. 

EvelynHow many new lives can we have? As many as we like!

Enjoy your weekend! Enjoy your life!
