“The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”: Our Recipe for Comedy Tikka Masala

PG-13 for one nation’s crippling poverty, another nation’s crotchety old people, and the instant comedy that results

Release Date: May 4, 2012


PG-13 for Ugly Cast (or, as the kids are calling it these days, PG:13-FUC) is proud to present its famous family recipe forĀ Comedy Tikka Masala. Try it at home!


Seven (7) old Brits
One (1) fresh-faced young Indian
One (1) dilapidated hotel, not unsanitary
A handful of platitudes


Place old Brits into dilapidated hotel, and mix with fresh-faced young Indian. Wait for comic misunderstandings to develop (10-15 minutes), and maintain at a low, farcical simmer for 45 minutes.

Then, raise drama level to “high,” hastily tie up character arcs, and slather on platitudes.

Serves 4-6 million.
