THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a comedy drama about the elderly residents of a hotel in India trying to open a second branch.

Language

There is some mild bad language, with uses of 'bloody', 'piss', 'bollocks' and 'bugger'.

Sex

There are occasional mild sex references as characters discuss past loves and current relationships. One woman comments, "Have mercy on my ovaries", when she sees a handsome new arrival. There are also references to 'pimping' someone out to impress a guest, couples ending up in bed together, and bedrooms being needed at a clubhouse in case guests 'get fortunate'.

Other issues include some very brief and very mild threat as a woman is nearly struck by a rickshaw.
