We hear what we want to hear.
I hear the movie title "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and think, "That sounds like some A-grade sexytime action right there. Let's kill the lights."
But it's likely others would think, "That sounds like a delightful comedy featuring venerated British thespians, maybe even a dame or two. I should bring my mother."
Same goes for "Frankenweenie," Tim Burton's latest goth-family flick. It's not at all what you might think it is - at least if you're among the filthy-minded.

It's no secret that we're fond of old British people here, whether it's the red-hot "Red" star Helen Mirren or the icy-cool brilliant Gary Oldman in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." But the upcoming piece of summer counter-programming known as "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" is an absolute Anglophile's delight.

Summer movies are coming, and iconic superheroes will dominate as "Dark Knight Rises," "Avengers," and "The Amazing Spider-Man" duke it out for box office supremacy, while the sci-fi derby includes fresh takes on the "Alien" saga ("Prometheus") and Philip K.

Old people kick ass.
Okay, not all the time and maybe not most of the time, but some of the time they do, especially if they happen to be British actors. Actors like, say, "Harry Potter"'s Maggie Smith or "Pirates of the Carribean"'s Bill Nighy or "Casino Royale"'s Judi Dench or "The Debt"'s Tom Wilkinson. All old. All kicking ass.
And now all starring together in "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel." Will you still be putting out trailers this cool when you're 70? Get More »
