4 of 5

“..there's comfort food and there are comfort movies. In Lasse Hallstrom's "The Hundred-Foot Journey," you get a full helping of both. And guess what? It's all very comforting..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
3.5 of 5

“..there are no surprises - nothing off the menu - in this tasty and tasteful feel-good dramedy about clashing cultures and cuisines, but fans of "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" will no doubt find it palatable..”
by Bruce Ingram [Chicago Sun-Times]
2.5 of 4

“..the result is light and tasty, just not as special as it could have been..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 4

“..the movie is at times too sentimental and the storyline is neither original nor surprising, but the production as a whole gains points for its unalloyed charm. This is one dish that has been cooked well enough to satisfy..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 4

“..from the director of "Chocolat" comes this crowd-pleasing souffle. Mirren's icy matriarch is terrific, even if the rest is mostly air..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

“.."The Hundred-Foot Journey" manages to be a full meal, using all the ingredients at its disposal..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
