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]

LATEST REVIEWS

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan’s Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
