    Is “feel-good” a bad word? Critics often think so. But when a movie explores real emotions en route to its gladdening end, when it takes time to touch on serious issues along the way, it earns the right to make us feel good.

    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.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Linus Sandgren’s lush camerawork and the glittering, throbbing musical score by A. R. Rahman contribute a distinctive flavor of their own. The performances are superb.

  • James Berardinelli

    The Hundred-Foot Journey represents a pleasant diversion for those who have grown weary of traditional summer movie fare. The picture is about people and how they interact. There are no explosions or car chases.

  • Bill Zwecker

    Overall this is a solid, intelligent movie about the joys of expanding our horizons — in all directions.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The result is that this is one of those rare movies that gets better as it goes along.

  • Chris Nashawaty

    I never entirely bought the flirty détente between the two or believed in the rapturous power of a perfectly cooked sea urchin to solve the world's problems. But for two hours, at least, I swallowed it with a smile.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    A trifle bland, but with enough virtues to make it palatable to audiences who want comfort food, not a challenge, when they go to the movies.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Manages to be a satisfying meal, if not quite a feast, for famished adult audiences.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Almost embarrassingly enjoyable, despite the fact that — or maybe because — it's ridiculous in a shiny, Hollywood way.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    I wish the movie weren’t quite so sappy about the spiritually redemptive powers of fine cuisine. Sometimes a meal is just a meal.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    The Hundred-Foot Journey is elevated comfort food. The flavors aren’t complex, but it’s nourishing nonetheless.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    An amiable cast and a satisfying enough story make The Hundred-Foot Journey stick to your ribs, even if it’s hard to swallow early on. Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It would be curmudgeonly to count all the ways in which The Hundred-Foot Journey is unsurprising, unrealistic, unnecessary.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The heavy plot sauce weighs down the movie. Director Lasse Hallstrom had similar buoyancy problems in 2000's bewilderingly Oscar-nominated "Chocolat." Here he lucks out big time with Mirren and Puri, two pros who know how to lift an audience over plot hurdles and turn a merely digestable diversion into a treat.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Although the outcome is as predetermined as a prix-fixe menu, the storytelling is as smooth as goose-liver pate through a pastry nozzle.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    As the narrative approaches its desired fusion of Gallic and Indian cuisine, so too Hallstrom looks to have hit his sweet spot: the very middle of middlebrow.

    Ultimately, what comes through most forcefully in The Hundred-Foot Journey is the longing of the immigrant, the overwhelming push-pull between the need to belong and the need to assert one’s own identity.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Any movie with food as a motif runs the risk of pouring on the metaphor, and that happens here, too.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Christina Izzo

    The movie’s never tastier than when screen vets Mirren and Puri are sparring, pettily buying out each other’s produce at the local market or bellyaching to the town’s mayor.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    This innocuous crowd-pleaser delivers everything that its pedigree and ad campaign promise, courting the patronage of foodies, Oprah Book Club members, Travel Channel subscribers, and Helen Mirren lovers alike.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    It delivers the kind of sentimental sledgehammering I found myself willing to forgive — the presence of Helen Mirren goes a long way in that regard — but once the story goes off on a pointless tangent, the whole soufflé collapses.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Jamie S. Rich

    The Hundred-Foot Journey fails to replicate the sensation of sharing a quality meal. Movies of this kind should leave you feeling hungry. Compare the Indian love story "The Lunchbox" from earlier this year. You'd swear you could smell the tandoori chicken while watching it.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The Hundred-Foot Journey is on a mission to make you cry. Whether you oblige will depend on your fondness for, or immunity to, the gentler stereotypes of movie romance.

    Time Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Unfortunately, this is one movie about food that I’m forgetting already.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The folk-wisdom level is tolerable, just as the clichés and manipulations are palatable, because the story is full of life, and free of ironic additives.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    The film is rife with tired food metaphors and plot twists so predictable you see them coming like travelers on the poplar-lined street that leads to the dueling restaurants.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Perhaps seeking to retain something of the book’s rhythm, Knight and Hallstrom let a very simple story meander for two hours and include episodes that serve no dramatic purpose.

  • Christy Lemire

    The food in question isn’t a bon bon this time — rather, the movie is the bon bon itself. Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The culinary culture clash comedy The Hundred-Foot Journey dawdles, like a meal that drags on and on because the waiter is too busy texting to bother bringing you the check.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Whether they’re filing ridiculous complaints about each other to the unflappable mayor (Michel Blanc), arguing over the proper presentation of ingredients or sharing a cafe table, Mirren and Puri bring an effortless command to their roles.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Scrumptious as it all is, it hurts to watch chefs so committed to excellence in a movie so content to settle for attractive mediocrity.

    Variety Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    The film is a mild pleasure at best. There's nothing necessarily wrong with it, and it's well-crafted, but the screenplay by Steven Knight is so remarkably free of anything resembling actual drama that I'm almost mystified by it.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The result is a film with a scattered feel. That's particularly true in the film's rushed third act, as it skips around all herky-jerky, cramming in resolutions to the various conflicts but never quite giving any of them adequate time to gel.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Nothing is surprising about The Hundred-Foot Journey. It’s a film that telegraphs all its beats and character arcs, executes them adequately but without passion or personality, then congratulates itself on a job done.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The Hundred-Foot Journey is likely neither to pique your appetite nor to sate it, leaving you in a dyspeptic limbo, stuffed with false sentiment and forced whimsy and starved for real delight.
