Consensus: Director Lasse Hallström does lovely work and Helen Mirren is always worth watching, but The Hundred-Foot Journey travels predictable ground already covered by countless feel-good dramedies.

Got to admit, got roped into this one. Wasn't one I would have chosen to watch. It is a good movie. The story about the Indian family moving to France… More

Not too spicy. Not too bland. Somewhat charming, but nothing special.
