It's the movie version of comfort food. Except even in comfort food there's a difference between something made from scratch, and something that comes out of a box. And "The Hundred-Foot Journey" still tastes of powdered cheese.
The Hundred-Foot Journey is vintage Hallstrom - genial and meditative, focusing more on characters and emotions than an overcooked plot. The story is simple; the people inhabiting the movie make this worth seeing.
I'll spare you my usual rant about the decadence of foodies, but it should be obvious by now that, despite their discerning tastes, the movies catering to them are the artistic equivalent of dinner at the Olive Garden.
