This is one of those movies I’m glad I watched, but will probably never need to see again. It has a different kind of vibe to it. Like Dennis Rodman’s wardrobe.
It’s more of a drama than a comedy, but I found it entertaining and uplifting. It was produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey and has a good cast, though none that I would recognize outside this film. And despite the absolute perfectness of his last name, Tim Curry is not in this film.
OH, SOMETHING YOU SHOULD KNOW: I don’t actually like Indian food. To be fair though, I don’t particularly enjoy Mexican or Chinese either. But hey, you give me a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios and I’m as happy as a clam (…which I only like in chowder).
And now, your Oprah quote of the day:
“[The Hundred-Foot Journey] is about human beings coming to understand other human beings, and more importantly, after you get to experience or step into somebody else’s shoes or see them for a real human being, how you understand that you’re really more alike than you are different.”
I had started to write something similar, but realized Oprah said it better (Thanks, O.) We human beings really are more alike than we are different, and I believe it is our willingness to reach out to those who seem the most different that will elevate us from one to three stars in life.
