Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Juliette Lewis, Mary Steenburgen

Votes: 196,936 | Gross: $9.17M

It's sentimental and somewhat predictable, but those are small complaints, given the tender atmosphere and moving performances at the heart of What's Eating Gilbert Grape.

Votes: 11,905 | Gross: $50.89M

Something to Talk About never goes bad, though it does get corny in places, and it hits a couple of dull patches near the finish.

PG-13 | 126 min | Drama, Romance

75 Metascore

The Cider House Rules has wonderful performances, lovely visuals, and an old-fashioned feel.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Alfred Molina, Carrie-Anne Moss

Votes: 168,103 | Gross: $71.51M

Chocolat is a charmingly light-hearted fable with a lovely performance by Binoche.

14. The Shipping News (2001)

R | 111 min | Drama

47 Metascore

An emotionally beaten man with his young daughter moves to his ancestral home in Newfoundland to reclaim his life.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Kevin Spacey, Julianne Moore, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett

Votes: 30,815 | Gross: $11.43M

Though solidly made and acted, The Shipping News is rather heavy-handed and dull, especially given the nature of its protagonist.

PG-13 | 108 min | Drama, Family, Romance

49 Metascore

Desperate to provide care for her daughter, down-on-her-luck Jean moves in with her father in-law from whom she is estranged. Through time, they learn to forgive each other and heal old wounds.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Jennifer Lopez, Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman, Josh Lucas

Votes: 27,201 | Gross: $8.59M

A story of disjointed family members yearning for true emotional depth, An Unfinished Life teeters between overtly saccharine sentiments and moments of real intimacy.

R | 112 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama

57 Metascore

The fabled romantic Giacomo Casanova, after failing to win the affection of the Venetian woman Francesca Bruni, strives to discover the real meaning of love.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Heath Ledger, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons, Oliver Platt

Votes: 49,347 | Gross: $11.29M

This frothy, oddly bloodless film does a disservice to the colorful life of the real Casanova.

17. The Hoax (2006)

R | 116 min | Comedy, Drama

70 Metascore

In what would cause a fantastic media frenzy, Clifford Irving sells his bogus biography of Howard Hughes to a premiere publishing house in the early 1970s.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Richard Gere, Alfred Molina, David Aaron Baker, John Carter

Votes: 15,528 | Gross: $7.16M

The Hoax is an enormously appealing film, thanks to the uniformly excellent performances and Lasse Hallström's zippy direction.

18. Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009)

G | 93 min | Drama, Family

A college professor bonds with an abandoned dog he takes into his home.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Richard Gere, Joan Allen, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Sarah Roemer

Votes: 222,526

Sensitively directed and rarely over-sentimental, this touching parable will likely ravish the emotions of dog lovers.

PG-13 | 108 min | Drama, Romance, War

43 Metascore

A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he's home on leave.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Richard Jenkins, Henry Thomas

Votes: 128,309 | Gross: $80.01M

Built from many of the same ingredients as other Nicholas Sparks tearjerkers, Dear John suffers from its cliched framework, as well as Lasse Hallstrom's curiously detached directing.

20. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011)

PG-13 | 107 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

58 Metascore

A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert and embarks on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible possible.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Amr Waked, Kristin Scott Thomas

Votes: 58,780 | Gross: $9.03M

Quirky and a little reserved, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is nonetheless a charming little romantic drama sold by some strong central performances.

21. The Hypnotist (2012)

122 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller

A detective pairs himself with a famous psychologist on a case involving a traumatized young witness to a crime.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Tobias Zilliacus, Mikael Persbrandt, Lena Olin, Helena Af Sandeberg

Votes: 7,004

It is not long before the recurrent motifs of sedative drugs, deep slumbers, comas and hypnosis have all come to highlight the film's soporific pace, making the viewer just feel sleepier and sleepier.

22. Safe Haven (I) (2013)

PG-13 | 115 min | Drama, Romance, Thriller

34 Metascore

A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel, Cobie Smulders, David Lyons

Votes: 96,761 | Gross: $71.35M

Schmaltzy, predictable, and melodramatic, Safe Haven also suffers from a ludicrous plot twist, making for a particularly ignominious Nicholas Sparks adaptation.

23. The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014)

PG | 122 min | Comedy, Drama

55 Metascore

The Kadam family leaves India for France where they open a restaurant directly across the road from Madame Mallory's Michelin-starred eatery.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, Charlotte Le Bon

Votes: 69,375 | Gross: $54.24M

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.

24. A Dog's Purpose (2017)

PG | 100 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama

43 Metascore

A dog looks to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes and owners.

Director: Lasse Hallström | Stars: Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Peggy Lipton, Bryce Gheisar

Votes: 53,175 | Gross: $64.51M

A Dog's Purpose offers an awkward blend of sugary sentiment and canine suffering that tugs at animal-loving audiences' heartstrings with shameless abandon.

25. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)

PG | 99 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy

39 Metascore

A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.

Directors: Lasse Hallström, Joe Johnston | Stars: Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren

Votes: 18,001 | Gross: $54.86M

Lacking a transporting yuletide story or dazzling dance routines, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a hollow holiday confection that's lovely to look at -- and easy to forget.
