Transcript for Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg on 'The Hundred Foot Journey'
Talk about a dynamic duo sitting here with me, Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey who worked together on a film for the first time in nearly 0.030 years. "The hundred-foot journey" about a clash of cultures opens this Friday and Oprah and Steven have been kind enough to bring us a sneak peek. Take a look. You must understand that the site and this village property would be very expensive. Well, I heard you asked for a discount in Claude's hotel. Let's not do this. Madame, ask for discount doesn't mean I'm poor. It means I'm thrifty. One of my favorite lines from the movie. This movie has heart. This movie has humor and I want to know what you all were hoping audience members would take away when they walked away from this film. I'm hoping that, you know, people who love the idea of great food, celebrating connections and friendship and it's a love story too will come out and watch it. Steven you mentioned this for you -- it's a fusion between two cultures. Uh-huh. It takes a second to sit down and share a meal and when you share a meal, you know, usually if it's a good meal puts a smile on your face. Helen mirren when she was here yesterday said it's the perfect date movie because you leave the theater so hungry, you are ready for dinner. Movie and a dipper. It is a perfect date movie. Nothing to worry about even if it's a first date. You don't have any of those uncomfortable moments where you go, oh, god. What are we going to see this for on the first date? Speaking about -- it is truly a family movie. I watched it with my daughters and there aren't many films like that and I thought it was a beautiful thing. You're welcome. To be able to share. Thank you. I thank you for that and was that also important part of this for you, this was something everyone could sit down and watch. This is what Steven Spielberg does and what I have felt for years, you want to be able to be able to sit down with your family and -- or go to the theater, hello, with your family and not be embarrassed and not, you know, say, oh, oh, maybe we shouldn't have brought the children. Or reaching over to -- Maybe I shouldn't have brought pie parents. Holding ears because of a bad word. None of that here but it's a wonderful love story about two families and the funniest parts are this competition. These two restaurants are literally 100 feet from away from each other which is why the movie is called and the book was called "The hundred-foot journey." 100 foot door to door from an Indian tandoori and a French restaurant. I went to France for some of the filming. Sitting on set as producers and I was like, wow, this -- you could not tell that these guys were actually acting. They felt -- they jelled so it's so authentic. Anymore acting in -- I have a little more coming up. Yeah, yeah, I just finished another film I'm producing along with "Plan B" called is the Selma" who played my son in "The butler" playing martin Luther king. You may not remember this but maybe you do. Ten years ago you were on "Good morning America" and you said you really wanted to do a musical and there was a little rumor a few months ago that maybe that musical might be "West side story." Any truth to that. You know something, "West side story" is one of my favorite Broadway musical. Me too. And one of the greatest pieces of -- my goodness, one of the greatest scores and some of the greatest lyrics ever written for a musical, so let me put it this way, it's on my mind. Whoo. I'm going to leave it with that. That's good, Amy. You got that. Steven, Oprah. We're on a first name basis. I'm teasing. I feel -- Amy, thank you. Thanks, Steven. Thanks, Oprah. We really appreciate it. "The hundred-foot journey" opens nationwide this Friday and we'll be right back.
