A woman who once made it her goal in life to marry and rear a family finds her priorities suddenly shifting in Ryan Murphy and Jennifer Salt's adaptation of author Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling memoir. In the eyes of many, Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) was a woman who had it all -- a loving husband, a great career, and a weekend home -- but sometimes one realizes too little too late that they haven't gotten what they truly wanted from life. On the heels of a painful divorce, the woman who had previously looked forward to a contented life of domestic bliss sets out to seek her true… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film version is pure wish-fulfillment fantasy."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"The movie is completely aware of its own riches; it fills up your plate and dares you not to eat."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Eat Pray Love is overlong and quickly becomes tedious. It features narcissistic, inward looking characters of no interest at all and amounts to a very poorly made film."
‑ Will Chadwick, We Got This Covered
"Julia's late career seems an apologia for buying someone else's husband and getting away with it, for the most part, in the court of public opinion."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"full review at Movies for the Masses"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"The movie is aware of its own riches; it fills up your plate and dares you not to eat."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"Try not to hoot when the gaunt Roberts makes a bring-on-the-flab speech to persuade the equally slender Tuva Novotny to eat pizza, even if they get "muffin tops.""
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"Liz maybe the most unlikeable character Julia Roberts has ever had to play, not because co-writer/director Ryan Murphy is trying to make her so but because everything the film does pushes her in that direction."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"During the India scenes, Liz accuses Richard from Texas of spouting a bunch of bumper-sticker slogans... as though her revelations are any better."
‑ Andy Klein, Christian Science Monitor
"El mayor problema es el subrayado permanente de lo que suele llamarse "mensaje", eso que supuestamente el espectador debe descubrir en el transcurso de una película y llevarse al final para su casa y que aquí está servido como receta."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
"We're not so much involved in the movie as idly registering it -- eavesdropping, almost, on a conversation at an adjoining table."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"The movie left me with the feeling of being trapped with a person of privilege who won't stop with the whine whine whine."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A seemingly interminable romantic travelogue that feels as though it takes as long to watch as the year-long spiritual quest it depicts."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"[Takes] itself too seriously, even while it contains all the trappings of one of the most lighthearted movie genres, the 'travel romance' or 'travel therapy' movie."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Merely good and not great as many fans of the book hoped it would be."
‑ Katina Vangopoulos, Moviedex
