Consensus: The scenery is nice to look at, and Julia Roberts is as luminous as ever, but without the spiritual and emotional weight of the book that inspired it, Eat Pray Love is too shallow to resonate.

The film version is pure wish-fulfillment fantasy.

The movie is completely aware of its own riches; it fills up your plate and dares you not to eat.

We Got This Covered

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.

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.

We're not so much involved in the movie as idly registering it -- eavesdropping, almost, on a conversation at an adjoining table.

The movie left me with the feeling of being trapped with a person of privilege who won't stop with the whine whine whine.

Movie Talk

A seemingly interminable romantic travelogue that feels as though it takes as long to watch as the year-long spiritual quest it depicts.

Not as bad as I expected, but still pretty missable. I found the book the same way. I pretty much used this as background noise while I did housework. I missed… More

Either Elizabeth Gilbert didn't actually go to Italy/Bali/India or she's been a little 'creative' with the truth. It's fair to say… More

All this film did was make me hungry and slightly happy at the fact it was such a nice ending. Also, James Franco made a cameo and he is absolutely gorgeous.… More
