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.

Women's Voices for Change

With 6 million readers of Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir, clearly, the movie has big shoes to fill. It may not succeed, but Julia Roberts and the film's designers give us a lot to enjoy.

An engaging but deliberate chick flick at times, Eat, Pray, Love has the quintessential chick flick star at the helm with Roberts, who played the role beautifully...

The film version is pure wish-fulfillment fantasy.

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."

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

The unexamined privilege, the idealization/exotification of all places east, the canned spirituality, the sensual goddamn spaghetti-it's all so focus-group-tested and Oprah approved and self-perpetuating and embarrassing.

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

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

Let's face it. There are some books that should never be made into movies.

Even if Julia Roberts is adorable and the stunning scenery will probably make you want to go backpacking around the world, this weak movie feels a bit bloated… More

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

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

This was a great, heartfelt story about love, life, food and all the adventures we take and we are forced to take in our lives. I really liked it.
