Eat Pray Love
Boring Bland Pointless
This movie is uninteresting, which is disappointing, because I thought it would be extremely interesting, especially since the book did so well. It had all of the right ingredients: Julia Roberts, James Franco, Javier Bardem, Italy, India, and Bali. Unfortunately turned out to be quite the long and dull disaster leaving the viewer begging "Please, no more."
Liz Gilbert (Roberts) is unhappy in her life and her marriage. Feeling uninspired, she travels to Italy, India, and Bali for food, peace, and balance. Throughout her travels she meets a number of interesting people, much more interesting than she is for that matter, and in the end, falls in love.
The movie tended to be very boring, especially, when Gilbert was in the last two countries. There was nothing that happened to her that was either moving, interesting, or unpredictable. It would have really been much more interesting to watch how the other characters' lives played out, because they had real drama as opposed to Gilbert's mid-life crisis. The best thing about the movie was the food in Italy. Otherwise, it isn't worth the watch
