Although the scenery is beautiful ranging from Italy to India to Indonesia, and I really like Julia Roberts as an actor, Eat Pray Love is not great. Maybe just good. What is really a shame in my opinion is the privilege exuded from the movie’s main character. As she travels from country to country, I was amazed by her ability to make connections to such interesting people, her luck in finding such beautiful and unique places to stay, but most importantly, I was amazed at her ability to always find something to complain and be miserable about. She has the privilege of taking months long vacations. However, she is upset because she has not been able to “find herself”. Not many people will ever have this opportunity, sometimes people do not have the money or time or stability to up and leave everything on the off chance they “find themselves”. Therefore, when this idealistic motive pops-up in a movie, it would be nice to also have the character reflect on what a privilege she has. The movie was not bad though, maybe I am just not the right target audience, but then again who is? @Chickenfarm73 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I didn't care for this movie at all, even with Julia Roberts in the lead. Not entertaining at all and just a really bad storyline.

“Eat, Pray, Love?” I remember that. It’s by the woman who found her husband, then wrote a best-selling book about commitment, then dumped him when she self-discovered she was a lesbian and wrote a best-seller about that. I’d rather take spiritual advice from a fortune cookie. It does serve as a bad example.

I could not stand this book and the movie did not make it much better. The only redeeming quality were the actors.

I'm still not quite sure why this film got such poor reviews when it first came out. I was glued to it, and I also had read the book. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. A bit too cliche, and I thought they could've been more creative with the story there. It wasnt an exact replication of the book so they could've done even more with the story. Julia Roberts as always is fabulous in her acting. Overall I liked the film a lot.

What an awful story. Why did Liz need to divorce her husband to find herself? Why did she have to travel the world to find herself? Maybe I need to be a 40 year old divorcee in a mid-life crisis to understand.

Eat, fidget, pray, yawn, love, sleep ZZZZZzzzzzzz. Boring, self-indulgent, not recommended. Maybe the book is better?

I found this movie quite boring and hard to watch. I have read the book and loved it, however the movie just wasn't able to keep my attention.
