John & Becky’s Movie Review of Eat Pray Love

Becky and I went to see the new Julia Roberts movieEat, Pray, Love a couple of weeks ago at the AMC theater in Flat Irons Crossing. The Yahoo website at Eat Pray Love describes the movie as follows:

“Liz Gilbert had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having — a husband, a house, a successful career — yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali…”

The Review
Eat Pray Love is a movie I can describe in just one word – “painful”. This movie was over two hours long watching Julia Roberts’ character go through what amounts to a major mid-life crisis for a woman who has decided she’s married to the wrong man. Her solution to her misery, after leaving her husband is to hook-up with a younger guy, follow his “guru” and set off on a quest to Rome Italy, Bali and of course India. She meets a number of interesting characters along the way and of course is in search of her true love.

There are some funny parts to the film, like when she finally reaches India to meet her guru only to discover that her guru is in New York where she came from. All I could think of is how this woman is trying to become more like her “guru” and get in touch with herself, while her “guru” would like nothing more than to get out of India and live in New York. The irony was actually quite funny. The movie is whacked though and beyond boring.

Julia’s character comes across like a spoiled rich woman in search of a new reality because she thinks that her life is so rough. It was torture. Becky and I both couldn’t wait for it to end. Can’t even suggest this as a good rental.
