Eat Pray and I walked outBy Bridman (28 reviews) from Bridlington , 27 Sep 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]If an Oscar is given to the most boring film this would have no competition.
It is the real life adventure of Liz Gilbert adapted to make Jukia Roberts the centre of the universe. Forget the actress that thrilled us in Erin Brokovitch - forget the face that entranced us in Pretty Woman - this is Hollywood creating a shrine to faded talent.
Initially there was some hope that the film might elevate to something resembling entertainment but as it progressed from New York to Rome and onto Delhi it became more and more dire.
A few minutes of Bali and my wife gave me that knowing look and I was happy to walk out of the cinema with her.
Ryan Murphy should hold his head in shame. The stereotyped characters - the phony 'chance' encounters. What a total load of rubbish.

Do Not BotherBy a customer , 08 Dec 2013Yaaaaaaaaaaawn! Do not bother. Woman finds 'self' after getting a divorce and travelling. It is self indulgent, self righteous and filled me with self loathing! Predictable ending. I knew all of this before renting the film but thought it would still be a fun watch but it wasn't. Very boring. Don't do it people. Don't bother.
Tedious in the extremeBy USPeanut (4 reviews) from Teddington , 20 Nov 2013Very dissapointing. As many others have stated this is a seriously boring movie. Maybe I should read the book. I normally love Julia Roberts but this charactor comes across as a totally self absessed bore. Yes many of us reach a cross roads in our life when we appear to have achieved most of the normal things in life and want more. Most of us have the sense not to dump the ones we love to go and 'find ourselves' on a jaunt to India. Take a career break go travel its much kinder to everyone.!!
this film sucksBy a customer , 02 Sep 2013loved the book. I thought Julia Roberts as Liz was fantastic casting. The trailer looked awesome. I smiled every time I saw it. Turns out, I loved everything about this movie except the movie. Long story short, it's all of the arc of the book, without any of the passion. While never horrible, this film simply made me feel nothing. I found the book soulful, moving, even transformative at times. The greatest emotion I felt from the film was hunger (for Italian pizza), thirst (for Italian wine), and an occasional dizziness due to director Ryan Murphy's apparent recent discovery of how to 'pan.' It was laughable camera-work throughout the first 45 minutes, and occasionally throughout. The first 1/2 hour of the film was almost unbearably bad, even though the first section of the book was amongst my favorites. Perhaps someone who did not read the book could enjoy this movie, but I somehow doubt it. One time Liz made a joke, that was a nice break from the feeling of being in a lukewarm bathtub for 2 1/2 hours. Not unpleasant, just meh. Instead of finding Liz intelligent and thoughtful, she seemed selfish, boring, and obsessed with men. Instead of finding spirituality, she seemed vapid. When the character becomes shallow, a film centered around that character becomes a throw away. Maybe I'll just watch the trailer again.
Very TediousBy yesterdayman (45 reviews) , 08 Aug 2013Very disappointing story of self obsessed woman disappearing to Europe for a year to find herself - each time I 'woke up' she seemed to be eating. Maybe if you are a Julia Roberts fan there might be some attraction otherwise there is absolutely no reason not to give this film a miss
Innermost workings of the mind...?By a customer , 03 Jul 2013This film fails to provide any drama to keep the interest & any gold nuggets for life that I might have expected of it either weren't there or were so unmemorable or inaudible that I missed them. I'm told by those who have read the book that the book is all about her innermost thoughts and so, unsurprisingly, it doesn't translate well to screen, at least not in this attempt.
