Eat Pray Love

post signature
Liz Gilbert, played by Julia Roberts, is unhappy with her marriage and her life. She divorces her husband and travels the world to find herself. For two hours we watch her eat meals and meet wisdom-spewing people. Really, that’s the plot. I could go on just to fill the space, but I’d just be making stuff up.

ClearPlay In Action!

ClearPlay cleans up a fair amount of language, more than one would think would be in this kind of movie. Also edited are some sexual references and rear male nudity. Eat Pray Love deals with mature topics (divorce, sexuality, etc.) and is for caffeinated adults.

Will I Eat it Up or Pray for it to End?…

A couple of characters in this movie say, "nothing lasts forever." Eat Pray Love does. At 133 minutes, this is a slog. The root of Liz’s discontent is never explained, so her journey seems self absorbed and her transformation imperceptible. A main character should have more than one personality trait (unhappy). There are some fantastic performances from the men Liz throws away or learns from, but Eat Pray Love will mostly appeal to discontented women who think they can solve their problems with international travel. The book this is based on is probably better.
