This review is from: Eat, Pray, Love [DVD]  (DVD)
having read and quite enjoyed the book, I was really disappointed by how badly this film turned out. Decent cast but not given much to do except look alluring - Julia Roberts remains deeply unsympathetic throughout despite her 'journey' to herself (maybe a common problem when the narrator of the book ends up as the main character). Cheesily bad script that's full of cliches (everyone's happy in Italy because they understand pleasure and Americans are miserable because they are full of guilt). And overlong - you know the film is going to be in 3 parts so the lack of pace means it just becomes tedious. Yawn...solipsistic nonsense that is sadly geared towards a forgiving (and undernourished) female audience.

I agree, this film made me cringe several times it was so bad. My Boyfriend had to cover his head with a blanket to miss the dreadful bits. It was truly an awful film and was glad when it ended but wished they had made it a good film by cutting 40% of it . Never mind.

I agree, it was cliched and stereotypical and i couldn't feel the charcters anguish or suffering.
