Liz Gilbert (Roberts) 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. Based upon the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert.
This movie is an adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's book. it is just reading the book with some modifications to fit the storyline. It really depends upon how you see it in perspective, whether you are a man or a woman. A divorced woman finding herself in this world is a nice concept. Julia Roberts is credible. A nice date movie.
THE WORST MOVIE JULIA HAS EVER DONE!
SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR QUALITY MOVIE PRODUCERS!
This is clearly a Hard R Rated Movie!
How they got this POS past censors with a PG 13 should be of concern to parents who trust these ratings.
The "flat footed chicken ""fornication""" remark alone is by any standard Degenerate.
This was followed immediately by an equally offensive
Julia Roberts can find better Scripts to showcase her talent!
This movie was okay but it is pure fantasy. I thought it was going to be more about real life situations so I really felt let down by the main plot. Basically the movie could be summed up by saying "a woman can't live without a man in her life". I really think they should begin to make movies a little more realistic and portray a woman that can find true happiness even if she is not married. That is what I thought this movie was going to be about, but it is far from that. It just has the same old fashion macho mentality.
SAVE YOUR MONEY on this lousy film. All I could think of was, the movie was like staying home on a Saturday night and reading an old washed out, faded, 50 year old, out of date, crumbling, black and white travel guide for fun. Julia Roberts needs to retire and stay home and take care of her kids with the funny names. I couldn't wait for it to get over. It was like watching the clock waiting for school to get out for Friday and I was so happy to get out of the theater. Too bad they don't give refunds. Very flat movie. YAWN. Pass the grey poupon AND LOTS OF IT please to spice it up. YUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
