The film version is pure wish-fulfillment fantasy.

Merely good and not great as many fans of the book hoped it would be.

On the surface a beautiful film. But those looking for some hidden spiritual meaning be warned - Eat Pray Love doesn't go that deep.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Eat Pray Love ... [hits] its target demographic right between the eyes, but in the same way that a self-help book may appeal to thousands, it will never be great literature.

It is a perfectly competently constructed movie, and an enjoyable one too.

While undeniably a chick flick, this is a classy one bolstered by an all-round excellent cast and well crafted script.

Of course, we should remember that the film delivers exactly what it promises by way of the ultimate romantic fantasy for women over 30 or so (divorced or not)

While it touches the main plot points of Elizabeth Gilbert's bestselling novel like stepping stones, it is left to Julia Roberts' bewitching smile and Javier Bardem's sensuality to convince us that Liz's journey of self discovery is one we want to take

Preaching to the converted, fans of the book should be sated. Julia Roberts is easy to love.

Roberts is luminous against breathtaking locations including all of Rome's landmarks and colourful, sun-nourished eastern landscapes.

A movie of picture postcard landscapes and ridiculously hunky blokes, this is very much cinematic comfort food where the answers to life's problems come a little too neatly gift-wrapped.
Karen Krizanovich
Radio Times
September 23, 2010
The cast is spectacular: Roberts looks relaxed, luminous and credible, Javier Bardem is suitably rugged as her new lover, while Richard Jenkins is brilliant as her grumbling prayer pal.

A beautiful, languid travelogue, although with some of the source novel's empowerment diluted.

The movie is aware of its own riches; it fills up your plate and dares you not to eat.

If you like Roberts and understand what it means to ''smile with your liver'', this is the film for you.

Though many movies have explored Eastern culture and juxtaposed it against the American experience, there still is something to learn here, especially because it repeatedly questions what's important in life.

It does focus on spirituality, a vital part of most human beings which nevertheless is absent in most films.

What's inevitably lost is any real attempt to track Liz's internal shifts, the way her travels jostle her preconceived notions of selfhood and spirituality.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

As summer draws to a close, Eat Pray Love is a pleasurable, sometimes even prayerful, escape.
