Eat Pray Love Reviews

Will Chadwick
We Got This Covered

Eat Pray Love is overlong and quickly becomes tedious. It features narcissistic, inward looking characters of no interest at all and amounts to a very poorly made film.

Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

Liz maybe the most unlikeable character Julia Roberts has ever had to play, not because co-writer/director Ryan Murphy is trying to make her so but because everything the film does pushes her in that direction.

Quickflix

Eat Pray Love is a two hour and fifteen minute ad for being rich; it's a smug, patronising travelogue that -- despite its already apt title -- could have also been called First World Problems: The Movie.

Sarasota Herald-Tribune

I admired Julia Roberts' grasping for something meatier, but this film sticks her with an unrelatable character that even her coltish smile can't beautify.

This is London

It's in equal measure patronising, sententious and obnoxious.

Anne Thompson
Thompson on Hollywood

Ryan Murphy's film adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert's bestseller about the divorced New Yorker's lone odyssey to Italy, India and Bali to find meaning in her life is a shallow guilty pleasure: an escapist Julia Roberts romance and exotic travelogue.

There?s too much eating, too much praying and too much loving. I should have known given the title.

Give me real emotions of guilt, embarrassment and confusion any day over the forgettable trite this film exudes.

The fatal flaw of Eat Pray Love is that for a celebration of enlightenment through travel and the benefits of restorative calm, the end result is so hollow and artificial. Don't mistake entitlement for enlightenment.

Rebecca Barry
Flicks.co.nz

It's as though the "phenomenon" of Eat Pray Love got away on itself and, rather than casting a self-deprecating, unknown actress who could embody 30-something middle-class angst, they chose the biggest, richest movie star of the lot.

Josh Bell
Las Vegas Weekly

Murphy's film version of the story is relentlessly superficial, a slick, empty travelogue propped up only by Roberts' natural charisma.

San Diego Union-Tribune

Comes off more like a female midlife crisis fantasy than a substantive search for knowledge and inner peace.

Eat Pray Love isn't a bad movie -- just a spiritually dead one, wearing and wearying.

A drive-through take on mid-life spirituality - with lots of food and travel porn

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

... an irritating, smug film about a horrible person, a narcissistic destroyer of worlds so caught up in romancing her impossibly sensitive self that she doesn't even notice the needless damage she inflicts on her fellow creatures.

You can see how it would be fun to spend a year traveling with Gilbert. A lot more fun than spending nearly 2.5 hours watching a movie about it.

An overlong bore that either mistakenly thinks it's something more than a humdrum romance or has incorporated a variety of pretentions as window-dressing.

The film is a fairly faithful transcription of events, even though Liz, as played by Roberts, carries a faint air of entitlement. I'm not sure this could be avoided on screen.

Wall Street Journal
Top Critic IconTop Critic

The book's internal dialogue, that of a good observer with a lively mind, has turned into the extravagantly external and cloyingly earnest quest of a woman in deep distress.

A sparkier and more soul-searching script would have made this a much more satisfying journey.
