Eat Pray Love is more of a romanticized travelogue, rather than a truly transformative one.

... almost two and a half hours in which [Julia Roberts] displays her charisma... [Full review in Spanish]

With 6 million readers of Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir, clearly, the movie has big shoes to fill. It may not succeed, but Julia Roberts and the film's designers give us a lot to enjoy.

An engaging but deliberate chick flick at times, Eat, Pray, Love has the quintessential chick flick star at the helm with Roberts, who played the role beautifully...
August 30, 2017
The unexamined privilege, the idealization/exotification of all places east, the canned spirituality, the sensual goddamn spaghetti-it's all so focus-group-tested and Oprah approved and self-perpetuating and embarrassing.

Let's face it. There are some books that should never be made into movies.

This gentle, meditative, well-told tale has a lot to offer.
November 9, 2013
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.

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.
March 14, 2011
A seemingly interminable romantic travelogue that feels as though it takes as long to watch as the year-long spiritual quest it depicts.
January 31, 2011
The film version is pure wish-fulfillment fantasy.

Julia's late career seems an apologia for buying someone else's husband and getting away with it, for the most part, in the court of public opinion.
January 3, 2011
During the India scenes, Liz accuses Richard from Texas of spouting a bunch of bumper-sticker slogans... as though her revelations are any better.
December 29, 2010
[Takes] itself too seriously, even while it contains all the trappings of one of the most lighthearted movie genres, the 'travel romance' or 'travel therapy' movie.

El mayor problema es el subrayado permanente de lo que suele llamarse "mensaje", eso que supuestamente el espectador debe descubrir en el transcurso de una película y llevarse al final para su casa y que aquí está servido como receta.
October 22, 2010
Merely good and not great as many fans of the book hoped it would be.
October 21, 2010
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.
October 13, 2010
On the surface a beautiful film. But those looking for some hidden spiritual meaning be warned - Eat Pray Love doesn't go that deep.
