Liz Gilbert 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.
Drama - This drama is an adaptation of the best-selling book. Women of all
ages is the target audience. Fans of Julia Roberts will be very
pleased, and most other stars features definitely take a secondary
role. Adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids, who
wouldn't be interested anyhow.
PROFANITY: 1 F-word, 8 S-words, 1 GD, a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: A fall and bleeding wound. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Very frequent alcohol. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Comic lines and situations, sometimes suggestive.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average Eat Pray Love is a muddle of a film - 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.
Roger EbertFull Review Average "Eat Pray Love" is shameless wish-fulfillment, a Harlequin novel crossed with a mystic travelogue, and it mercifully reverses the life chronology of many people, which is Love Pray Eat.
USA TodayFull Review Average Though there are a handful of funny lines, the deeper observations are facile. The whole journey feels like a rich girl gone slumming.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 186 moviegoers:
TEENS:They all loved Eat, Pray, Love."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The female reviews are almost great. The problem is that there are too many reviews of "Good/Average" for it to be great. Still, it's obvious that nearly everyone enjoyed this movie very much.The couple of males rated it average and above average.
ADULTS:Like the twentysomething females, the adult female reviews are very good, but not great. Three-quarters enjoyed "Eat, Pray, Love" very much, but quite a few rated it just average, with a few reviews even lower. The male reviews aren't real good, but they aren't terrible. Most of the guys enjoyed this movie, at least to some degree. Just a few were truly disappointed.
