Eat. Pray. Love 2

Saw Eat Pray Love today with my fabulous sister Aimee and we both dragged our husbands along. I had totally forgotten that my bro-in-law isn't a Julia Roberts fan, and that is putting it lightly, so it was a bit comedic as she was in every single scene of the movie. I adore Julia, so I loved that she was in every scene.

I really enjoyed the delightful treat of journeying through Italy, India, and Indonesia-it was the best eye candy next to the sexy James Franco (David) and Javier Bardem (Felipe). Julia Roberts did a beautiful job portraying Liz Gilbert. I do wish that they could have portrayed the pain and loneliness she truly experienced and expressed so eloquently in her book. I feel like that was missing in the movie. I also thought the movie was a bit long since it was like 2 hours and 15 minutes or so.

Has anyone else seen it yet? Any thoughts. Here are some great images from the movie.

Some of the timelines in the movie were a bit confusing and it did lack a the emotional depth the title eludes to, but it was not boring and never dull. I think if the editing were better it could have been much more impactful and 30 minutes shorter.

Only real unfortunate part was the terrifying nightmares resulting from seeing the Flip-Top head creature on a big screen
