Eat, Pray, Love

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. oh, excuse me, just the title now triggers some automatic response.
This movie could not get any more boring. The scenery is lovely. But lawdy, it is a snoozer. First of all, I do not find any part of Julia Roberts (below her eyes) to be interesting or pretty. I find most of the time she is onscreen I am trying to figure out what people see in her. This script is flat and dead. No one is interesting. Everything feels superficial. And she runs from Rome to India to Bali with no real feeling that any of them mattered. And it goes on FOREVER. On the upside, you will be spared a trip to any of those places. On the downside, it will feel as if you went and stayed for months. Just not worth it.
