Eat Pray Love

I went with Magellan and we saw Eat Pray Love on Saturday.

I thought it was okay but I was expecting to love it and was disappointed that I didn't.  It did have some good quotable lines that naturally we forgot when we got out. Does that mean they were not so quotable or just bad memories,ha,ha.  I thought the movie was too long. 

Did anyone see it and what did you think?

I never read the book and was wondering if I would have liked it better if I had. Although Magellan didn't read the book and she liked it a lot.

We had an older couple sit in front of us.  We thought they were married and then we overheard them talking about each others grandchildren.  We think they were on a date.  It goes to show, it's never too late ;-)

When we left the movies, we decided to go out and eat.  The twizzlers I ate at the movies apparently wasn't enough for supper for me.  We had hamburgers, french fries (which I really didn't eat many) and chocolate milkshakes.  I would say that was a perfect ending.

I've heard this movie is disappointing, which is a shame as I was hoping to go see it and fall in love. I did read the book and could see that it might not work great as a movie as it so much internal stuff.

And yum Twizzlers!

I went with my girlfriend and felt the same way you did. I left there wondering if there was some profound message that I missed??Italy was beautiful, India was filthy, Bali was brief.

My girl friend said Egypt was just as filthy and India. Trash everywhere. One would think if you are going to film a romantic movie you would choose a magical place. Not some gutter.

Julia Roberts lover in the movie did nothing for me.


My two cents.~Ames

P.S. Love twizzlers!!

I haven't seen the movie, but enjoyed the book, although I did not relate to the character in any way! Don't long to see the movie!
