Eat Pray Love (2010)

Netflix DVD on 8/31/11
I should say right off the bat that I do not like Julia Roberts. Never have. I don't understand at all why people love her so much. And in this, it never felt like she was playing the main character - she was very close to playing herself. On top of that, the main character in this is whiny and self-pitying, lamenting a situation entirely of her own making and expecting others to feel sorry for her. The only touching part of the whole (much too long) film is when she tries to raise money for a single mother in Bali by contacting everyone she has met throughout the course of her travels. Which is touching because of the single mother, not at all because of her.
My Netflix rating: 2 stars

New Movies in Year Three: 84
