Eat, Pray, Love (2010)

Director: Ryan Murphy. Cast: Julia Roberts, Billy Crudup, Viola Davis, James Franco, Richard Jenkins, Javier Bardem. 133 min. Rated PG-13. Romance.

A critic once said: "If nothing happens during the first ten minutes, nothing will happen till the end." I waited 50 minutes, and still nothing happened. Rarely do I stop watching a movie halfway through, but the utter lack of a story here was unbearable, and I didn't think I could keep on wasting my life for the entire 133 minutes.

So this was my first review of a movie I didn't watch to the end. Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted.

  1. Sorry, nothing happened during the 1st sentence so I ...

  2. it was a very feminine pointed film for those who have sacrificed themselves for nothing important. Except "pray", I realy enjoyed her sudden courage to decide without being too much far-sighted. that means the real calmness in life...let every bothering thing arround u ,go ...

  3. My conclusion was that she was a spoiled capitalist brat who threw her life away ... just because she could! And when into exotic eastern cultures just because she had nothing better to do with her life.

    But again, I didn't see the entire movie.
