    I just watched Eat,Pray,Love with Julia Roberts . I was so disappointed in it. It dragged on and was boring. I usually like movies with her in them..... :thumbdown:

    I have to agree with you 100% not worth the money to watch it on Ondemand.

    I agree - so many raved and ranted about this book but I just couldn't wait for it to end so I could say I read it.

    I thought the book was terrible. I didn't even bother to finish it and wouldn't waste my $ or time on the movie.

    The premise was a good one. but I have to agree. I was very disappointed because I always like the movies Julia Roberts chooses to be in. Oh well, can't win 'em all.

    I agree - My mom bought me the book (2 times...lol) and I just couldn't get into it. I gave one copy away to a friend because she wanted to read it.

    OMG - I loved the book - I was so enthralled I couldn't stop reading it - I actually bought extra copies and gave them away - everyone I know loved it. Isn't funny how it strikes all of us differently - I am worried that the movie won't do the book justice.

    I ALWAYS finish a book once I start it. Eat, Pray, Love was the exception. I thought it was terribly boring and after about 2/3 of the way through it, I had to give up. The movie was somewhat better, but I wouldn't recommend either of them. Seriously!!

    I couldn't get through the book and I was so hoping that the movie was better, but I guess not. Drats!

    Didn't like the book so I had no interest in going to see the movie.

    After watching it for 15 minutes, I wondered what all the hype was about?

    I found the movie so dull and I was really looking forward to it.
