I finally saw “Eat, Pray, Love” the movie! On Wednesday night I headed into town to see the movie with two of my new friends. I had coupons for four euro movie passes which to us girls, who are not yet getting steady paycheques, where like gold!
The movie itself was really good. I love just about ever Julia Roberts movie (and James Franco is oh so cute!) and yet as much as I liked the movie (it past the test – I cried and I laughed), there was something just not quite right about it. I can’t quite pinpoint it but I think what the problem is is that I have such a personal relationship with the book that I just couldn’t love the movie. Maybe if I hadn’t read the book or maybe if I hadn’t loved the book the movie would have wowed me. Or, better yet, maybe if I hadn’t had such high expectations for the movie, I would have liked it more. Oh well…at the end of the day, it was just a movie!
