I saw Eat Pray Love on Friday night, opening night. First I had to get my snacks! I mixed Mr. Pibb with Cherry Coke
and then added some Jelly Belly's to my popcorn.
Then I settled in to watch the movie, although predictably the theater was too cold and even though I had brought a little cardigan with me, I had on cropped jeans and my legs were freezing! Why do they keep theaters so cold? I just want to know!
And my husband was fidgeting next to me. It was not his kind of movie at all, but I felt he was due for a chick flick. Somehow he got out of seeing Sex and the City 2 with me!
So really this movie was not for everyone, maybe not ALL husbands. But I think it was beautifully done and stuck very close to the book. If you like to travel and see foreign countries that part was very well executed! And I thought Julia Roberts was lovely in her role of Elizabeth Gilbert, a divorced woman trying to find herself and find happiness.
But let's be up front here people, the REAL reason I went to see the movie was James Franco, my second favorite actor next to Johnny Depp. He was wonderful! I love him. And if I was Julia Roberts I could not have left him to go roaming around the world--hee!
Some people have asked me if they would like the movie. I really can't say for sure. I would say you should read the book first which I did when it first came out so I might need to re-read it! Then there is my friend who shockingly hated the book and I told her she should still see the movie--she MIGHT like it. The scenes are beautiful and it does feel that you have been transported to Italy, India and Bali.
It was a lovely way to spend a Friday night! Have you seen the movie & did you like it? Have you read the book? Was your theater freezing? Finally, most importantly, what did you eat?
