This made my weekend!! How I would love to give up this business and travel around the world. GO JULIA!!!
You do realize Julia Roberts didn’t actually do that. She’s an actress pretending to do that. Felt like I needed to mention that.
Ew. Okay, publicist #4.
hello – I can’t wait….
why don’t you do it?
really. go for it. what an incredible thing to do with one’s life, eh?
or…. play it safe.
peace to you can’t wait.
Looks like a truly beautiful film. But where are the vampires?
Julia’s teeth and earnestness bores me and is so 1980′s.
C’mon! Enough, Hollywood! No more Julia Roberts can’t find a good man flicks. I have been doing this business with her for going on 3 decades now and I’m done. She’s two years older than me and I am a grandmother. Can she at least start playing a more mature role? Kids? Hubby? Menopause? Something? UGH.
Then you should read this book or see this movie. It’s about a woman who has spent her whole life “looking for the right man” and finally STOPS and looks for herself. It’s exactly the kind of role she SHOULD be taking.
Stops and looks for herself spending a small fortune doing something real people can’t afford. Let’s see a Julia movie about dealing with a jerk 20 year old manager with a college degree, and ad buzzwords jerking her around.
She would read the script and throw up.
Julia is BACK! This looks like a great summer film with an outstanding supporting cast….love it
Ew. Okay, publicist #3.
wow,i am looking forward to it ,haha
looking pretty darn good. I am an alpha male and I want to see this.
I predict $100 million b.o. easy.
This is porn for middle-aged housewives… no husband will be allowed to sleep for a week without a deep, long conversation about the meaning of their relationship, intimacy, and inner peace… God help us all.
Thanks for the warning, pal. I’ll get my earplugs and sleeping pills now.
This movie appears to be trying too hard–it’s a little self-indulgent and seems to be living in a different era when people had the money to follow their fanciful whims. I’ll be skipping it–and Julie Robert’s smug self, too.
Couldn’t agree more. I found nothing compelling in the trailer. It feels precious and fake and touchy-feely-global, like I should be wearing a loose organic cotton tunic and yoga pants. Much as I’d like to see a good character-based movie about a woman over 40, this ain’t it!
That has to be the worst and oldest and lamest plot for a movie – some ditz going in search of her ‘self’. Because everyone knows that when you can’t find your ‘self’, it’s because it’s been federal expressed to Timbuktu or Chile and you have to fly there and bring it back. Good grief. And this movie only gets lamer when it isn’t even her ‘self’ Julia’s searching for; it’s another boyfriend. Personally, if I was a ‘self’ belonging to someone that shallow, needy, whiny and utterly incapable of standing on her own two feet, I’d get the hell out of her myself. And I would make sure Julia never found me.
Whenever I pass the poster I involuntarily spit on it. Carolyn is awesome!!
This is based off a memoir you know. The plot basis of it actually happened.
Brilliant editing by Murphy’s long time colleague… Buecker rules. AFI forever.
I know right!!!!! I’m looking forward to it too.
Unless you are a person of dubious intellect and questionable moral fiber, I CAN’T WAIT, lower your expectations exponentially (although I have my doubts… I mean, if a trailer can make your weekend, perhaps it’s time to get a boyfriend or, at the very least, a dildo). Have seen the movie and it is simultaneously ridiculous and boring. Tone deaf to the day and age we live in to such an extent as to suggest that Ryan Murphy isn’t merely a subtalent in the realm of filmmaking (hard to make the same suggestion in television, where his particular brand of hatred and snark has somehow found an audience — well, a network audience, at least), but actually the antichrist. This isn’t a movie so much as it is a recruitment tool for future suicide bombers.
This another movie trailer that makes me wonder the amount of crack being smoked in Hollywood? It looks awful and boring, kind of just like Julia Roberts career the last 10 years.
This is trailer is infinitely better than I thought. I’m actually curious to see the film. Though it’ll probably be as great as Twilight: Eclipse.
And Julie acting all nice makes me want to barf. One of the biggest bitches in Hollywood.
She’s gone from guy to guy her whole life and thinks she’s never done anything for herself?
I guess that’s what they call the female perspective.
Awful book. Couldn’t even finish it.
Thanks for mentioning this. Totally overrated, as will be the movie and Julia’s performance in it. Void of life, soul and honesty. Can’t wait to pass.
Looks like a TV commercial for a holiday resort.
They will have to put a gun on me to make me see this.
What’s that horrible song that plays through it?
Looking forward to the Apatow-helmed sequel “Drink, Fart, F–k.”
I’m E,P,L’s target audience, and I’d rather see an Apatow movie with fart jokes every line rather than this. Didn’t we have to suffer from this already in Under a Tuscan Sun?
Agree, but have to say Under the Tuscan Sun was more appealing. At least it wasn’t pretending to be meaningful – just a light, fluffy chick flick fantasy. Eat, Pray, Love seems to have pretensions of digging deeper for some kind of spirituality or cosmic-ness or something.
Exactly! This waste of paper (and now film) trumpets selfishness as not only super-awesome, but attempts to staple on legitimacy with a little Dervish dance, supposing substantial enlightenment. It only makes you a little woozy, and still standing in the same place you were before.
It’s now been over 40 years since The Beatles went to India looking for foolishness. It seems that memory is short, and the time is ripe for a “female perspective” on the Thumbsucker’s Journey.
I thought that most people left Ayn Rand-flavored kool-aid behind in the Objectivist club in high school.
Give it three (more) years, and this “movement” will be as dead, tired and irrelevant as “The Secret” and “Da Vinci Code” is now. The only downside is that something more insipid and indulgent is certain to follow.
How great does this look? Totally the escape my mind has been fantasizing about lately. Can’t wait!
I hope I don’t have to add this to the list of “Books that changed my life that were made into terrible movies” (such as The Time Traveler’s Wife)
