Eat Pray Procrastinate

It’s me again – not working. So this morning I was allowing myself the usual faff time before settling down to wrestle with the script that I’m growing to HATE with every fibre of my being (it’s supposed to be a comedy – it’s not funny – or maybe I’ve just been looking at it for too long – I want to strangle myself etc) and I watched the trailer of Eat Pray Love. Now I love Julia Roberts. I think she’s a really good actress as well as being gorgeous in an individual way. She brings a zingy freshness to her roles. And I admire how she took time to step back and bring up her family. Yes I know it’s easy to do when you have tons of money but still, I admire her for stepping back while she was at the top.

But despite all this I think I’m going to hate Eat Pray Love. Based unreasonably on the trailer:

1. I hate it when Hollywood tries to understand women.
2. The brief scene when the heroine is in Italy and gasp – eats a plate of pasta. Oh I get it. She’s so outrageous – she eats carbs! Wow that’s really finding yourself.
3. And cake – she eats cake! Carbtastic!
4. On her journey across an astonishingly poverty free India and Bali, while eating carbs and finding herself she meets a rough hewn man. He doesn’t shave and looks like he’s no stranger to garlic. And he’s Javier Bardem.

The End (I bet)

I’ll probably still see it though.
