Last week at The Glen Workshop, writer Lauren Winner referred to the book Eat, Pray, Love as…

“Masticate, Meditate, Masturbate.”

Sounds like the film is faithful to that spirit…

Here’s Steven Greydanus’s review of the movie:

It’s the Oprahfication of religion; the movie is ultimately no more authentically interested in Hindu or Indian culture generally than it is in Italian culture. Liz’s time in India is spiritual tourism, as her time in Italy was culinary tourism; it’s all a self-help consumerist approach to world cultures.
