Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir "Eat, Pray, Love" has a huge following. But the 2010 film based on her memoir doesn't exactly come together. What does work are the exotic locales and Javier Bardem in a romantic role. Julia Roberts plays Gilbert, a recent divorcée who decides to go on a journey of self-discovery. She eats up a storm in Italy, learns the power of prayer and the beauty of elephants in India and finds love with a hunk (Bardem) in Bali.
