Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery.

The movie created an issue in Rome due to a "creative license" made by the filmmakers. The city of Rome hosts two football teams (AS Rome and SS Lazio), fierce rivals. In Elizabeth Gilbert's original novel (on which the film is based) it is made clear that Mr Spaghetti was a SS Lazio fan. However, due to the limited appeal and knowledge of the "SS Lazio" team outside Italy, the filmmakers decided to made him an "AS Rome" fan. This decision enraged the local SS Lazio fans (who of course became immediately objects of mockery by the AS Roma fans). See more »

The only way to make a movie with an unlikeable, selfish, self-absorbed protagonist worse is to make it WAY too long. That is what we have here, folks. This movie is a monument to both feminist narcissism and boredom. Robert's character whines and complains about a life that most people would love to trade places with. The direction was surprisingly sub-par, as was the acting. Overweight lonely secretaries that have read the book MAY make it through to the end, but everyone else will either be in deep REM or left the theater. Nice scenery for a bicycle ride does not a great movie make. Not kidding, the storyline here is so bad that it makes "Showgirls" look like "L.A. Confidential." This is not even worth a Redbox buck.
