We all need similar vacations to explore ourselves, but we are stuck, all of us :-)It always seems like being away for a couple of days will make every thing go insane... as if we are responsible for holding every thing together with our bare hands!

EAT PRAY LOVE was about as vacuous as a movie can get. I am making it a point to tell everyone I come in contact with just how bad it was, in the hope that the exponential growth of word of mouth will expand into the millions, and teach Hollywood an expensive lesson that we are tired of having our collective intelligence insulted by such trite pap.
I saw it with my mother and my younger sister, who are both keenly attuned to the issues facing women today, and they both deemed it "the worst movie they have ever seen," and "meaningless." It's not too late for a retraction. Please, restore my faith in you. - Alex Burke
