The international bestselling book that this movie was based upon was raved about for many a year by many a backpacker and the like. Then they cast Julia Roberts in the lead and made a complete cheese fest out of what was an overall decent book. Don't get us wrong, we like Roberts in many a flick, but this was not her role. Anyways, if you can get passed that, you still may enjoy this. Roberts plays a woman who realises that she has never actually found happiness in anything she has striven for, both in her marriage and her career. After her divorce she decides to up sticks and travel the world to find inner peace, oh and Javier Bardem.
