    It was decent. The scenery obviously was great, but I thought the first half of the movie (NYC/Italy) was a little empty. I also didn't like how it just immediately went from one place to another in two frames, and for that reason the pacing always seemed off to me. Most Americans don't even know that Bali is in Indonesia, and with all the mentions of Brazilians while there and the landscape, most of them probably think Bali is in South America.

    I just started reading the book and the author bugs me, she is too self-absorbed, so I will not be seeing the movie.

    The book is fantastic, she brings up a lot of good points, plus she has my attention when she's in Italy. I've been trying to tell people here that they need to learn the art of pleasure, crazy americans. and then it's very enlightening on some things in India and Bali.

    Great book, the movie was good, they couldn't fit the entire book into the movie, but is okay.

    I just watched it.
    I wanted to like it more than I actually did- it felt a little forced at times and its pretty long- like 2 hrs 20 mins.
    It was well made, but something didnt connect for me.

    Julia Roberts is FANTASTIC though.

    I thought the part where they jumped scenes from Italy to India was pretty freakin cool. Driving through the chaos of the indian streets with that sick beat playing in the background.

    As an american, I didn't think Bali was in South America. I like how the Brazillian guy's son had an australian accent. Super cute!
