Movie Trailer Review

"Eat, Pray, Love"

By our guest blogger, Joel Crabtree

"Eat, Pray, Love," based on the memoirs of Elizabeth Gilbert, will be this summer's "sleeper" hit. I put sleeper in quotes because there's no surprise that "Eat, Pray, Love" will make tons of money. It is this year's "Julie & Julia," or "Mamma Mia!"

The first key to success for "Eat, Pray, Love" is that it's an adaptation of an immensely popular book (unread by me). It has a seriously dedicated following, and all of those dedicated readers are going to want to nitpick all the right and wrong steps the movie takes.

Julie Roberts is Elizabeth Gilbert (reason No. 2 for the film's likely success), who has reached a point in her life where she needs a new direction. The opportunity presents itself after her divorce, where she travels to around the world to gain a fresh perspective on life.

Roberts is a seasoned actress who really knows how to pick roles. She also lends "Eat, Pray, Love" a certain credibility that will reassure fans of the book. In the wrong hands, "Eat, Pray, Love" could turn into a Lifetime movie. But Roberts combined with the popular source material (it's a best-seller for a reason, right?), the film will likely avoid that potential pitfall.

The exotic locales of the film, however, are the highlight of the trailer. Playing up the travel aspect of the "Eat, Pray, Love" could bring in movie-goers who are unfamiliar with the source material.

"Eat, Pray, Love" comes out Aug. 13, 2010, and when it exceeds $100 million domestically, nobody should be surprised.
