Mark Kermode On Eat, Pray, Love

I don't agree with Mark Kermode about a lot of films (I thought he was dead wrong about Inception for example) but I really liked his take on Eat, Pray, Love. I tried the book a few months back over a pot of tea in Borders and thought it was ghastly Oprah bait: a spoiled yuppie, discovers an Atlas and goes foreign. I was so irritated by the tone that I gave up at page 30, so, who knows, maybe it gets better after that. Anyway, this is Kermode's take on the film, which, unless I am being tortured at a CIA black site or something, I will probably not see.
