Fixing The Eat, Pray, Love Poster

Eat, Pray, Love, of course, is the best-selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert about how she is super self-absorbed and took a fucking vacation. I haven’t actually read the book, so I can’t actually speak to whether or not it’s the worst book ever. I’m sure it’s great. It sounds great. But I did watch Elizabeth Gilbert give a speech at the TED Conference, and that I CAN say is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. What a ridiculous, selfish woman. Anyway, now they’ve turned that book into a movie starring Julia Roberts. That sounds about right. You can see the trailer here. This is the first official poster. Cool. Neat poster. It features Julia Roberts impishly enjoying some dick ice cream on an Italian park bench because she is finding herself, while some nuns also enjoy ice cream, probably because the word PRAY is in the title. You’ve nailed it again, Dr. Posters.

Personally, this poster definitely makes the movie look appropriately unbearable. But a lot of people don’t have the keenly sensitive eye for awfulness that I have refined over the years. (I am like the Elizabeth Gilbert of blogs! Very self-satisified and very bad at writing!) So I have fixed the poster to let people know what this movie is all about:

Better.
