What Men Think When They Watch the ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ Trailer

Eat, Pray, Love is a pop culture phenomenon. It was #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for 57 weeks, so now, of course, it’s a movie. The film has three things that will kill with women: the beloved book; Julia Roberts; and the creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, coming on to direct. But if it’s gonna make the big money and become a Hollywood smash, it’s going to have to play to men as well. At least a little bit. How’s that going? Well, let’s see what men think when they watch the Eat, Pray, Love trailer.

That could’ve gone better.

    I get it. It’s like “The Razor’s Edge” meets “My Fair Lady.” Except Rex Harrison is a toothless asian and Julia Roberts has fake tits.

    Or something like that.

    When I saw the preview, I didn’t know it was ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ at first, and I just kept thinking, “Oh no, Bali is such a lovely place, and Julia Roberts is going to ruin it by encouraging ‘Sex and the City’-grade women to visit. Stop them!”

    I was too late.

    “Based on the incredible true story.”

    Incredible? The lady goes on vacation.
    True? Of course it’s true–nothing happens.

    Eat, pray, quief. Matt Stone and Trey Parker got this one right. Men will watch this only if they really, really, really want sex.

    Ok, first, whoever cut this trailer together to get their point across did nothing for me except annoy the hell of out me. I wanted to see what my honest opinion was of the trailer and how it made me feel, but APPARENTLY I didn’t have the choice cause the knucklehead who put this trailer on Youtube did it for me. Secondly. REALLY, somehow, if you’re a man, you don’t like books? Get real! So yeah, I would of commented on this post, and maybe stayed on topic, but this video just pissed me off enough to say, “I really don’t care what you think”.
    Thank you.

    About Me

    Twitter: @b_donovan

    I am a writer, actor, and North Korean Dictator. Over the years though I've written for everything from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to Fox News to Chapelle's Show, and can be seen frequently on Vh1 making snide remarks at the expense of others. Recently I was the Head Writer of "Fair Game", a news and comedy show from Public Radio International. My interests range from news to sports to entertainment, so this blog should read kinda like the evening news, except funnier and with less Brian Williams. Fuck Brian Williams.
