Hoping movie is better than the book

Everyone seems to always say "Oh, the book is so much better than the movie!" And for me, 99 times out of 100 that is correct. I can think of very few excepts... I think The Time Traveler's Wife was a better film than movie (read my movie review and my book review if you want). And other than that, I can't really come up with the flip-flop.

BUT! I saw a preview for the film version of Eat Pray Love. It stars Julia Roberts, one of my all time favorite actress's ever and I am hoping beyond hope that the film is better than the book. I hated the book, as you can see if you go here to read my review. I think I might be the only woman on the face of the Earth who hates that book, so I have very high hopes that Roberts makes this a visual feast for the eyes, because the written word didn't leave me wanting more.

The only reason I'm going to see the film version of this dreadful story is because of Roberts. Only she could save it.

Guess we'll see, come August!
