From the Annals of, Men are from Vegas, Women are from Santa Monica.

Seriously? Well, I mean, comedically?

Yup. Excerpt:

…Warner Bros has just acquired the rights to Drink, Play, [email protected]#k, the comedic salvo to Gilbert’s self-help manifesto. Drink, by funnyman Andrew Gottleib, tells the fictional story of Bob Sullivan, a man who, after his wife leaves him, “goes on a bender in Ireland, takes a gambling jaunt to Las Vegas, and a embarks on a sex-tourism trip to Thailand.”

Drink isn’t out until next year (on Grove Press), while the filmic production of Eat, starring Julia Roberts, is already underway. But we pop-culture seers at EW predict an inevitable battle of morals that eclipses even the battle of the sexes: those who buy into Gilbert’s brand of spiritual succor, or those would rather tango with a succubus (while ripped to the gills, naturally)…read the rest, including mention that they hope Vince Vaughn will play title character in hypothetical movie.

All laughs aside, not sure the massively corrupt, heartbreaking, depressing sex trade in Thailand is all that funny for anyone concerned. And we should allll be concerned.

    I loved Eat, Pray, Love, mostly for the writing. And I'm a dude.

    Know nothing about the above book, but find it funny that's is a fiction writ from POV of Elizabeth Gilbert's ex-husband.

    I'm also a woman who usually has the sense of humor of a man (or so I have been told…by women) and find it curious as to why drinking, playing, and f**cking would be considered male territory. Samantha is my favorite character in Sex and the City, the show and the two movies, in which she does a lot of #2 and #3.

    I loved both books. I hope they make a movie out of DPF as well. Both are equally humorous and insightful. I didn't realize that DPF was fictional until I had read the entire thing. Oh, and I am a woman with a sense of humor, FYI.
