This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Richard is likened to Foghorn Leghorn. She compares him to James Taylor.
   Luca Spaghetti is a friend of Liz's college friend. Luca Spaghetti is a friend of Giovanni's.
   Liz embarks on her Bali romance with Felipe and allows herself to love and be loved after learning to find pleasure in Italy and exorcising her demons in India. She decides to make that leap with little to no hesitation or self-doubt. Divorced dad Felipe, also, does not waver in his devotion to Liz. At the end of the book she takes Felipe to a tiny island called Gili Meno, which she described as "one of the most important places in the world to me." Liz is still wracked with insecurity at the thought of entering fully into the relationship with Felipe, and a shadow of doubt crossed over divorced Felipe's face as to whether or not he could allow himself to trust someone again. Felipe is shown to have trust issues, and so did Liz, and she initially balked when he asked her to make the leap and take a boat trip with him to an island.
   Elizabeth gets a book deal to go on her trip. It is paid for by the advance. She doesn't get a book deal, and goes on the trip for her own personal reasons.
   For Luca Spaghetti's birthday, a group gathers together for an American-style Thanksgiving feast at another couple's home in the countryside, but without the turkey because it would have taken too long to cook. It takes place at Giovanni's home, because his mother is present, clucking out orders and judgments in equal measure. Luca explains that he forgot to defrost the turkey in time for the meal, but the bird ultimately gets cooked in time for breakfast the next morning.
