Yesterday we took in a matinee performance of "Julie & Julia", & it was GREAT!! Even my husband, who originally joked that I should "wake him up when it was over" enjoyed it. Meryl Streep truly had Julia's voice, appearance, & mannerisms down pat - completely AMAZING. I don't think there's another actress alive who could have done it so well. Stanley Tucci was also terrific as Paul Child. And even though many reviewers didn't care for the modern "Julie" part of the story, they really worked it in well, & I don't think it would have been even remotely as good of a movie if it had just been a straight bio-pic of Julia Child. Anyway - for any of you foodies out there who ever enjoyed "The French Chef", I really think you'll like this movie.
