Julie & Julia


DH and I went to see this movie on Friday afternoon :o) We'd been waiting for this to come out. DH was the one that brought the movie to my attention, so for his birthday at the end of July, I bought him the book. He seems to be enjoying it because every once in awhile, I'll hear him chuckling. Unfortunately he didn't get to finish the book before he saw the movie but he was okay with that.

They did an excellent job of paralleling the lives of the two main characters. Check out Julie's real Blog! I learned a lot about Julia Child too. There were many things I never knew about her. I didn't even know that she was married! And what can I say; Meryl Streep did a brilliant job of capturing Julia. DH says there is so much more in the book and you get to know the characters a lot better. I'm next in line to read it ;o)

There's something fun about going to a movie on a weekday afternoon. Not only were there very few people there but we were in one of those awesome theatres with the comfortable seats. To top that off, I even got my slushie!!!! Do you know how long I've waited to have one of those???? Pure bliss...

Did I happen to mention that Stanley Tucci acts as Julia Child's husband in the movie? Stanley Tucci. Tucci :o)

This is the ONLY summer movie I have been waiting to see! I liked the book, but I LOVE the movie trailers. But since we are in Montreal (and BUSY), I will have to wait until Wednesday or Thursday to see it. I can't wait. (Oh, I learned to cook from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking when I was a child. And I have one of her cookbooks autographed.)

I'm going to have to go see that one. I saw Meryl Streep and Nora Ephron interviewed on Charlie Rose.

I love a afternoon movie. Nothing makes me feel more decadent!

I was going to go see this one, but I didn't get to it. Now I'll definitely need to see it.

I've been living under a rock. I guess this is how I'll keep up with society, LOL.

Thanks for the review. I will have to rent that! I've been watching stuff like Transformers and G.I. Joe. Never claimed to be normal! ;o)
