JULIE & JULIA WILL SATISFY YOUR HUNGER FOR AN ENTERTAINING MOVIE

julie_and_julia_cut

Julia Child’s infatuation with mid-century Paris and the city’s cuisine makes for a delicious true story about her life there in the delightful “Julie & Julia.” Meryl Streep is thoroughly convincing as the towering and enthusiastic Julia and Stanley Tucci is endearing as her supportive husband. Their eventful life in France is serious competition for Amy Adams’ contrasting life in modern New York, but Amy is up for the challenge. All in all, the movie is a triumph for Nora Ephron – we thought mostly women would love this movie, but men seem to like it just as much. We walked out of the movie craving beef bourguignon. And Julia would be proud to hear that her cookbooks have hit the best seller list again.

    The clips I saw of Meryl Streep as Julia Child made me want to see this movie — the clips of the “other half” of the movie ensured I will avoid it like the plague! (Yes, I know that is considered the “point” of the movie, which is why it is *not* a movie for me)

    Miley Cyrus is a whore. By the time she is 18, she will be a hard-core whore.

    Not interested in seeing a movie about people cooking and eating. And, I’m not buying Streep as Child. She just doesn’t have the “bombasticness” in my opinion.

    PS Gerard Vandenburg/Captain America why don’t you go back to your real name you asshole, you still make absolutely NO sense whatsoever, and NEVER did you misogynistic gay bashing prick!

    Well, I saw this movie and it was very entertaining! Saw lots of men in the audience. Sure wish I could find a great husband like Julia had.

    I Really like Julia Child and Her food was amazing and she made it so that woman where excepted as cooks and her food was french and sexy and tasty and yummy to some degree but I just read her books and saw very little of her on T.V. I just could not pay attention to her for long periods of time and no one has really caught my attention to until Chef Gordon Ramsay and his screaming and insult really tuned me into cooking even more and his smart remarks is something that really makes me pay attention even more.. But Julia Child is really the first roll model in my life and of course learning from Julia is my first push into learning. But the Bull headness of Chef Gordon will always make me pay attention even more!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
