julie and julia

If you haven't yet, get off your booty and get yourself to the nearest movie theater to see the new Nora Ephron flick, Julie and Julia. It's phenomenal! Based off of Julie Powell's novel, Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen, the movie focuses on Julie (Amy Adams), a bored cublicle worker in New York City who blogs about getting through the Julia Child cookbook to get through her life, and Julia Child herself (Meryl Streep) and her journey creating the cookbook some decades earlier. I loved the characters, the feel-good vibe, the soundtrack, it was all perfect for a Sunday afternoon date with my mom (: One last thing: Beware, cooking fanatics! This movie will make you extremely hungry and cause an uncontrollable urge to grab your favorite cookbook off the shelf and spend endless hours in the kitchen! Drag a cute guy along as well. I've learned from Julie and Julia that cooking is extremely romantic!

  1. sweet, I love your review!
    I will wait for it come out on DVD though, going to the movies is expensive these days.
