Nora Ephron adapts Julie Powell's autobiographical book Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen with this Columbia Pictures production starring Amy Adams as an amateur chef who decides to cook every recipe in a cookbook from acclaimed celebrity chef Julia Child (played by Meryl Streep) in order to chronicle it in a blog over the course of a year. Streep's Devil Wears Prada co-star Stanley Tucci re-teams with the actress as Child's husband. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi
Streep was fabulous, and Tucci was the perfect husband (sexy, committed, and a little grumpy, to balance Julia's dramatic persona). I liked the storyline, but it is questionable if boning a duck is really enough of a climactic moment for most movie-goers.
Meryl Streep made this movie great. Amy Adams did a wonderful job too although her character did get on my nerves. I highly recommend this movie. My husband and I watched it twice and the second time was as enjoyable as the first.
