Juxtaposes the difficulties faced by two women with similar interests who lived in different times and places. The younger one draws on the experience of the older to make sense--and some measure of success--of her own life. The act of re-creating the recipes in the famous cookbook as faithfully as possible, within a limited time frame, provides not only a challenge to the woman in the modern era, but also the link with the older woman who originally created the recipes. A thoroughly charming premise, and enjoyable performances.
it was so amazing i saw it 7 times
I really enjoyed the movie. I thought Meryl was excellent and funny. If you don't love food or the kitchen, don't even try to go...Simple and charming, nothing unreal. The european touch is my favourite I am from there...but I have a but too long I agree.Don't go hungry!
This movie was amazing!!!! I thought it would of been super boring but I loved it! The only thing wrong with it was that it was so long
delightful to watch.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE MOST BORING MOVIES THAT I EVER SAW. I ACTUALLY LOOKED AT MY WATCHED WONDERNG WHEN THE DAMN THING WAS GOING TO BE OVER. IT WAS PAINFUL, BORING, BORING, BORING
Outstanding! Amy Adams holds her own against the as-usual-powerful performance of Meryl Streep.
VERY PAINFUL....2 hours of my life I will not get back.
Meryl is flawless as usual and the movie is fun and light. Very refreshing!
Loved it and I am not a fan of chick flix. but it was great and broke my heart!!
Meryl Streep has outdone herself again . She portrayed Julia Child brilliantly . I thought this movie was wonderful .
Fantastic. The acting the story, the whole thing was outsatnding. Perhaps an oscur nomanation for the new young actress who does so well.
Brilliant script and great performances all round. Kudos to director Nora Ephron.
It was alright. I hate amy adams and I have the same birthday as her...
Something to see, there's some old fashion humour, and sensational acting all around.
best movie out there. I strongly recommend it to everyone
Hey, you guys out there, dont say you dont like a chick flick. I went with girlfriend, I'm 58, I LOVED it!!!!!! I would go and see it again and again, wonderful story and the acting is second to none. Love you Merryl!!!!!!Keith
I loved the movie. I laughed out loud that is good. They did not need profanity of flashing frantic scenes to make this one great. I loved it so much I am going back to see it again. The book is not worth buying however. Sheila
OMG thats was such a great movie i loved it! i would see that again!!!!! <3
it was a very good film loved it! But the only downer is that it was a little too long. would see angain.
ITS SOOO FUNNY IT MADE ME LAUGH SO HARD ITS GOOD FOR ANYONE TO SEE WOULD SEE IT AGAIN!!!
so funny, and such feel-good movie, would see it again. loved it!
ANY MOVIE THAT MAKES THE AUDIENCE LAUGH OUT LOUD DESIRES A 5 RATING FROM ME...I LOVED IT...
if you love cooking then you'll love this movie. Meryl Streep is amazing as Julia Child. Very funny.
FANTASTIC & FUNNY MOVIE!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!!
GREAT movie! Meryl Streep is a wonderful actor who made everyone in the theatre laugh out loud. There were also a few moments when the audience was saying 'mmmmmmm' at some of the food that was being prepared. It was an ambitious project Julie undertook. Sometimes I wonder if the people making negative comments (they seem so generic and ranty) about great movies have even seen the movie. Or if they just like to see what they've written turn up on the internet!!
Totaly boring a wiast of time,one wonders sometimes at what do producers and directors think who waist their time and mony making movies like this one!
If you can deal with Julia's voice, you might like it. I found I was looking at my watch so that rather tells how I felt about it
Fun movie. Biographical story. Interesting presentation. Julia Childs is an icon. She was well represented in this film
Thoroughly enjoyable movie with a fabulous portrayal of Julia by Streep. Also wonderful as Julie was Amy Adams. I felt Julia's joy when she was cooking and eating and could feel Amy's grief and fatigue in the tiny little kitchen. 5 stars!
I laughed so hard that I was almost crying. One of the better movies that I have seen in a long time.
I really Enjoyed this movie...well acted...great story line...a must see!! :)
It was a lot funnier than I expected, but my friend and I are recent culinary students. We've done a few of the things in the movie.
Loved Meryl. Would have been just as happy if it was all about Julia, but the Amy / Julie piece was fun too. Get Meryl her next Oscar
Amy Adams was amazing. Loved the mix of the two stories. Meryl Streep and Amy should both be norminated for an academy award. Great movie so see it will make you forget your worries.
very boring... long.. dragged.. the trailor looks better...
There was absolutely NO PLOT to this movie. I guess I should have guessed when it was based on a cookbook. I just never thought Meryl Streep would agree to do such a stupid movie. I kept waiting for something, anything, to happen. Disappointed Lara
Fun...delicious...joyous....Meryl Streep totally rules!! 4 stars...
A truly wonderful film. Laugh-out-loud funny, touching, and sexy. Haven't enjoyed a movie so much in a long time. Meryl Streep is a wonder. Tucci is utterly charming. I want a man just like him... heck I'll take him. Go see this movie.
This was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time! It was entertaining from start to finish...if Meryl Streep isn't nominated for an Oscar I will be very surprised.
Absolutely delightful and funny. Julia Child/Streep and Julie Powell/Adams are an unforgetable pair. I haven't enjoyed a movie as much in a long time.
I loved this movie. It was fun a cute, Meryl did a phenominal job! Loved Julie's Story too! Very funny!
I was disappointed with the Movie. Would have like to seen more of Meryl Streep as Julia.
Truly entertaining ! It delivers big time with plenty of sentement, taste, recent history, humor, current society, culture and much, much more. If you've ever been to Paris you'll want to go right back and if you haven't you'll now want to. See it ! See it ! See it !
This movie was really entertaining, had brilliant performances especially by Meryl Streep and surprisingly was very romantic too! Loved it!
shes got to get her 3rd Oscar , meryl streep ,
2 stars. Meryl Streep made the movie hold together. otherwise it would collapse... like a shouffle
