When I heard about this movie, I sort of gasped. One of my top 5 favorite humans ever playing another one of them. WE ARE SO THERE. :) (Even though I heard the book was lame.) I don't even care.

I think the Julia Child part looks great. Someday I'll get a DVD of this movie and watch only the Julia Child parts, because I do not give a hoot about that annoying Amy Adams character. Julia Child is amazing - she's good enough to get her own damn movie!

I agree.

All the reviews I'm reading say it's really two movies. The one about Julia Child is really good, the one about What's-her-name is...well, not.

Sounds quite similar to the ideas I've heard about the book.

I'm really excited about this movie too! Where did you get your Julia Child print?

I looked for it everywhere after seeing it at the Smithsonian AmHist and with zero success in the first endeavor, I ended up having a 5 x 7 printed from my photo that day, which turned out pretty okay (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3502/3793210936_5ae7b3564b.jpg). Would still prefer a purchased image if it were crisper, btu this is okay for now.

The book was very lame, but the movie won't have much to do with the book because there is very little of Julia Child's story in the book, it's mostly Julie Powell's. I'm so psyched to see this movie too!

Yay Toby! /random icon love Toby loved Julia Childs, so she must be good.

The movie reviewer from the newspaper told us at a party a couple weeks ago that Meryl Streep is brilliant in the role, but when Amy Adams came on the screen, he wanted to claw his eyes out. I guess that pretty much reinforces the previous movie & book reviews. Still... I'd like to see it just for Meryl's performance. The trailers are hilarious!

The Amy Adams part wasn't bad at all -- I totally thought it would suck but I ended up kind of liking it.
