I am SO late coming to the game on this, but I finally saw Julie & Julia this week. I wanted so badly to see it in the theater, but little miss 4 year old has totally nixed movie theater visits in the past few years. I'm actually glad that I saw it on DVD, because I can watch it again & again (Netflix, I'm getting my money's worth on this one!).
My review? I love it. I heart it. It inspires me. I watched it on my 37th birthday. As it turns out, Julia Child did not start cooking (seriously cooking) until she was 37. Hmmmm....
The visuals are perfect & the food...swoon! In the "making of" extra on the DVD, one of the film makers declared that they wanted movie goers to look at each other at the end of the film & say "Where are we going for dinner???" If you watch this film & don't want to become a better cook and don't want to eat better foods, then I'm pretty sure you didn't actually watch the same film as me.
I think that Glenn better prepare himself to be a guinea pig in the next few weeks. Boeuf Bourguignon anyone?
