I don't usually do movie reviews, but my wife and I saw this movie yesterday and loved it. It was really fun, and Meryl Streep was more Julia Childs than Julia Childs was. I never watched her cooking show all that much because she didn't cook the kinds of things I'm into, but I enjoyed her personality and her love of cooking.
One warning, though, I almost had to leave before the end to head for the nearest restaurant. By the time the movie was over I would have eaten a can of dogfood. We got to where we were going to eat and I pointed to the menu and told the waitstaffer, "I'll have one of each. With extra butter."
