A Movie Review

Since I was off from work today I decided I needed a little treat. So, off to the movies I go. What's that? What movie did I see? I ventured in to see "Julie & Julia". Can I just tell you how wonderful it was?

I didn't really know the history behind Julia Child and I had never heard of the book before. Of course there's lots of cooking that goes on and blogging too. But I think the best part was the relationship Julia and her husband had as well as Julie and her husband.

I highly recommend it. Yes, it probably is more of a chick flick but still a great movie.

Melissa and I saw that movie and loved it! It made us want to buy the Julia Childs cookbook and start cooking from it! I really, really enjoyed the movie - much more than I expected to.

Hi Susie, I have read several blogger reviews and everyone likes it and recommends it. BUT--since it appears to be a 'chick flick' ---I may not get my hubby there.

have a great Saturday.
Hugs,
Betsy

My hubby LOVED this movie...hey...it has food in it, so why not? We both loved this movie and will buy it when it comes out on video.

I'm glad to hear this because I really want to see this movie. My husband is the chef in our family and has one of Julia's cookbooks.
Glad you enjoyed it!

Hope to see this one...thanks for the review! I won't tell hubby about it being a chick flick, so he will still go with me. :-)

My husband really wants to see this movie. My parents went to see it and raved about it. So far I've heard all great things about it! I might have to wait til it hits DVD though. I'm waiting for the animated children's movie " Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs" to come out - then the kids and I will hit the theater.
