I really didn't want to see this movie. However I had to kill 3 hours waiting for dd and this was the only movie playing at the right time.

I loved it. I saw it alone, btw and still enjoyed it immensely. The only thing, I would have preferred to see a story only about about Julia Child and not Julie in New York. Wonderful period piece too that showed France 1949.

They say be prepared to be hungry but it just made me want to cook some of those recipes. I'm now looking for Julia Child's first cookbook to start my own adventure through her recipes.

I still haven't seen this and really want to. And, as for watching a movie alone, I do that most of the time I go to a movie. Dh isn't a movie-goer and my dd lives too far away to go to many movies with me.

Try eBay for old cookbooks, lots of them there.

Our library has tons of cookbooks, so I'm going through them there. I just picked up Julia Child's book "The way to cook". Looks interesting.

Sandie - I also didn't really want to watch the movie but I was somehow convinced by my mother to go and I loved it! Meryl Streep & Amy Adams are great, and yes, it did want me to break out a cookbook afterwards!

I definitely will see it, but I'll have to wait now for the DVD. I never did get around to seeing it when it was in theaters. I'm glad you liked it and look forward to seeing it - someday!

This was my in-flight movie the other day! I didn't like it at all! Meryl Streep is so much better than this.

Welcome to the board! I'm sorry you didn't like the movie - especially since you were sort of a captive audience!

Oh, I hope I didn't offend anyone. i jsut thought the movie was kind of boring and her character was a little irritating. i loved her in The Hours!!
