Julie and Julia

Tom and I went to see Julie and Julia movie. I loved it. So many times Tom elbowed me during the movie because he said both ladies reminded him of me. Julie with her blogging – loved the first time she got a comment on her blog. Julia with the publishing of her cook book – the first time you see your book in the form that others will see it. Even though I had my book self published it didn’t take away from the “ah” moment.

I must give Meryl Streep props for her portrayal of Julia Child. Excellent job.

The story line was very entertaining as well as inspiring. It inspired me not to give up. To keep doing what I love. It doesn’t matter what age you are, it is NEVER too late to reach your destiny or see your dreams come true.

I will have to get a copy of the book to read. I know the book is always better than the movie which makes me excited to read it.

I don’t want to say too much about the movie because I don’t want to spoil it for you, but it was worth the price of admission.

The high school friends I saw last week want to get together for this movie - I've heard such good things from everyone who's seen it. I don't do movies, but I might have to see this one before it comes out on DVD.

My granddaughter and I saw this and throughly enjoyed it. Glad you and Tom got to see it.

I went to see the movie by myself and was the youngest person in the theater! Probably the only blogger too considering the things that I laughed at that NO ONE else did.

I loved the on screen chemistry between Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci. I loved the warmth and romance they brought to the film!

You're inspiring me to read the book first. I can see how Tom would think of you with the blogging (and the writing and the not giving up part!).

Thanks for the review. Hope you're feeling on the up and up these days! Missed you!
