Now as to why I am giving it three stars, Amy Adams character is a bore. Her story line does absolutely nothing for me. I agree with many reviewers here that I also fast forward through all of her scenes. I truly believe that this movie should have only reflected on Julia. Amy's Julie is boring and whinny. I love Amy Adams as an actress but I just wanted to slap her in this film.
Meryl Streep always seems to out do herself in each new performance and film. Being today's great character actress, her Julia Child is simply a delight to watch. Julie & Julia is actually two films playing back to back and in different times. They are woven together extremely well, but it is Meryl Streep's performance you find yourself waiting for during the "other" plot. Only a second viewing does one come to appreciate the two films and how they work together.
I cannot overstate my recommendation for this film. It is simply a fun flick and an absolute delight to watch. Meryl Streep is always worth the price of admission. Also see her in The Devil Wears Prada.
But I would strongly suggest watching a little of the real Julia Child first on Youtube, or you will miss the subtle nuances of Meryl Streep's amazing performance. Silly me, but the ending of Julie & Julia never fails to bring a tear to my eye.
