Julie And Julia

Julie And Julia Poster

Rated: PG-13

Running Time: 123 Minutes

Release Date: 7-Aug-2009

Nudity: None

One Sentence:  So much fun for such a small story. 

No explosions, hardly any conflict, no sex, no fights, only 2 womens stories and a whole lot of butter.  It seems like a horrible combination and at over 2 hours long it just sounds like something that I would not even be interested in, let alone tell you all to add to your queues, but I am.  Add it to your queue.  Julie and Julia is a wonderfully addicting simple story, that made me pay attention to every word spoken and every dish cooked.  It was a perfectly crafted life story movie that I could not get enough of. 

Even at over 2 hours it hardly felt long, Amy Adams and Meryl Streep made the movie work completly.  It was just a fly on the wall day to day life story of these 2 women who's lives were connected, and I just kept on being interested.  Perhaps it was the underdog feel, or just a good story being told by good acting and direction, but I have nothing bad to say about this movie.  So it comes highly reccomended. 

This movie is a renter though, and that is purely because thee is nothing in this movie that should make you and your date pay $17.50 to see it like I had to.  (Not screened for me)  It is fun, funny, and cute, but does not warrant a big screen outing, unless you are dying to go to the movies and don't want to see G.I. Joe.  It is up to you, but I think you would do fine with it at home on the couch.

  • People just going to this movie to see the fantastic Meryl Streep act are going to be happy to learn it’s also a great movie that’s very well written and well directed and Stanley Tucci and Amy Adams are fantastic in it as well.
