Starring: Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Stanley Tucci
Story: Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends...until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible. (Sony Pictures)
Bottom line: JULIE & JULIA is a light, funny, romantic and mostly cheerful film - but only half a solid movie exists. You’ll easily devour seconds of everything involving Julia (Meryl Streep) and gladly take the Julie (Amy Adams) leftovers home in a doggie bag…heat ‘em up for lunch the next day – or maybe not. A full course meal would have been nice.
