Julie & Julia

I cannot believe it took me THIS LONG to see Julie &; Julia.  I mean, it's a chick flick.  It's got food.  And it's about BLOGGING!  What more could I ask for?

Typically I am not a review type of girl.  I don't review books.  I don't review movies.  I also don't post recipes, but that's another post altogether.  I've got to tell ya, this was one good movie!  Well worth the wait.

The gist of the story is this:  young girl is in need of "something" in her life.  With the help of her husband she starts a blog to document her adventures as she cooks her way through Julia Child's cookbook.  Her tagline is 365 days, 524 recipes.

The setting:  Queens, New York.  The year:  2004 (but flip-flopping with Julia Child's life).

The characters: LOVED Julia Child's character, as well as her husband.  Julie and her husband could have been a little deeper, yet I still felt very involved with them.

I was engaged!  It was funny!  There was one tiny thing about the ending that disappointed me, but I won't spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet.

And if you haven't seen it, do!  

(No, I'm NOT being paid to write this.  I wasn't even paid to see the movie.  Hey, don't people make money doing this?  Where's my money!?!)

Just picked up Julia Child's book, My Life in France. Want to read Julia & Julia when I finish it, then see the movie. Like you, chic lit (chick flick), food & blogging - there shouldn't be anything to dislike!
