Julie and Julia

I just watched Julie and Julia again for the seventh or eighth time.  I love it.  I love it so much that I bought it tonight for $7.99 at the local DVD store going out of business.

If you like Meryl Streep (and who doesn't?) and Amy Adams (ditto) and Stanley Tucci (ditto ditto) and happy, feel-good movies, you will love it, too.  And the fact that it is based on a real story makes it even better.

I did like The Blind Side and I did think Sandra Bullock's Oscar-winning performance was good, but IMHO, I think some popularity and sympathy voting (Bullock had never won one before and Streep has) accounted for her win this year.  I believe Streep deserved it.  She had Julia Child down pat. 

Anyway, if you haven't seen it, you should. 

You really should.
