Julie & Julia Update

Thanks to everyone who showed up to attend the movie with me and my hubby... It was great talking to you and I hope we can do it again soon.

I liked Julie & Julia - it made me laugh, it made me cry and, most importantly, it made me hungry. (I should have eaten a big dinner before I went.) Meryl Streep was fantastic as Julia - she made us so nostalgic we pulled out our French Chef dvds and watched the real Julia make potato dishes when we got home. Dead on. Ms. Streep is amazing.

I have to say though - I really wish someone would make a "good parts version" and cut out all the Julie parts. It didn't really add anything to Julia Child's story, and to be frank, Julie came off as a little unstable and bitchy.

So in a nut shell - watch it for a compelling tale of a middle age woman's obsession with French cooking and married sex, and not the muddled, mixed up life of one food blogger... 'nuf said.


I know, I know - but I have goodies!!

To all the folks who keep checking this spot hoping I'll have something to say - hello.

As a reward for your diligence, I have a treat!

There will be a free screening of Julie and Julia this coming Thursday (July 23) at the Landmark Gateway. It starts at 7:30pm.

As if that weren't exciting enough - I have the passes you need to get in...

So drop me an email and we'll talk...

First come, first serve...

So to get in the mood, stop over at the movie website, enter the contests, check out the blog of the week and get ready to see real thing on Thursday!
