Streep does an amazing job bringing television cooking legend Julia Child to life and making us smile every frame of the way.

You might dismiss this as a "chick flick", but I think anyone can enjoy it. You don't have to leave your "Manly-Man" card at the door.

Two movies for the price of one. Half is about the famous French cooking maven (and CIA agent). The other is about a blogger who launched a writing career blogging about her attempt to cook all the recipes in Child's cookbook. All it is lacking is a plot.

The human cornucopia that is Streep is carrying the energy and feel-goodness of this movie. Adams is providing her natural comic timing and sweetness to make Powell as human as possible, and she succeeds more than I would have thought possible, though Ju

A charming and witty biographical tale of two women who were brought together as soul mates through the art of food and the joy of cooking...

Pretty light stuff, and the movie's only goal seems to be to convey that fluffiness, as both lives are milked for generally positive comic and romantic moments.

Amy Adams is so meek she echoes Cynthia Nixon's waif servant in Forman's Amadeus. In fact, for a moment I thought she was Ms. Nixon, until I remembered that Amadeus was twenty-five years ago.

Poderia ser descrito como dois médias-metragens montados paralelamente num único longa %u2013 e o fato é que, por mais adorável que Adams seja, é a história protagonizada por Meryl Streep que segura o projeto.

What makes this film memorable and pleasurable, above all, is the ebullient performance of Meryl Streep as Julia Child, unlikely culinary trailblazer and TV star.

Ebullient, witty, and wonderfully warm-hearted Julie & Julia is a celebration of how to live life to the full.

Another patchy effort from director Nora Ephron who doesn't quite get a grip on this potentially fascinating story.

Like a beautiful home cooked meal, Julie & Julia is not perfect by industry standards, just warm, comforting and very, very enjoyable.
