And, Julie Powell (Amy Adams), who feels like her life is a flop, comes up with the half-baked idea of blogging about trying to make all 536 recipes in Julia Child's famous cookbook.

Me and a girlfriend just saw this movie last night.  It was so good.  It’s so nice to go see a smart, funny movie with very little cursing and “sexual situations.”  There are 3 places in the movie where the two separate MARRIED couples are seen kissing and then it progresses to where you know what’s going to happen but they don’t show it.  Both couples are completely dressed while “Making out”.  I can’t even put into words how great this movie is.  I’m very picky on what I choose to spend my money on but more importantly how I spend my time.  I will gladly spend the money & time to see this movie again…
