As mentioned, I’ve read a quarter of the Julie & Julia Project book with lukewarm feelings, despite my excitement for the movie.

On Saturday, Kaitlyn and I did see the film and definitely enjoyed it. The food. The bruschetta. I don’t know how they did it, but that food looked amazing.


Did anyone else see it this weekend? What did you think?

We thought it was good. I did found myself comparing the movie to the actual book for the first 30 minutes, but luckily I began to let go of my assumptions and actually enjoy the story being told on film. I adored Julia, and Kaitlyn found a strong connection with Julie (she happens to be a food blogger with an adorable boyfriend as well). I think it’s safe to say that if I ever do finish the book, I will continue to prefer the movie more.

    I saw the movie on Saturday night. I liked it, but not quite as much as I thought I would. I loved the Julia part of the story, but couldn’t really relate to Julie. Overall though, it was still a very cute and entertaining movie.

    Did you feel that the ending was sort of unresolved? Because my friends and I sort of felt that way.

    @ Kim: No problem! I hope you like it too.

    @ Laina: Yep, I felt it was kind of unresolved. I swear I thought Julia was going to walk in the Smithsonian set to meet Julie. But in a way I think it was nice that there wasn’t a resolution, it does seem more real that way.

    Haven’t seen the movie yet, but it’s on my list to do this week!

  6. You weren’t kidding about the bruschetta. I love Amy Adams and thought she was so fun to watch… my mom kept looking at me and laughing – relating to the “You have 1 comment: your mom”…

    Good flick.
