Reviews:
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A]nyone with even fleeting interest in writing or in eating will want to revel in this two hour long celebration of love, life and Lobster Thermador." - 07/23/2009 Box Office


"Delivering an elegant approximation of the woman's distinctly flutelike vocal pitch and endearing mannerisms, Streep abundantly conveys the warmth, rich humor and joie de vivre so evident in Julia's TV appearances and her writing." - 07/24/2009 Variety


"The performances go a long way toward selling the characters; Meryl Streep creates an uncanny version of Julia Child, of course with a spot-on accent." - 08/05/2009 Chicago Sun-Times


"[Meryl Streep] is too fantastic for words....Streep's larger-than-life Julia is kept earthbound -- barely -- by the always-welcome Tucci, who gives a graceful performance as an unassuming diplomat with a big heart..." - 08/06/2009 Movieline


"JULIE & JULIA does it right. A consummate entertainment that echoes the rhythms and attitudes of classic Hollywood, it's a satisfying throwback to those old-fashioned movie fantasies where impossible dreams do come true." - 08/07/2009 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "It's a light and entertaining treat, with winning performances, sharp writing and some happy surprises." - 08/07/2009 USA Today


"The remarkable thing about the Julia segments, given Ms. Streep's daring flirtations with caricature, is how full and affecting they prove to be." - 08/07/2009 Wall Street Journal


"JULIE & JULIA proceeds with such ease and charm that its audacity -- a no-nonsense, plucky self-confidence embodied by the indomitable Julia herself -- is easy to miss." - 08/07/2009 New York Times


"[T]artly witty....JULIE & JULIA is the movie American foodie culture has been waiting for." -- Grade: B+ - 08/14/2009 Entertainment Weekly


"Meryl Streep -- and her brilliant, beguiling best -- is the spice that does the trick for the yummy JULIE & JULIA..." - 08/20/2009 Rolling Stone
