Bloggers Unite: Go see 'Julie & Julia'

This movie was a great uplift to my day.

The story is Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams (the cutie from 'Enchanted') as a blogger blogging 365 days of Mrs. Child's cooking.

The movie is a delight, in my view, and I disagree with People magazine's review that Amy Adams/the blogger's side of the story was whiney or boring. It's a thrill as a blogger/writer on both ends of the story and it wouldn't have been right without the present day blogger's story, no matter what a stunner Meryl Streep, as usual, is at being a near perfection of a delightful Julia Childs.

As testament to what a good movie it is, I found out before the movie started (from some hens that were telling everyone and the manager at the movie theater) that there was something wrong with the last 20 minutes or so of the actual film in our theater. The theater was packed, and wouldn't you know it the picture started to go in and out of blurriness in the last twenty minutes. No one left the theater. We all wanted to know how it turned out. We got to see the end, with a little eyestrain, and every single person in the theater received two tickets to see a free movie. Now you can't beat that.:)
