Julie and Julia, movie vs book


Seems everyone in the theater enjoyed the movie and had a few good chuckles at Meryl Streep playing Julia Child. The stories of how Julia finally publishes Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and how Julie becomes a writer, mesh well in the film.

I am anxious to see how the book rates against the film! Any comments re this?

I've read the book and it is purely from Julie's point of view. I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie because I really enjoyed the book.

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. I recently read the book and posted a review last week at:

Planning to go see The Time Traveler's Wife this week with a friend - that was one of my favorite books of all-time!

Alaine and Sue: Seems I have two books I have to read, after seeing the films! Sounds as if Julie and Julia will be very different from the film, which is partly based on Julia Child's own memoir.

I haven't read the book, but I loved the movie.

Just finished the book, didn't like it all...actually, I didn't like Julie. But I've heard that the movie is really good!!

Enjoyed the movie - I have actually watched it twice and both times the audience applauded throughout the movie and at the end credits.

I really enjoyed Julie & Julia,I wish the mother and brother had a role in the movie... not sure why they cut this from the film.
