LOVED it! (I didn't cry...hmm, but could have.)


I haven't seen it...I cry way too much to go to theaters. :) You should read Julia's book about her time in France...wonderful. Don't forget to get a copy of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking".


Cindy, i am SO excited to read your review of this movie...i can't wait to see it...i don't go to movies for me though...just for my boys...the last movie i saw at the theater for me was "titanic"...LOL...can you believe that...i will watch for this at the library when it goes to dvd...


oh, and i am sure already that i will be crying too...i cry at the drop of a hat...

cold heart-- warm hands though

hope you are feeling, I don't cry at movies...well, not in 15 years or so anyway. Last one I remember tearing up about was bridges of madison county. I think getting older has had the opposite affect on me--I cry less. Maybe it is all the medication (ha) Glad you had a nice time at the movies!

I do want to see this movie, thanks for the review. I love going to the movies. I see as many as I can! I hope I don't cry!

If you decide to cook from Julia Child- you'll have to blog about it. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I listened to the book on tape and liked it so much that I got the biography of Julia Child written by her niece- I'd highly recommend that.

And I cry at the craziest times- it must be hormones!


Yapping Cat, Yapping Cat!!! FIRST, I knew we'd click just by learning the title of your blog! Too much detail to share here, but please, check me out at But after reading your latest post re Julie & Julia, I think I'm in love! Ha! Me and my gal pals just saw it yesterday...I'm still walking around the house with a grin and happy heart! I JUST finished my post about it 5 minutes ago. And, I was only afforded a matinee because I, too, am in between jobs. A new one comes my way next week (hmm...I wonder...are there any other movies I want to see before it's back to the real world???).

And Paul - oh Paul!! (insert heavy sigh here...)...I think I want to go back to 1940'ish and live in Paris and drink wine and smoke cigarettes. Or maybe just be a time traveler? Ha!

Looking forward to getting to know you now that I've found your blog!


Well you better bring a box of kleenex if you ever want to see my sisters keeper. omgosh so sad. I started boobing in the first 5 minutes - wth?

And then swollen eyes and all 2 hours later.

I agree, it must be a menopause thing.

Like even commercials? c'mon.




I loved the movie, too. I have been reading, My Life in France and between the book and the movie you get a real sense of what Julia's life was like during that time. I don't remember if I cried at the end, but I'm sure I did. I cry ALL the time anymore. It's actually rather embarassing. I'll be talking to someone and have to choke back tears. I blame it on pre-menopause. Seriously! I did think this was a very sweet movie and had many of the same feelings as you did. Read Julia's memoir if you can-you'll enjoy it!

cherishalittle to see it now!! ~ Nina


I have waited since I first saw the initial ads months ago...I've got the big cookbook by the authors. Can't wait, hate all the swearing too. What's wrong with people in that area? My mother always said it proved that a person was not able to master the language. It seems she's correct. When they don't know what else to do that would be clever, throw out the F bomb or ???? As though we will be distracted by the lack of mastery. Hmmm!


I'm going this week with a girlfriend. Can't wait!:)


Great teaser! I'm hoping to see it Sunday. I used to cry at the drop of a hat. When my daughter was young she would watch Anne of Green Gables over and over. Inevitably I would walk in just in time to watch Matthew die. Again. And again. And I would cry. Again. And again. Now, not so much. I blame it on menopause too. Funny how it affects everyone differently.


Yes, I saw the movie with my daughter and loved it! I got choked up several times during the film.
I've always cried no surprise there :)

I'm going to see this tomorrow afternoon and CAN'T wait! guess I'll get some extra napkins so Idon't have to use the greasy popcorn ones!! Enjoy your weekend!!! xox!


YES! and loved it ... and would watch it again tomorrow. :) and yes, tears came (dare I admit, more than once).

... and I haven't seen the movie yet, but SOBBED when he dies in the book ... lol ... pre-menopause? or just a marshmallow?

I can't wait to see it and yes, I TOTALLY cry at movies. I cry just listening to the radio on the work. The day Michael Jackson died I cried all day long. When my favorite radio DJ died I cried and cried. I do feel like the older I get, the more I cry at these things. Sounds like I'm going to need the hankies!

Okay.. I keep hearing about it .. now I HAVE to see it!


I haven't read the book yet and am hoping to have enough energy to go see the movie on Sunday.

And thanks for letting me know ahead of time... I bawled like a baby in Up! Wait, who am I kidding? I can cry during a beer commercial. I'll be packing kleenex.

Everyone seems to just love this movie. I hate crying at the movies so maybe I will wait until it is out for hire/rental, then I can just cry at home


Cindy, loved the movie and the book as well. I am definitely purchasing the film when it comes out on DVD. Thought Meryl Streep did an incredible job. Loved it so much that I just finished reading My Life in France by Julia Child, which many of the Julia scenes in the movie were based on. Check it out. Oh, finally saw Harry Potter last weekend and liked it, although it was not my most favorite of the books/movies in the series. Probably because I didn't like the ending.
