Fresh: Like a beautiful home cooked meal, Julie & Julia is not perfect by industry standards, just warm, comforting and very, very enjoyable.

Rotten: 'Julie & Julia': Facile, slapdash and terribly repetitive

Turned out to be an okay film. A little upset with the ending but that is because I have a deep desire to know what happened after. There had to something that happened after to get the true happy ending, right? : )
