Top Comments ciaochowlinda May 2, 2009 at 5:04 am Loved the book and Loved Julia Child. The trailer makes me wish the movie were coming out today. can’t wait. Jerry (CBSOP) May 2, 2009 at 5:39 am I don’t think they could have found a better Julia than Meryl Streep. this ought to be amazing!. I grew up watching Julia as well. She along with Martin Yan, Jaques Pepin and Italian Chef Pasquale were my first inspirations in cooking outside what I knew. they made me long to try something other than what I’d grown up with and inspired me to try new things. I can’t wait to see this one! Sally May 2, 2009 at 6:11 am I often wonder if there’s anything Meryl Streep can’t do? That voice — where did she get Julia’s voice? Simone (junglefrog) May 2, 2009 at 6:39 am O my God, looking at the trailer I already had to laugh! I hadn’t heard about this movie as sometimes news travels a bit slower to this part of the world, but do I want to see this movie!! Thanks for posting the trailer! Digigirl May 2, 2009 at 8:05 am Looks awesome! Can’t wait to see it. jonathan May 2, 2009 at 8:17 am With the sequel to be “Elise & Julia”? ;^) I agree – probably none better than Meryl Streep to pull this one off. Although laughing at her in my youth (who can forget Dan Aykroyd’s hilarious SNL “Save the liver!” parody? http://www.hulu.com/watch/3523/saturday-night-live-the-french-chef ), I came to realize just how big of a stamp she left on the culinary world, and what an inspiration she was to countless wanna-be chefs – myself included. And that lobster poppiing out of the pot bit? Yeah, that’s happened to me. LOL, how did I ever miss that Dan Ackroyd skit? Hilarious! (have added it to the list of links) ~Elise Natalie Sztern May 2, 2009 at 9:13 am I, being Canadian, would like to know how it came to be that Julie Powell came to be associated so closely with Julia Child? Is there a special connection? Julie Powell set out to cook every recipe in Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking and she documented it in hilarious style in her blog, and then her book. ~Elise Karen Bell May 2, 2009 at 9:25 am I saw this trailer for the first time Thursday night and laughed just at the trailer. I have already marked it on my calendar in August. This should be a can’t miss hit! doodles May 2, 2009 at 12:55 pm I absolutely cannot wait for this movie…….this will be the hit of the summer for sure…………Ms Streep can be/do anything. Thank you Nora Ephron!!!! mary May 2, 2009 at 12:58 pm I can not wait to see this movie! I may have to fly to Atlanta to watch with my sister, my favorite cooking buddy! DSX May 2, 2009 at 1:52 pm I can’t help but wonder if making the a film about Julia alone couldn’t have been pulled off, but I’m sure this will be a delight. As with miss Powell, she touched so many lives (our family even named one of our cats Julia). Peggy May 2, 2009 at 1:52 pm I couldn’t read the book because the language was too much, but I look forward to the movie. Thank goodness they toned it down. amy May 2, 2009 at 2:24 pm I am SOOOO goin to watch this when this comes out! Kathy - Panini Happy May 2, 2009 at 2:36 pm I can’t wait for this movie. Meryl Streep has Julia Child down perfectly (no surprise there!). Amanda May 2, 2009 at 5:02 pm This looks like the sweetest, sassiest movie to come out in a long time. Yay for foodie blogs in the movies! :) Julie May 2, 2009 at 5:29 pm I’ve read both books. I’m so excited to see the movie! Karen May 2, 2009 at 6:03 pm Elise, I am really looking forward to this movie. I saw a trailer for it last week and was telling my mom about it today. I’m trying to set up a date with my mom and my sister to go see it. We all love to cook, and have referred Mom as “Julia” for years! Thanks for a great blog, and great recipes! Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) May 2, 2009 at 6:18 pm I’d pay any amount of money to see Meryl Streep as Julia. I often tell people I learned to cook by watching Julia on TV. Maybe I’ll learn to act by watching Meryl play Julia. Brenda May 2, 2009 at 8:29 pm I seriously can’t wait! I followed Julie’s blog daily way back when she was doing it and I couldn’t wait to read about her adventures. Alta May 3, 2009 at 6:48 am I saw the trailer for this for the first time last night! It looks as though it’ll be a great movie, will definitely drag my husband along to go see! Erica May 3, 2009 at 9:24 am OMG, I’m laughing already. How wonderful to see Meryl take this on! Reminds me that no one is perfect, and to cook all one had to do is love food. Lisa May 3, 2009 at 2:30 pm Thanks for posting the trailer (which I haven’t watched yet). I’m also eagerly awaiting the movie. I love both of the actresses playing the leads, so am thrilled with the casting. It’s funny you mention the G-rated version thing; I was thinking earlier today that I hoped the movie makers would not sanitize Powell. Having read much of her blog and her book, I have such a strong sense of her personality and so forth that it would be a big disappointment if that’s lost. Mely May 4, 2009 at 7:36 am I agree that Meryl is great as Julia Child and can’t wait to see the movie. For all of you Julia’s fans, if you visit the Washington, DC Area, the National Museum of American History has in exhibition with Julia Child’s kitchen. She donated the kitchen to the Museum when she moved back to California. Or you can take a virtual tour here: http://americanhistory.si.edu/juliachild/ Thanks Elise for the trailer. Enjoy! And Bon Appetite! Marisa May 4, 2009 at 1:59 pm I’m with you Elise, this is the summer movie I’m most looking forward to as well! I loved Julie’s blog and have always been fascinated by Julia Child. August 7th can’t come soon enough! waisze May 6, 2009 at 11:02 am Awesome! I read the book when I was vacationing in Costa Rica, so glad it’s coming out in a movie, can’t wait. Thanks for sharing! Janelle June 4, 2009 at 6:43 pm Wow, I had NO IDEA they were making this into a movie! It’s one of my favorite books! Amy Adams definitely seems too “sweet” to be Julie Powell, though, LOL.
