Dan Aykroyd as Julia Child.
Not much different from Streep's vocal impersonation.
I don't know. I like all the actors and I found the DVD at Target for the price of a small coke at the theater, so I thought, 'Why not - TV sucks anyway.' It's a women's film, isn't it. Damn! Fooled again.
I was so bored I almost started to blog instead of watching it. Haha! The film is about a blogger hitting the big time. [She went to Patheos! Kidding.] Anyway, I have to say this is Meryl Streep's worst film ever, and based on her over the top vocal impersonation of Julia Child in the film, I am so not going to watch her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher.
Anyway. J & J is about a woman and her blog. The story did help me to understand why people add a Pay Pal app to their blogs, and confirmed for me that blogging is not only sort of a 'job' we invent for ourselves, it is indeed an exercise in narcissism as well... The fight between Julie and her more than understanding hubby proves my point. Of course, at one time or another in writing about ourselves and what we think - online - we all want to be famous and have a film done on our lives - lives which have become blogs. But like the film - they're pretty boring - our lives/blogs, I mean.
