Julie & Julia

Meryl Streep’s half is terrific and fun and irresistible , but Amy Adams is totally incapable of playing a bitch – she comes off as merely neurotic and helpless, which just makes you feel bad for her and resent that Meryl isn’t on screen. also, Stanly Tucci = completely delicious.
I think this movie suffers most from the erroneous assumption that a story about a bitchy, self-obsessed 20-something writer is as interesting or compelling as a story about Julia Child. although perhaps if poor Amy Adams was able to give depth to her character, it could have been.
