The Real Deal

This is my hero - I know I've said that before. All this hype over the movie makes me feel like the rest of the world is horning in on my childhood icon. I adored her show - she got me hooked on cooking.
Saw the movie last night. Meryl was fabulous, but the "Julie" parts made me want to throw my Milk Duds at the screen - contrived, cliche, sickly. Amy Adams is a doll but I hated her in this role. It summed up everything I resent in Gen Xers.

Do you think this means the book the movie was based on (the bestseller by Julie Powell, based on her blog of this project) is a dud as well? It was on the NYT list forever, and I've been considering reading it....but it would be a bummer to be disappointed.
