Good fun.
A bit too long, too many fake french accents but a very loving portrayal of two nice women in a non chick flick kinda way.

Thought it was quite sweet - no need to see it in the cinema but overall, nicely done - agree on too many bad fake french accents but yes, rather nice - quite a feel good film, if a little long!

I must get my act together enough to see this - heard Nora Ephron talking about it on R4 and she did a good selling job. She really loves Meryl Streep.

Have to agree on the french accents, they were awful! A lovely film though, I really liked the way they interwove the stories.

Was I the only one completely thrown by the fact Julia Childs' husband looked exactly like Alf Garnett?

I saw it last night. I thought it was marvellous, I laughed a lot. I adore Meryl Streep and she was particularly excellent in this, lots of superb eye rolling.

I'm quite inspired to buy the How to master the art of French Cooking now. I want to make her beef bourguignon
