The Seven Reasons To See "Julie & Julia" Post.

1. It helps redeem Nora Ephron after scripting the overrated When Harry Met Sally... (and after what she did to Bewitched).

2. Amy Adams's performance, which more than makes up for Meryl Streep's overpraised comic turn (was the real Julia Child really the spiritual ancestor of Gladys from Sesame Street?).

3. Stanley Tucci as Mr. Child.

4. Alexandre Desplat's music.

5. The food!

6. The warmth and appeal it's full of.

7. Amy Adams lying face down on her bed in denim jeans, and later lying down in a shirt and nothing else. Does she even know how sexy she is?
