IN STORES NOW

Based on memoirs by blogger Julie Powell (Amy Adams) and chef extraordinaire Julia Child (Meryl Streep), the flick bounces between the women as they turn their love of food into a slice o' fame. While funny and fresh, the movie doesn't build to a crescendo since the pair never meet. Still, expect another Oscar nom for Streep, who's delicious as an eccentric early version of Martha Stewart. (Sony Pictures, $29)
