On "Julie & Julia"

From The Dispatch:

Meryl Streep owns it, of course, as she always does, but with the movie split into two halves that never really meet, neither has a chance to make as deep an impression as they would have alone, Child's half especially. I would much rather have spent two hours with a story about her life than with Powell and her cookbook. The Powell/blog odyssey veers more into typical romantic comedy territory, whereas the Child side is much more compelling, thanks mostly to Streep and her rapport with co-star Stanley Tucci.
