* ScullyBox: Done (at least with camera angles and digital technology) in order to make Streep look 6'2.

* BigFun : Julia is adorable, and when her sister (Creator/JaneLynch) shows up, all the two do together is laugh. In real life, Julia was 6'2" and her sister 6'4".

----

to:

** Julie and her circle of more successful friends, particularly the blogger. There's even a discussion of it, wherein an honestly bewildered Eric points out that men generally LIKE their friends.
* WhereAreTheyNow
WhereAreTheyNow : A brief blurb at the end tells us that Paul died in 1994, and Julia in 2004. Julie became a writer and her book became a movie.

** Notably averted with both the main couples in the film, though. Julia Child was never a great beauty, nor her husband more than average looking, and Julie and Eric are about equal in attractiveness.

The other story is about Julia Child herself (played by the great MerylStreep) and how she came to (help) write that cookbook and become a great cook. We meet her in the beginning of the film in the late 1940s, when she moves to Paris. She is the life of the party, so exuberant that most people love her despite her impropriety, which is good because she is married to a diplomat. Now, the wives of diplomats are rarely required to do anything; Julia knows she needs to do something to keep from going crazy. After unsuccessful (as in unenjoyable) attempts at hatmaking and learning to play bridge, she decides to take a cooking class at Le Cordon Bleu. On determining that she already knows what the cooking course is attempting to teach her, she asks the woman running the place (who is one of the few people who dislike her, and the feeling becomes mutual) if there is anything more advanced. There is--the course for professional chefs. So Julia takes that one and loves it...

One story is about Julie Powell (played by Creator/AmyAdams). Julie is a government worker and unsuccessful writer who has just moved to a depressing part of Queens for a larger apartment (relatively speaking) and to be closer to her husband's place of work. Her work is depressing -- the year is 2002, and she is dealing with a lot of calls related to 9/11. When she learns that one of her friends, one she considers vapid, is writing a blog, she wants to write one herself. She and her husband discuss what it should be about, because it is supposed to be a distraction from her depressing life. They finally decide it should be about cooking. She has a copy of Julia Child's cookbook ''Mastering the Art of French Cooking'' and so she decides to cook every recipe in it in one year (please note that there are [[{{Doorstopper}} over five hundred recipes]] included in it). This, even though she has a husband, a job, and a cat, and is only home in the late evening. It quickly becomes an obsession.
