Julia! America’s Favorite Chef (2004)

This a Covid-19 2020 minireview!

“Julia did what she does best; she had a good time.” – Narrator

Number of Times Seen – 1 (15 Dec 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Documentary about the life and career of one of the most famous television chefs.

Bottom Line – Great and informative documentary that is able to shed light on how Julia Childs became a household name in the kitchen. The interviews are quite enjoyable to watch because they add so much more information about her life and how she gained the stature that she reached.  The film is able also try and explain why and how she became such a phenomena in a world where cooking shows like hers were completely unheard of beforehand. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In a 1978 Saturday Night Live sketch (episode 74), she was parodied by Dan Aykroyd, who—as Julia Child—continued with a cooking show despite ludicrously profuse bleeding from a cut to his thumb, and eventually expired while advising, “Save the liver.” Child reportedly loved this sketch so much she showed it to friends at parties (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
