Turkey on the floor

The biggest news in the blogosphere seems to be the casting of Meryl Streep as Julia. As someone who can tolerate her only in unaffected super-bitch roles, I pity her poor family having to listen to her rehearse until she gets the “accent” adorably right. And I totally disagree with the contention on Serious Eats that the film is “in good hands” with ol’ “I Feel Bad About My Dreck.” “Crazy Salad” and “Heartburn” were both works of verbal art, but her movies have been a leading cause of adult-onset diabetes. This is one screenwriter/director who could make broccoli rabe saccharine. Hand her Karo to script and my teeth ache already.
