As enjoyable as this foodie movie is, you wish it would take a deeper, more nuanced measure of the women who, in two different eras, star in the movie's kitchens.

Even if you don't give a shiitake mushroom about food, there's much to savor in this lively comedy with dramatic aftertastes.

Meryl Streep -- at her brilliant, beguiling best -- is the spice that does the trick for the yummy Julie Julia.
