Julie & Julia

Factual error: The story starts out in September 2002 and ends in 2003. Julie receives a call about Julia Child's 90th birthday in 2003. She would have been 91, born 15 Aug 1912.

Continuity mistake: The special mortar that Julia's husband gives her doesn't look the same as the one Julie sees in the kitchen display. It's indicated that it's the same one.

Other mistake: In Meryl Streep's simulation of Julia Child's famous potato pancake flipping fiasco, the stove isn't turned on. In the original Julia Child "French Chef" program, copious amounts of steam and sizzle were emanating from the skillet.

Chosen answer: It's entirely possible that she got a PO Box, which would allow her to receive goodies and keep her address private at the same time.
