Julia & Jane

With Nora Ephron's "Julie & Julia" still only in its first day of theatrical release, we've already got another 2009 Meryl Streep project to gander at -- "It's Complicated," written and directed by Nancy Meyers. Meryl, it seems, is really making the rounds, cashing in on her newfound clout as a blockbuster heavyweight and collaborating with Hollywood's most prominent female hitmakers. "Complicated" -- which is due in December -- looks conspicuously like Meyers' "Something's Gotta Give," showcasing its leading lady's ageless beauty and still-alive sex drive. Will Meryl's presence alone be enough to refresh what appears to be a familiar formula? Assuming that her work in "Julie & Julia" lands her in the supporting category, might she earn double nominations at the Globes...or even the Oscars?

God. Let me just say I don't like Meryl. Blasphemous in this day and age I know, but I don't. The trailer looks good...but no one can do middle aged comedy like Diane Keaton. NO ONE.
