    I'm trying like hell to reserve my judgment until I've seen the film.

    Saw the film today and was not disappointed. At all. Terrific adaptation. Celia was wonderful and so was Emma Stone as Skeeter. I didn't think Emma was right for the part when I heard about it, but she pulled it off perfectly.

    Reading the book now...in the car. At chapter 3 and love it already. Cannot wait to read the rest. Never would have known about this book if it weren't for the movie I am ashamed to say.

    I thought the movie sucked. I really was so bored during it.

    Isn't it really different? I loved it.

    Don't judge a book by its title.

    I wondered if anyone out of the South would really "get" it. I have been delighted over how many of you totally understood and loved it also. To me, it is a woman's book, with rich characters who in their own way are just fearless.

    Such a good book/movie. Just finished the book this week and thought Celia and Minny were really well cast.

    My ma walked out of the movie wondering where she can get Minny's fried chicken recipe. Anyone know if there's something special in it? Looked like shake 'n' bake to me.
