    If you can tell the difference between a mule and a pump, attendance at The Devil Wears Prada is mandatory. You might have to reach back to "Funny Face" to find a fashion movie so on-trend.

    While the picture isn't brilliant, it is, at its most entertaining, a kicky, surprisingly astute throwback to bygone Hollywood social comedies.

    Actually one of the better comedies I've seen this year speaks volumes for the quality of the performances and the caliber of the script.
  4. 63
    A lightweight, formulaic piece of fluff, but you wouldn't know that by Meryl Streep's performance.
  5. 50
    Sometimes actors get parts so rich that they almost can't help but make meals of them. Playing a frosty, high-powered editor in The Devil Wears Prada, Meryl Streep turns the role into a four-course dinner and shows up with her own dessert...But it's hard to care about what's going on whenever she's offscreen.
  6. If you shut down your brain and simply take in the wardrobe and performances by Streep and Blunt you'll have a swell time, like aimlessly flipping the pages of a fashion magazine.

I left the movie theater without tearing the door of of it's hinges like I could've done if I had chose to watch Garfield! Me, caring much about fashion, thoroughly enjoyed watching this film, and it probably will remain in my top ten for a long while. Even if you don't care about fashion, you will enjoy this movie...if you do care about fashion, it's especially good! Expand

A best friend and beau tell her that she's changed, but Andie never truly picks up that condescending tone her colleagues must indeed practice on people outside their industry. She's too nice. At some point, she should've turned into a Expand

    A poorly written book becomes an appealing film. I work in magazines and found it at once perceptive, irritating and funny. (Believe it or A poorly written book becomes an appealing film. I work in magazines and found it at once perceptive, irritating and funny. (Believe it or not, all that backstabbing does go on. And the high heels are true. So is the way the girls are judged by the way they dress. Boys are generally exempt.) Anne Hathaway's character is a complete drip and so is her boyfriend. The film is Streep's and Blunt's. In Emily Blunt, I think we have a screensensation. Watch "My Summer of Love" if you don't believe me. Expand
