    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.
  3. 70
    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.

    This near-perfect summer sleeper (at least it was a sleeper to me) provides a tour de triumphe performance by the one and only Meryl Streep, This near-perfect summer sleeper (at least it was a sleeper to me) provides a tour de triumphe performance by the one and only Meryl Streep, and good fun, and a few heartbreaks, in between.
