From Amazon.co.uk

This clever, funny big-screen adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's best-seller takes some of the snarky bite out of the chick lit book, but smoothes out the characters' boxy edges to make a more satisfying movie. There's no doubt The Devil Wears Prada belongs to Meryl Streep, who turns in an Oscar-worthy (seriously!) strut as the monster editor-in-chief of Runway, an elite fashion magazine full of size-0, impossibly well-dressed plebes. This makes new second-assistant Andrea (Anne Hathaway), who's smart but an unacceptable size 6, stick out like a sore thumb. Streep has a ball sending her new slave on any whimsical errand, whether it's finding the seventh (unpublished) Harry Potter book or knowing what type she means when she wants "skirts." Though Andrea thumbs her nose at the shallow world of fashion (she's only doing the job to open doors to a position at The New Yorker someday), she finds herself dually disgusted yet seduced by the perks of the fast life. The film sends a basic message: Make work your priority, and you'll be rich and powerful... and lonely. Any other actress would have turned Miranda into a scenery-chewing Cruella, but Streep's underplayed, brilliant comic timing make her a fascinating, unapologetic character. Adding frills to the movie's fun are Stanley Tucci as Streep's second-in-command, Emily Blunt (My Summer of Love) as the overworked first assistant, Simon Baker as a sexy writer, and breathtaking couture designs any reader of Vogue would salivate over. -- Ellen A. Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars It just baffles me.... 3 July 2007
Format:DVD
Why some people dont like this film!

Ok, it's very predictable, but it's fun and enjoyable. Dont go into this film expecting something serious. I mean, underneath it all it has a serious message, that work and career isn't everything, friends and family are much more important. But, the film is just fun. Miranda Priestly (Streep) is fantastic as the boss that everyone fears! The best bits for me are when she is on screen. She steals the film everytime. Andy Sachs (Hathaway) is ok, but i find Hathaway's voice quite irritating. But still, not a bad character. And Emily Blunt is also fabulous as Miranda's first assistant. Her bitchiness inspires me!

My favourite part of the film is when Miranda demands that Andy gets her twin daughters the new Harry Potter book, not just any book, but the un-published manuscript! How will Andy manage that! Anyway, i will leave it at that and just say hope you enjoy like i did!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected! 14 Dec 2006
Format:DVD
This movie is a great adaptation of a novel by Lauren Weisberger, in my opinion much better than the book and that is truly rare.

Ok, the book was kinda.. crap. But the movie took what was good in it and gave it to Maryl Streep.

Without Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada would get maybe 2 star rating, (probably 1..) but because of Ms. Streep giving such a great performance it is reason alone to see it.

I especially liked the way that, as Miranda, she never raised her voice above normal speaking level. Streep has said she based this mannerism on Clint Eastwood, who as Dirty Harry talks very quietly but still intimidates. (so, do you feel lucky? punk!)

This made Miranda much more interesting than the stereotypical, screaming gorgon she could have become. And she is so deliciously devilish that you want her in every scene, but we'll settle for a supporting actress nomination come February in a movie that would have essentially been Pricess Diaries 3 without her.

The film is just too long, however, primarily because the director feels obliged to explain everything -- every plot point is rendered obviously and painfully clear, and nothing left open for interpretation. That said, we're spared the "perfect ending" and left with a heroine who can truly stand on her own two feet, and in any shoes she might desire.

4.0 out of 5 stars I was a little cautious at first... 16 Dec 2006
Format:DVD
After reading the book, I thought can I be bothered to go and pay to watch this? But I'm glad I did! Its the type of movie you can watch with anyone, the plots are simple the editing straight forward. It doesn't challenge you, and is probably suitable for most ages, and that rare gem where you find the film is actually better than the book...

What I liked most was the character of Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), who plays the boss to end all bosses and was really encouraged by her on screen dipiction of, what I believe is based on Anna Wintour.

Would recommend it for large groups of friends or just a pizza kinda movie, its rare to find such a movie that you could just leave on in the background and still enjoy!

3.0 out of 5 stars Chick flick for all 6 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
Don't watch this if you want deep philosophy or clever long shot lingering cinematography. But for a relaxing couple of hours it is great. It won't stretch you - but at the end of a working week who wants to be stretched! Meryl Streep is so delightfully demanding and acidic, reminds me of some female bosses.

One for the blokes too.

Format:DVD
I loved the book therefore i was concerned when i heard that young disney channel one Anne Hathaway was taking on the role of Andrea Sachs and whilst still not bowled over by her performance in the film the hapless, weaker character that her presence created actually enhanced the humour of the piece. Meryl Streep takes a refreshing break from the relm of serious tearjerkers to prove herself a very able comedy actress delivering the lines with such a subtle disdain that slowly builds to create a more realistic hellish boss than the trailer would indicate. Her long monolgues and short snipes stunningly well written and clearly do not differ that much from Lauren Weisenberger's book Emily Blunt is a find that shines in this film as first assistant to Miranda. Not only does she look jaw droppingly fashionable but Emily's portrayal of a worshipping assistant yet also bitchy coworker turned good is one of the funniest aspects to the film. Stanley Tucci is also very good in the small role he fills. The clothes are stunning and the long camera sequences dedicated to wardrobe were for me particularly enjoyable- perhaps for men watching this film (though i suspect not many will) not as interesting. along with the madonna music there is really not a lot this film is missing except for a bit more humour in the end minutes and a better casting of the lead role.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take my advice and Buy it. 11 Feb 2008
Format:DVD
Ok I will hold my hands up - I was really reluctant to buy this dvd as I really believed I would hate it.

Yes I know it had great reviews but being a Guy I am not really into ' fashion '

Once I bite the bullet and bought it I soon realised what I was missing.

The four main actors are Fantastic and special praise has to go to
Meryl Streep and even more praise has to go to Anne Hathaway.

If you were like me and thought its not for you take my advice and Buy it.
