Comedy based on the novel by Lauren Weisberger. Andrea (Anne Hathaway) is a bright young woman from the Midwest who has just graduated from college and wants to work as a magazine writer. She has applied for a job at 'Runway', America's most prestigious fashion journal. Andy has little interest in the garment trade, but it is one of the only magazines in New York with a job opening - second assistant to editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep). As Andy discovers, Miranda is a diva with plenty of power in the magazine business, and she isn't afraid to use that power. Though Andy lands the job, she soon learns that working for Miranda could test the patience of a saint, thanks to her endless demands and refusal to acknowledge the end of a work day. Andy struggles to hold on to the job and her sanity, knowing that a recommendation from Miranda can open nearly any door at any magazine - but can she handle the pressure without losing her mind along the way?
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 Streep has a ball sending her new slave on any whimsical errand, whether it's finding the seventh (unpublished) Harry Potter book or knowing what type she means when she wants "skirts."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.

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!
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.
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!
Of course there is the story, the acting ,etc surely a criticism of the world of fashion but what a lot of reviewers seem to have missed is that it's so true: graduates, highly-qualified people who are offered jobs as assistants and are treated like trash and used to run errands that have nothing to do with the job itself. I know because my daughter works for an American multinational in Paris and she is asked to do things like buying stamps, making reservations, doing all sorts of things for the people above they could and should take care of themselves.(My daughter has decided to quit like Adriana at the end) So there are no exaggerations, and this film truly shows the way things are run in many American firms.When you think of it you realise it's not so funny.
