The Devil Wears Prada (2006)



Average Rating: 6.7/10

A rare film that surpasses the quality of its source novel, this Devil is a witty expose of New York's fashion scene, with Meryl Streep in top form and Anne Hathaway more than holding her own.

An agreeably shallow comedy.

Anne Hathaway is Patricia Field's latest fashion victim in this limp semi-satire.

The whole thing is humbug, a giant ad for the industry it affects to critique.

The Devil Wears Prada is two films in one: a caustic, energetic satire of the fashion world and a cautionary melodrama.

The biggest problem with the movie, however, is that it tries to make a big deal out of a subject that has been beaten to death in the tabloids and the media.

The Devil Wears Prada is primarily an occasion to celebrate Meryl Streep as a grand comedienne.

If Hathaway's Andy drives the pedestrian narrative -- idealistic girl learns the value of staying true to herself and her "real" friends; snore -- then Streep is the movie's soul.

An ironic measure of the film's research into the fashion-mag scene is the fact that there's almost no journalism in it.

There are some must-have luxuries here, first of which is Meryl Streep's fascinating performance as the fearsome Miranda Priestly.

The Devil Wears Prada isn't a brilliant film, but it certainly is an entertaining one.

An ideal movie for DVD: you can pick and choose moments and lines to revisit while ignoring, or trying to ignore, the thematic compromises, hectoring impulses, and structural handicaps that start to engulf the film.

Streep is a far better reason to see The Devil Wears Prada than the movie itself.

July 30, 2007 Full Review Source:

It's to the film's credit that I still found it an enjoyable satire, as glossy and superficial as the industry it purports to skewer.

The story itself falls too frequently into the standard cliches of the awkward-girl-turns-into-a-swan-thanks-to-an-unexpected-fairy-godmother formula.

Funciona por el talento de sus actrices, por lo inteligente de su guión y por no pretender ser nada fuera de lo común. Fue una de las sorpresas del año pasado y con justa razón.

There are some witty lines and pretty outfits, but when it comes to diabolical satire, The Devil Wears Prada merely strikes a pose.

An insipid script by Laws of Attraction co-writer Aline Brosh McKenna packs a few droll one-liners, but mostly the film only aspires to its chick-lit roots.

This deliberately ambiguous comedy, set in the Manhattan offices of Runway magazine (a lightly disguised Vogue), has its Chanel and wears it.

If you have ever held an office job, you probably have encountered the "boss from hell" and Streep manages to make the character both amusing, scary and touching (sometimes simultaneously). She alone makes the film worth seeing.

Makes one pine for any comparable '50s working-girl comedy (or, for that matter, 1988's Working Girl).

Moralista, sí. Predecible, un poco. Pero divertida, ingeniosa, ácida y exquisitamente disfrutable... especialmente por el extraordinario trabajo de una verdadera deidad de la actuación: la Sra. Merryl Streep.

If some sixtysomething nerd who read books about galactic empires and hasn't even touched a fashion magazine can love this movie, anyone can.

A film for those over the age of 14 is hard to come by this time of year. Don't let "The Devil Wears Prada" sneak by without giving it a look.

Meryl Streep was excellent in this one.

Movie about an ordinary girl who gets a job in a fashion magazine powerhouse. She is engulfed by the industry. I love the fashion. Meryl is brilliant.

I must rewrite my review to this movie, because this movie is rare and by what i mean by it being rare is that i didnt like it when i first saw it at the cinema but since watching it again, countless times over again i enjoy each time more and more!
I now love this movie and call it one of my favourite movies its funny, entertaining and just great to watch, it has a great cast and just thoroughly enjoyable, i have to say i absolutely love Meryl Streep in this movie, she is fantastic and that strong character scariness she had going on was really attractive!
Fantastic movie and being a person who hates fashion and everything about as its just not interesting you can still very much enjoy this movie!

A interesting concept and decent actings, just like a nice direction. The Devil Wears Prada it's a so-so picture. Not some great as everybody say,(have some boring scenes and go in a way of a dramatic romantic comedy with a feminist view; a very cliche thing in movies), sadly the script wasn't very good written and had avoid this mistakes. Still the movie brings a terrific performance by Meryl Streep.
