The Devil Wears Prada (2006)



Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for The Devil Wears Prada

All Critics (196) | Top Critics (50)

An agreeably shallow comedy.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

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

Top Critic

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.

Empire Magazine Australasia

Nimbly assembled and tartly performed

Full Review… | August 30, 2009

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

Full Review… | August 21, 2009

Just another formula mediocre dramedy...

Audience Reviews for The Devil Wears Prada


Despite its stupid, clichéd and moralistic message of "the price you pay when you choose profession over personal life", this is an entertaining comedy that takes a caustic look at New York's fashion scene and has a memorable performance by Meryl Streep.

Carlos Magalhães

Super Reviewer

"The Devil Wears Prada" is a thoroughly enjoyable film with many quotable lines for the inner b!tch. Although it may not be particularly impressive from the perspective of script, character development or insight, for my money, the film features Meryl Streep's most enjoyable role as a shallow, Machiavellian ice queen. Brava, Meryl! Brava!
