The Devil Wears Prada is being positioned as a movie for grown-ups and others who know what, or who, or when, or where, Prada is.

Crafted like a high end TV show, it's a sort of video Vogue -- lite, brite and trite.

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.

Underneath the canned dialogue and a predictable career-isn't-everything social message, "The Devil Wears Prada" beats with an earnest heart.

The only thing super about this commonplace, boss-from-hell comedy is its couture and fluffiness, but at least it flies at a quicker clip than the Kryptonian überman's insipid return this week. Are capes in this season?

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

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

Soggy without a story. A job with a world-famous, powerful monster comes with enviable perks. See it only for sexy Simon Baker.

The filmmakers have defanged the entire idea, choosing to turn Andrea's trip to hell and back into a series of pre-digested I heart New York sequences aimed at the average Perez Hilton reader.

The comic appeal of The Devil Wears Prada is the cinematic equivalent of a size 2 -- wafer-thin and ultimately lacking in meat and substance.

Nasty and funny for about 30 minutes.

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.

Just another formula mediocre dramedy...
Christopher Null
June 29, 2006
mediocre at best, namely because it just doesn't live up to the promise of its title. Priestly may be evil, but she's not the devil

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

Andy's corruption is so gradual she doesn't realize it is happening. While this is probably truer to life, it doesn't make for interesting drama.

The movie's veiled endorsement of superficiality should give you reason to shout at the devil.

...a story that makes studio executives proud, in which the end lesson is that Stockholm Syndrome is a healthy outlook on life for a career gal.

If ... the heroine is going to be as immune to temptation as Andy is ... then the spiritual dimension better be staggering ... because the narrative will have no suspense.

(The cast) take their characters as far as possible in the film's opening act but are required to hit the same notes over and over in the limited, repetitive screenplay.
