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.

Nimbly assembled and tartly performed

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

Just another formula mediocre dramedy...
May 27, 2008
There are some must-have luxuries here, first of which is Meryl Streep's fascinating performance as the fearsome Miranda Priestly.

An agreeably shallow comedy.

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.

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.
July 6, 2007
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.

...there's simply no denying the effectiveness of virtually every aspect of the production...

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.

Lessons of Darkness
January 11, 2007
Makes one pine for any comparable '50s working-girl comedy (or, for that matter, 1988's Working Girl).

With its strong ensemble cast, witty script and eye-candy apparel, The Devil Wears Prada is the hottest trend of the season.

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.
