The Devil Wears Prada Reviews

If looks can truly kill, Meryl Streep's Miranda may very well be the fashion industry's most notorious serial killer.

This one goes out to anyone suffering the whims of a tyrannical employer. For you, this will be so much more than a fun, fashion-conscious comedy. It will be therapy.

The film ultimately fails because it lacks the sharpness needed to make a successful satire. Who would have thought that a comedy about models could suffer from being too nice?

It's Meryl's movie, everyone says, and in a way it is. She gives a furiously funny performance as a furiously nasty bit of work... But, as I said earlier, scenes without her suffer horribly.

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

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.

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.
