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

Streep's expert comic timing is also on display in The Devil Wears Prada an otherwise bland small-town-girl-in-the-big-city story that's enlivened by her performance as a domineering magazine editor.

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.

A slick but flimsy knock-off, almost as superficial as the industry it pretends to dress down.

(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.

The storyline sets itself up for plenty of phony pay-offs, but thankfully doesn't deliver on them. It actually knows better.

The Devil Wears Prada tells a familiar story, and it never goes much below the surface of what it has to tell. Still, what a surface!

That Andy, so beautiful in her new wardrobe, comes to see this power as superficial and sad rather than desirable is plot-pointy and predictable.

A fun movie that should be much better.

Despite themes as outdated as last season's wardrobe, the comedy delivers lightweight entertainment.

Impressively free of black-and-white characterizations.

White-maned Meryl Streep is a lioness in winter, with a weary whisper for a roar.

Nasty and funny for about 30 minutes.

The intersection of career and personal life is explored in The Devil Wears Prada, a slick yet refreshingly mature take on the boss-from-hell premise.

A clever, funny look at the way we sometimes risk selling our souls in the name of success.

Streep has latched onto this role of an impossibly demanding fashion editor, who chews up and spits out underlings, with all of the bravado of Bette Davis in her prime.
