Plot: In the dizzying world of New York fashion, where size zero is the new 2, six is the new 8, and a bad hair day can end a career, Runway Magazine is the Holy Grail. Overseen with a finely manicured fist by Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) – the most powerful woman in fashion – Runway is a fearsome gauntlet for anyone who wants to make it in the industry. To make Runway the fashion bible of New York and therefore the world, Miranda has let nothing stand in her way … including a long line of assistants that didn’t make the cut. It’s a job no self-respecting person can survive, yet it’s an opportunity a million young women in New York would kill for.

A stint as Miranda’s assistant could blast-open the doors for recent college graduate Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway). More college drab than haute couture, she stands alone among the small army of “Clackers” on staff at Runway – superslim fashion divas clacking their stilettos down the halls of the magazine’s Manhattan headquarters. But when Andy comes in for the job, it dawns on her that making it in this industry will take more than drive and determination.

And her ultimate test stands before her in head-to-toe Prada.

Miranda can spin the fashion world like a basketball but has a devil of a time finding and keeping a good assistant. Andy

external linkOn balance, I enjoyed the film, despite the whiny final half hour and the artificial conclusion. (Whatever happened to hard-edged endings in satires?) I recognize that the film is being marketed toward women, but I see no reason why men can't enjoy what The Devil Wears Prada offers.... 3/4

external linkThanks to a sharp script and four perfectly cast actors, "The Devil Wears Prada" is fun and entertaining even if you're not a fan or slave to fashion. Women should appreciate the characters and all the fashion stuff, bt it's not the type of movie that will leave guys in pain if they're dragged to see it by their wives or girlfriends. 8/10
--Edward Douglas (

external linkWith all of the high fashion design and the lofty atmosphere of that world, “The Devil Wears Prada” is aimed at the youthful fashion-conscious femme audience and it hits its target squarely. But, it is clever enough, with some very biting dialog (mostly thanks to Meryl’s delivery), to be suitable date material for the more open-minded guys. Quality shows, even in a chick flick. B,B
--Robin and Laura Clifford

external linkUltimately, the film is 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. She's just a tough boss that gets her way. As for the Prada, I can't say. She could be wearing the Jaclyn Smith collection and I'd never know the difference. 3/5

external linkMeryl Streep gives a wonderful performance as Miranda, who is a boss of all bosses, and clearly knows her power. Tucci is equally entertaining. But the best of all is Blunt, who plays the bitchy, ambition-obsessed Emily with a deft touch. I’ll give her the Best Supporting Actress Oscar right now....This is brilliant and funny. Don’t miss it. 10/10
--Tony Medley (

external linkClothes to die for and an outrageous fashion diva compete for attention in this dishy comedy.
--Kirk Honeycutt (Hollywod Reporter)

external a chick-flick, but there are things about it that a heterosexual man can enjoy. The way Anne Hathaway looks, Emily Blunt's comedy, but mostly Meryl Streep's performance as Miranda, which is as terrific as you'd expect from the veteran actress. 2.5/4
