The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Fashion Play

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Based on Lauren Weisberger's book and directed by David Frankel ("Sex and the City"), The Devil Wears Prada is nasty and funny for about 30 minutes. It could have been nastier and funnier; instead it turns into one of those diatribes about working less and enjoying life more (see also R.V. and Click). Meryl Streep is superb as the relentless editor of Runway magazine, chromed and with an icy, hard gaze. She correctly underplays the character, knowing that quiet can be just as effective as bombast. Anne Hathaway plays the smart, young assistant who sells her soul and learns humanity, but her Audrey Hepburn-ish charm gets lost within the polarized material. However, Stanley Tucci and English newcomer Emily Blunt turn in surprisingly soulful support.
