The Devil Wears Prada

Review from The Bleacher Bum.

The Devil Wears Prada

This movie was written and directed with a specific audience in mind, and I can promise, I do not fit into that demographic. The movie stars Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, and Adrian Grenier (sans E, Drama, Turtle, and Ari) The movie is from the best-selling book of the same name by Lauren Weisberger. This story would be better served as a play instead of a movie. Andrea (Hathaway, Interstellar) takes a job at a fashion magazine in New York, and her boss is the demanding and ruthless Miranda (Streep, Into the Woods). The story lacked depth and true conflict, but it was comical and moved along. Streep was great and owns the role and the movie. She steals every scene, and when she is not around, you are just waiting for her to appear again. Tucci is sharp and funny as the movie’s conscience. The movie was made for girls’ night out and should only be watched as such.
