Fashion editor Miranda Priestly is absolutely ruthless as she strikes fear into the hearts of everyone who works for her at Runway magazine. Andy recently graduated college and has now found herself to be the assistant to Ms. Priestly. She must now try to find a way to survive her horrible boss while living out her dream. Meryl Streep brought the horridness of Miranda into the light while Anne Hathaway did a great job of portraying Andy in a very innocent yet determined way. I would rate this comedic drama 3.5/5 stars and recommend it to those seeking a good laugh. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

As someone who adores fashion, it’s no surprise that I loved The Devil Wears Prada. It follows the story of Andrea, an aspiring journalist in New York, who lands a job as the assistant of Miranda Priestly, a vicious editor of a top fashion magazine called “Runway.” Although Andrea did not want the job in the first place, it becomes a valuable learning experience for her. This movie displays the competitive nature of the fashion industry, some amazing outfits, and spectacular actresses like Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep, what more could you ask for?

Great movie about the fashion world/industry - thought everyone was wonderful - especially Stanley Tucci - watch it with The September Issue especially if you're into fashion - the people portrayed in the movie exist in real life

“The Devil Wears Prada” stars Andrea, a mousy young woman who has recently graduated from university. Andrea wants to become a journalist, but instead ends up working at ‘Runway’, New York’s finest fashion magazine. Andrea is the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the horribly rude editor-in-chief of Runway. As Andrea’s personal life begins to come apart because of her work, she finds herself learning not only more about herself, but also about those she works with, Miranda included.

“The Devil Wears Prada” is based off of Lauren Weisberger’s novel of the same name. It’s a delightful, entertaining movie that is sure to have viewers hanging onto its every word. The characters are lovable, quirky, and stunning, and each one is lovable in their own way. The actors and actresses bring the script to life in such a breathtaking way that audiences will be awed, and the script itself is incredible and well-written. The plot is marvelous and clever, and contains a perfect mixture of humour and drama. The movie takes place in bustling New York City, and it only helps to make the story believable and unique. The costume, makeup, and set designs in this film are gorgeous, and truly help to bring “The Devil Wears Prada” to life.

Overall, the author of this review highly recommends this film. It’s clever and loveable, and is sure to grasp nearly every viewer’s heart while making them laugh out loud. The author of this review believes “The Devil Wears Prada” to be suitable for ages twelve and up.

Uch--I had such issues with this movie. Loved the performances, including the wonderful Stanley Tucci as the wise and witty Nigel, the appealing Anne Hathaway as the beleaguered newcomer Andy, Emily Blunt as the hapless, hard-bitten assistant and gatekeeper, "Emily," and, especially, the towering Meryl Streep as the feared fashion Editor-Goddess Miranda Priestley.

But what exactly were we supposed to take away from this film and the conflicts between Andy and Miranda? That naive and decent Andy was the "better" of the two? At the film's end I silently wished Andy well as I watched her come to a decision about her future. But I couldn't help feeling that Miranda and the tough lessons she had been forced to learn about career, love, motherhood and marriage were being given short shrift; our sympathies were supposed to be for the youthful Andy.

Which is annoying. Because Streep could have played Miranda as a cold, unfeeling bitch and left it at that but of course she doesn't. She lets us see, through Andy's wide eyes, the dignity, pain and vulnerability of the aging, lonely woman under the sophistication, hard glamour and high accomplishment. She teaches Andy important things, even when she doesn't mean to, whether Andy wants the lessons or not. Miranda's life is both an inspiration and a cautionary tale.

I didn't like the total lack of support Andy gets from her best friend Lily (Tracie Thoms) who after all was also striving to make something of herself in that biggest and most competitive of American cities. And her boyfriend Nate (Adrian Grenier) was a whining, self-absorbed jerk who seemed to have no patience or understanding for the growing pains Andy endures as she attempts to navigate the demands of a glamorous but impossible job. If anything he seemed jealous of her dedication and determination to rise to the occasion. (Sweetie, you can do better than this, I kept thinking.)

"The Devil Wears Prada." I loved it. I hated it. I'd watch it again someday.

I recommend it.

Meryl Streep is perfect. That's all.

Great, hilarious and a phenomenally well done movie. It's a great way to look at how some pre-madonnas really act. I loved it, but I thought the ending could use some work. I think Meryl Streep (who I personally love) is great in the movie and it's funny to see her as a pre-madonna. Anne Hathaway was very good as well. I highly recommend it.

Andy Sachs: So none of the girls here eat anything?
Nigel: Not since two became new four and zero became the new two.
Andy Sachs: Well, I'm a six...
Nigel: Which is the new fourteen.
