I think everyone can enjoy this movie, despite its decidedly female slant. I’m sure that women are the intended audience, but there were plenty of men in the theater, and their laughs rang out the loudest.
The incomparable Meryl Streep (The Manchurian Candidate) stars as type-A super-bitch Miranda Priestly, editor-in-chief of a popular fashion magazine. She changes personal assistants like she changes clothes, because no one has the heart to tolerate such a demanding job. Enter Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries) as Andy, a wide-eyed journalist hoping to get her feet wet at the magazine. The only problem is that Andy has no clue about fashion. Her status as fashion victim is a major hindrance in her professional development and a source of resentment from the other chicks at the office. After a makeover, Andy goes from dud to diva and her confidence soars. Now she embraces the fashion world that she used to frown upon as meaningless and superficial. Unfortunately, Andy begins to change internally as well, nearly losing her friends and boyfriend (Adrian Grenier of Entourage) in the process. The Devil Wears Prada is a charming little movie that everyone can enjoy. Now ladies, all you have to do is drag your man to the theater. Just tell him he’ll get to look at Giselle Bundchen (Victoria’s Secret supermodel). If the men in my theater were any indication, he’ll enjoy this movie — even if he won’t admit it!
