The Devil Wears Prada

Is there one role Meryl Streep can't do? Probably not considering she has like a million nominations and awards for her acting.

One's thing for certain: Streep can play a bitch pretty damn well, and she showcases that trait in The Devil Wears Prada. Her voice's tone never changes, she always gives an ice cold judging stare, and you can never tell if she's content. Almost makes Bette Davis look like a saint.

I also liked Stanley Tucci, who is practically Streep in male form. He spews out catty remarks like Streep, but he doesn't always mean what he says. He shows some concern, not much but enough to stop you from writing him off as a heel. Tucci is definitely a scene stealer here.

I did like The Devil Wears Prada. I thought it was cute, but that's all I really have to say about it. It feels like the typical chick flick to me, but I might see it again if I need to cheer up.

My Rating: ****


  1. I don't think it's a typical chick flick, and that's all because of Meryl Streep. Miranda Prienstly is a genius character; actually quite different from the book if you've read it. I think the film, and Streep, humanize her from being just the "Devil", and that makes her even more memorable. That and her lines of course- "By all means move at a glacial pace, you know how it thrills me." SNAP!

    This is easily one of my favourite chick flicks...I think it's funny and snappy and pretty. Loved Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci in this, and Anne Hathaway was sweet. She did have great chemistry with Streep, and that's always a good thing.

  2. it definitely had its chick flicks moments, but this movie is well acted. even hathaway is good in it! and meryl is IT in it.

  3. It's... it's a better kind of chick-flick. I saw it on a DVD night with my girlfriends, and we added it as the "intelligent one", so it's definitely different from most other chick-flicks.
    Meryl Streeps character is one of my favorite film characters, she is so interesting, don't you think?
