Becky and I went to see The Devil Wears Prada on Saturday night at the AMC Theaters in Highlands Ranch. The Fandango website at The Devil Wears Prada describes the movie as follows:
“Andy is a recent college graduate with big dreams. Upon landing a job at prestigious Runway magazine, she finds herself the assistant to diabolical Miranda Priestly. Andy questions her ability to survive her grim tour as Miranda’s whipping girl without getting scorched. Based on the novel by Lauren Weisberger.”
The Devil Wears Prada had a pretty catchy title, but we didn’t know what to expect. I saw a number of women reading the book in the airport when I was coming back from a recent trip to Arizona, so I was half expecting it to be a very lame chick flick. It wasn’t at all what I was thinking.
This was definitely one of the better comedies of the year. Meryl Streep was awesome as Miranda, who is the Editor in Cheif of a top fashion magazine. Anne Hathaway was great as Andy, who is forced to do some soul searching after working for Miranda who is a power driven, self serving, work-a-holic that everyone in the fashion industry respects and fears – much like the Devil himself.
It has a number of good messages about life, relationships, work and having balance. There are some strange situations that evolve from putting people in last place and it will definitely make you think. You’ll also see some personalities that you’ve probably met in real life before.
I don’t want to give away the film. We both thought it was definitely Worth The Trip and is one of the better films in theaters right now.
