The Devil Wears Prada

Loooved the movie. Huge improvement over the badly written book. (Really? NO editors were available before they rushed the roman a clef to press?)

I think The Devil Wears Prada is this generation's Pretty Woman. And if my LA audience is any indication, the men loved it, too. I saw it just a few days ago at The Grove, and people were STILL clapping and cheering at the end of the movie. Amazing to get that response after an opening weekend. Even more amazing...that's not happening anymore at Superman Returns or Pirates of the Carribean. Go strong women!!!

My only complaint was that the fashion was layered into the story, rather than giving us any gratifying moments during. Not like I wanted a cheesy 80s montage, but the one scene that showed our heroine's new fashion style was cut so MTV-fast I couldn't appreciate the couture.

All in all, still not as good as Rene Russo in The Thomas Crown Affair. Michael Kors still kicking Patricia Field's butt on the big screen.

And by the way kids, 14 is the new 2. Eff Hollywood.

If you skinny-lovers need proof, look at Meryl. SHE was the star, and she looked mahvelous:
