Quick Tip by . June 12, 2011
More cultural puke manifest as one hundred and nine noxious minutes of asinine posturing and nary a whit of substantive character development. It's also a terrible waste of one of the finest living Anglophone character actresses.

More Than Just About Clothes
The Devil Wears Prada. I had no interest in watching this movie when it was new. People who follow my articles here at Lunch probably know I'm a big fan of Anne Hathaway, despite that this is a movie I had no interest in watching. That is until recently. On a whim, looking for something to spend a few hours of the evening watching, and obviously being a fan of Hathaway, I decided to watch it.      I'm very glad I did. I've rarely been happier that a movie was NOT what I …

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA is a sinfully delicious comedy set in the cut-throat New York fashion industry. When journalist Andie Sachs (Anne Hathaway) is hired as the new assistant to Runway Magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), the stage is set for a a legendary culture (or should that be couture?) clash! Miranda Priestly--inspired by Anna Wintour, renowned editor of Vogue--is one of the most fascinating characters that Ms Streep has ever played on the screen and she really tries to give …

This movie is miles better than the silly Ugly Betty program that is a big hit on tv which has a lot of similarities. Ana, who dreams of being a journalist takes a job out of desperation with Runway Magazine. Runway is the leading fashion magazine that is the leader in deciding which designers will have successful lines. The magazine is run by Miranda (Meryl Streep in a vastly different role than the friendly psychologist in the recent Prime) who controls everything about the magazine and whose …

Pros: Ms. Streep's performance, Anne, lips.     Cons: everything else.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals no details about the movie''s plot. Okay, a couple of stipulations are in order before I roll on with this review. First, Anne Hathaway (Ella Enchanted, Havoc, Brokeback Mountain) has the most luscious set of lips I have ever seen on a Caucasian woman—yes even more sensual than Angela Jolie. And second I love, love, love Meryl Streep (The Bridges …

Haven't read the book so I have nothing to compare this movie to. But I don't think I would regret not having read the book first. Well the movie is good enough that I don't think I shall be reading the book anymore, I will rather watch the movie again. Having been in the fashion industry I can relate to this very well. "The Devil Wears Prada" is director David Frankel's first theatrical feature film, however, it's by no means his first important job, as Frankel perfected his craft directing several …

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA features the fabulous Meryl Streep in her most cattily-comedic performance since "Death Becomes Her". She plays Miranda Priestly, the revered and feared editor-in-chief of Runway, the most popular fashion magazine on the planet.    When an idealistic writer named Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway, "The Princess Diaries", "Becoming Jane") becomes employed as Miranda's new assistant, she soon finds herself playing gumshoe to Miranda's impossible requests, and fending …

Meryl Streep is Miranda Priestly, the editor in chief of Runway, obviously Vogue. She is imperious, demanding, arrogant and, as it turns out, extremely skilled in corporate ju-jitsu. Andi Sacks (Ann Hathaway) is a young thing in New York, trying for the first rung on the writing ladder. Andi, plain, Midwestern is immediately out of place among the fasion obsessed. Aha, but the Devil does wear Prada and soon Andi is on the road to being obsessed with glitter, glamor and fashion.     …

Some people live to work. As the late Frank Sinatra sang, "If you can make it there [New York], then you can make it anywhere." It is on this premise that nice woman, Andrea "Andie" Sacks (Anne Hathaway) comes to the Big Apple from the greater Chicago Area in order to make it as a columnist at a major periodical. After an awkward interview, she lands a big job at fashion magazine 'Runway,'. She has to settle as a receptionist, but really is more of a personal assistant to the leading lady, Miranda …

Pros: Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, Ann Hathaway and the rest of the cast     Cons: just wasn't fulfilling; too materialistic     The Bottom Line: It's okay if you aren't involved in publishing. Just be wary that it is materialistic and you might not be happy with the ending.     I have never read The Devil Wears Prada. As a matter of fact, I didn't even know that this film was based on a novel until a friend informed me as I was driving …
