The Devil Wears Prada — For the fashion concious or the goal oriented — 7*/10

The Devil Wears Prada is about setting goals and achieving them.

The good. Nice clothes. Glamour. Well built and well paced script. Very interesting story. Entertaining laughs. Solid dialogs.

The actors. Meryl Streep is perfect as the driven cold calculating top editor. It suits her better than mousy anxious mother. Anne Hathaway gives us a very good performance as the wide eyed innocent, and her transformation is very believable. Emily Blunt has the same aplomb as the competitive shallow fashion obsessed assistant. Finally, Stanley Tucci is surprisingly well tailored for the career man with the cold look but soft heart.

The bad. Why would she wants grilled cheese in Boston, when he was so unsupportive and refused to understand her situation? That's ridiculous. He acted like a self-centered child.

The ugly. Nothing, really.

The result. Light and entertaining movie. Recommended to fashion lovers.
