New Movie Reviews

"The Devil Wears Prada"

by Jason Rzucidlo
AmericaJR@AmericaJR.com

Comedy, Drama. PG-13.

Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway star in this new comedy film, based in New York called "The Devil Wears Prada." The movie is about a fashion magazine and everything that goes on behind the scenes. Also starring in this film is Stanley Tucci, Emily Blunt and Adrian Grenier.

Anne Hathaway plays the character of Andy, a potential job candidate for the New York City fashion magazine Runway. Andy has attended Northwestern University and is a very smart girl. She comes in to be interviewed by the editor-in-chief herself, Miranda (played by Meryl Streep).

Miranda looks at Andy and wonders if she is serious about fashion. Previous to the interview, Andy never knew anything about the magazine or Miranda herself. Miranda is a very expensive woman. She wants everything her way. She decided to give Andy a chance at being her second assistant.

Miranda has two assistants -- Emily and Andy. Emily has held the position for about a year now. She is a snotty, gothic-type of a girl. She is mean spirited and usually doesn't say nice things to Andy. Andy's main responsibility is to get coffee and answer the phones for Miranda.

Andy has a boyfriend. She has lots of friends that she normally hangs out with in the evening at bars or clubs. With this new job at the fashion magazine, she has been spending less time with her friends and boyfriend. Her social life is diminishing. She has to make a decision on whether to keep working for Runway or to quit and be with her friends more.

Each morning, when Miranda enters the building, she would drop her purse and coat right on top of Andy's desk. I think it was rude. Why not just hand it to her? Even when you try to make Miranda happy, she just keeps asking for more. She would always ask for coffee, steaks and other things.

Miranda is about to go to a fashion show in Paris. She decided to bring both assistants with her, Emily and Andy. She uses them to help her remember the names of the guests that are attending. While in Paris, Miranda hosted a special conference. She announced that the magazine Runway was going to merge with another company to become more global. Miranda chose her replacement, another lady who will become the new Editor-in-Chief.

Miranda was considered to be the "Queen of the Fashion Industry." Different fashion labels would show her their new clothing. She would either nod if it was good or give a smirk to show that it's horrible. She was the only one that mattered. Her decision meant the green light or the red light.

Anne starts to act a lot like Miranda. She gets the quality of being stuck up and rich. Then, Anne's boyfriend decides to split up with her. Anne looks to her inner self and asks the question "is this really who I want to be?" Upon some consideration, she says no and quits the job at the Runway magazine. A new assistant is hired days later and has to fill some BIG shoes.

I'm not going to tell you the ending. It is definitely not what I expected to happen. I highly recommend that you go see this movie. You will see lots of New York City's sights and sounds. Coming from someone that just visited New York, I absolutely LOVED this movie! Go see it...
