Anne Hathaway is back and she's dressing to impress. Find out if this couture comedy is au currant or totally last season.

The Devil Wears Prada - Haute, Haute Heat

Based on the book of the same name, The Devil Wears Prada is the story of Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway), a smart-go-getting college grad looking to make in-roads in the world of journalism. She manages to get her foot in the door as a personal assistant to Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), the editor-in-chief of Runway Magazine, the most important magazine in the fashion world. Quickly, Andy learns that she's been hired to do more than fetch lattes and drop off dry cleaning - she has to practically give up her personal life to be at the beck-and-call of the unreasonable Miranda.

The Devil Wears Prada - Cinderella Wears Chanel

Not one to be easily beaten, Andy decides to fight fire with fire. She drops her frumpy frocks for designer duds and throws herself into her demanding job - much to the chagrin of her long-suffering boyfriend Nate (Adrian Grenier). As Andy delves farther into the world of fashion, she learns that the high-flying lifestyle comes at a cost: loneliness. Will she cast off her stilettos and run back to Nate's waiting arms or tighten her corset and march headlong into fashion week? You'll have to see the movie to find out!

The Devil Wears Prada - DVD Features

If you're about fashion 24/7, The Devil Wears Prada DVD should definitely be on your Christmas list! Take a look at the fashion industry in NYC, listen to commentary from the costume designer for the movie and learn about the biggest designers in the world. This DVD also includes tons of deleted scenes and a hilarious gag reel.

The Devil Wears Prada - Bottom Line

While Anne Hathaway is entertaining to watch, it's Meryl Streep that saves this film from turning into The Princess Diaries III. While Meryl is normally known as the Queen of Drama, she is laugh-out-loud hilarious in this film. The story is a bit two-dimensional (the fashion-industry as a pit of soulless despair concept is hardly original) and Anne Hathaway plays the same character she always does, but - at the end of the day - this is a feel-good chick flick packed with great clothes and cute shoes. And who could argue with that?

How Important Is Fashion to You?

  • Fashion is my life!
  • It's pretty important - but my friends and family come first.
  • It's fun, but not very important to me.
  • It isn't important at all.

Trust me- it's one of the best shows you'll ever watch! Whenever I hear the theme song, I can't help but drop whatever I'm doing and run into my living room!

Three Brothers were stranded on an island. They found a lamp.  1st brother: Hey! Maybe this is a magic lamp like the movies. They rubbed it. Nothing happened. They tried again. Nothing. They tried and tried again, until almost all hope was pulled from their very hearts. 2nd brother: Maybe we will be stuck here forever 3rd brother: Yeah 1st brother: Nonsense! There has to be another way Fortunately the lamp was just delayed. Very very delayed. Something appeared. It had legs, It couldn't be a genie Unknown creature: Hello. It is the genie. 1st brother:You don't look lik- Genie: Enough! Each of you have one wish. 1st brother: I wish to go home. His wish was granted. Home he went. 2nd brother: I wish to go home with my brother. 2 down, 1 to go. 3rd brother: I wish my brothers were here so I'm not lonely.
