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 - 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?
