Surprised that this was only rated as PG.
An entertaining and delightful movie.
Like the movie, very good to watch
Really great chickflick. Some amazing fashion (I love the thigh-high leather boots that Hathaway wears). All of the actors are superb and I really feel for the conflict between career and commiting to your partner.
This movie suited to neurotic women working in the fashion industry. Not for me, it was enough to make me switch dvd off in the first half hour
Great movie very entertaining chik flik!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: ]
Excellent movie, well worth a watch. Merl streep and Anne hathaway shine in this movie, showing an average girl come into her own.
Not bad, one for the ladies.
I read the book first, which always makes me like a movie less. The film wasn't as funny, and was less universal than the novel. I could relate to many of the situations the heroine in the novel found herself in because they were common to many different lines of work (a bad boss is a bad boss, whatever you do for a living), but the film was more specifically about the fashion industry. All in all, it wasn't a bad film. Decent performances, a few laughs, worth watching.
A fun flick where you're not required to use your brain too much. Good entertainment after a long day at work.
This movie is perfectly perfect.. Especially if you are hardcore into fashion, you will appreciate EVERYTHING this movie has to offer. The actors brilliant, clothes, shoes bags, perfect, perfect, perfect, what more could you ask for from a movie...Meryl Streep does the performance of her career..She plays evil and bitchy so brilliant. Anne Hathaway shines, as usual.. The only thing about it is the ending is too unrealistic, why the hell would you give up the glamorous, fabulous life to go be a boring bland newspaper reporter...Oh and her bf is so boring wanting to hold her back and basically have no style... One of the best films EVER!!!
I've always loved this film and the characters in it, but watching it again on TV last night confirmed the theme and setting of "Funny Face" with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire - I have a sneaking suspicion that this semi-autobiography by the author is in fact a direct copycat of the original movie. That's what I thought anyway.
I have never considered Meryl Streep a comedy actress but she is at times very funny in this. Another surprising movie that I enjoyed even though I did not expect it to be that good. Pity that most of us have had a boss ike that at some point.
Love this one, the fashion is great
Not great, but not bad either. A bit of fun, plenty of satire, and ending in a moral about life and love. Without the change in tone, it would have been very disappointing and shallow.
A Meryl Streep classic performance in a good "light" movie.
One of the best comedy dramas. The fashion industry is probably even crazier (and more insanely competetive) than even this film shows. Great acting from Streep. Hathaway does a good job if you can stand her appalling speaking voice. If I was the director I'd have her dubbed (or coached). Good supporting characters make this entertaining viewing.
Like the movie ... funny and entertaining..... didn't expect the ending..
Entertaining, loved Streep in this!
Meryl Streep at her brilliant best... again! Great movie - light hearted, gorgeous fashion, great characterisations.
Extremely enjoyable, Chalenges dreams, A FEEL GOOD movie. We loved it.
What a shallow, vein, fickle little world the fashion industry is. "Everybody wants to be us" pouted Miranda. NO not everyone does, surprisingly enough, which Andy was eventually to discover. How right she was. Nevertheless an entertaining film to watch and Meryl streep was at her superb best.
Excellent film about the fashion industry. Shows how superficial this industry is, though the people working in the industry take it all so seriously. Great acting, especially Merle Streep - I was amazed at how she let herself be shown literally warts and all during a tough time in her life.
I loved this movie with Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. I thought it was done down to perfection. Meryl was outstanding in her role and Anne Hathaway was as always perfect in her role. I totally believed the roles. In some movies I dont see the story they are trying to tell but this one I did. Anne Hathaway is becoming a great actress in her own right. Meryl, wonderful as always. Simon Baker was cute in his own right.
Surprisingly good movie. Amusing. In the inital stages I found the Anne Hathaway character rather annoying but warmed to her as the story progressed
Both my wife and I enjoyed this movie
Don't expect the movie to be like the book at all. Basically the only similarities between the book and the movie are the main characters and setting (magazine office). The plot and action are completely different.
So if you have read the book, don't expect the movie to stick to it at all. Enjoyable though, quite well cast (Glenn Close as the bitchy Editor is especially good).
-and a half. Very entertaining chick flick. Streep is, as usual, magnificent. Emily Blunt is great and Anne Hathaway holds her own against them and looks great too!!!
predictable, only worth watching to gaze on anne hathaway
Meryl Streep gives a wow performance laced with understated menace as the executive psycho at the centre of this tale. She makes an otherwise pedestrian translation of the novel into something worth watching.
Very enjoyable. Funny and oh the different personalities
Most people have worked with a pyschopath before, and this film does not provide any funnier insight to what happens in real life.
The actors are good but the script could have been snappier and shorter.
The film is a little too long.
Excellent movie for the whole family to watch, those over 10 years old will love the story. No swearing or nudity very rare these days. We watched it twice!
Beryl Streep, the devil, has everyone in turmoil. Everything revolves around her until a new assistant tries to put some heart into the melee. Wounderfull acting.
Aah the ever delightful Meryl Streep was entertaining in this funny at times, look at the crazy, hectic world of fashion, as the fire breathing dragon of runway magazine,evne my fella got a few laughs in!!
Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours.
Good light hearted viewing.
Good Movie, very entertaining. Good performance by Anne Hathaway, but Meryl Streep is the star by far.
Not a bad comedy with some neat moments of seriousness and Streep delivering a performance that raises the material above what it otherwise might have been. Tucci is great too. First two-thirds particularly good.
An enjoyable watch even if you're not into fashion, very good for a laugh.
Disturbing how close it is. Human nature in the zoo!
Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway great as usual. Good character development
Meryl Streep was amazing as always. Enjoyable with no real surprises. Fashion to die for............
For any girl that likes shoes, bags or fashion this movie is heaven!!
After hearing a lot of buzz about this movie I was disappointed. The fact that a smart girl got so easily swept up in the superficiality of the fashion world and allowed herself to be treated like a doormat was totally uninspiring.
Entertaining. The book was 1000 times better but aren't they always. Read the book first if you get a chance.
Indeed the Devil wears prada how easy it is to be caught up and loose your own identity
Brilliant Meryl Streep at her bitchy best
Despite being a bloke, I really enjoyed this film.
Amusing and light hearted...worth a look
I enjoyed it. A great fun movie. I laughed out loud with this one.
Brilliant cast, great acting. Takes me back to my own fashion assistant days! A good laugh with a token moral ending
Fantastic chick flick. Great for a night in front of the telly with the cat and a hot choc.
What starts as a parody of the bitchy and superficial world of fashion turns into a moral dilema drama with a slightly predictable ending. Fun to watch and great soundtrack.
Not my type of movie although I like Meryl.
Worth watching just for the fashion!
Fantastic, I have no seen it five times & would definitely watch again. All the characters do a great job. It's funny but that's actually a very clear look at the fashion world. Highly recommended
I thought the movie was good. I sat there and really got into it. I didn't think I would.
Yeah, a terrific film. Pushes all the right buttons, even if your idea of high fashion is Paris Hilton in a helicopter. Worth viewing.
saw it at the movies watched it again on dvd still just as great loved it :)
Not a man's movie at all, but I really enjoyed it. Who wouldn't with two of the best female actors ever.
I thought this movie was great. Funny, with a great sense of style!!
I enjoyed watching this film. It was funny.
I liked this, but no surprises here.
A brillant performance by Meryl Streep and Anne Hatherway.
Great movie..the fashion world believes itself to be world influencing,,and so it is..a must not miss movie for guys to understand what a handbag can cost and for gals to go shopping.
I just loved this movie- I'm a PA Myself, I fully understand how overwhelming A PA's role can be, but it's just fabulous darlings when you get things done before "the boss" asks! Managing up always and power to us girlfriends !
Excellent little movie. Nice plot twists that keeps you off guard. Acting is very good.
Excellent movie. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
A very good movie. Entertaining and very relaxing to watch.
Thought it was quite entertaining, but ended up feeling sorry for Meryl Streep in the end. Very much a chick flick
tremendous performances, rated high on the cringe factor for the shallow personalities depicted in an entertaining flick
Fabulous outfits, cute storyline, nice movie just for light entertainment.
Very clever & witty. Well scripted and acted, with a minimum of the mush that's usually contained in American box-office movies.
Loved it. Good, light entertainment. And I want all those clothes!
Not as good as I was expecting, obvious storyline but still was worth a watch once.
I adore Anne Hathaway and initially she was the only reason I wanted to see the movie. Having never read the book I didn't know what to expect but I was blown away, this is in my top 5 movies of all time now. The story is told so beautifuly and I pretty much smilied the whole way through. I loved all of the characters, especially Nigel, who was played with self restraint by Stanley Tucci, and Merly Streep was just brillant. Anne was on the money and I adore her more than ever after seeing the movie.
great movie, very enjoyable, Meryl streep was great, great story line.
Good story that draws you in with the characters. Good life lessons also.
Pretty nice movie, good for the whole family to watch.
For fashionistas only! Meryl Sreep was fab as always. Fairly predictable but well done.
Very enjoyable flick, mostly for fans of fashion & all things girly .. I particularly loved Adrian Grenier as Hathaways love interest in this, he is great! Otherwise I was expecting more .. didn't enjoy Hathaway & hated Simon Baker - how did he end up in this one? Cheers!
A movie that has encouraged me to visit my library to borrow the book! To be brutally honest if you have seen the shorts, you have the movie..........one of those things that really annoys me about shorts!...........It's always great to see that whole Cinderella transformation thing happening, complete with evil stepmother/boss.
It's when the evil person goes from being a one dimensional character to two that the movie really found its form for me.
A movie that, for me, held my attention, amused me, touched me and at the end of the day made me reflect on my life!
Way better than the book. :)
Great Movie. Had overlooked it when it was showing at the theatres but found it to be a very entertaining movie with a great moral to it.
I was disappointed after the rave reviews I heard about this movie because it was just the same old formula. "Not-cool" girl gets thrown into "in-crowd", resists, succumbs, loses herself, figures out what's important, yadda yadda yadda. Nice enough to watch, but nothing new.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, it shows you just how catty people can be in the fashion industry.
I hated it. Awful 2 dimensional unlikeable characters. Not one likeable person there....not even those we were meant to like. I felt it was flat, boring and a waste of time. Obnoxious and disconcerting.
I'm not really sure what it was about this movie but I really enjoyed it. I'm not usually into chick flicks but this one had some quality... in the acting and the storyline.... that most lack.
I've seen at the movies and now again. My daughter who is 10 loved it. Great clothes and better story than the book.
What a lot of hype for a nasty old woman and a silly girl who put up with all that nonsense. My husband and I thought it was a waste of time!
Top quality movie with fine performances. A real joy, and much to ponder on as well.
Pure fashion chick flick, although Meryl was great as always.
Excellent performance by Meryl Streep. Not such a nasty person as some of the bosses I have worked for however!. The storyline is predictable and thus progresses slowly at times however Streep's performance makes it a worthwhile watch.
Great fast moving movie with laughs along the way.
Meryl Streep is excellent in her role as usual. Really enjoyed watching this movie.
I enjoyed this movie and surprisingly so did my husband. It is centred around the fashion industry but is more character driven by strong performances by the leading players. Definitely one to watch
Brilliant - clever and funny!
Clever and funny movie, worth watching.
Could be believable had some funny bits in it.
Very silly... if you are a girl and teen maybe you will enjoy, else, don't bother...
I can see this film in time becoming a classic - It is definitely a girl film - Meryl Streep is as usual a classy actress and actually has you spell bound with her very believable performance as the Editor of a very famous fashion magazine.
Anne Hathaway plays her assistant brilliantly. If you love fashion, clothes and all the bitching in the industry, it is a must see film. Fabulously funny, witty and very entertaining
This is such a rip of Ugly Betty which to my understanding predates this movie by a good length of time. Sure, it's been tweaked and a great performance from Streep. Entertaining.
I enjoyed this very much. A big girls film. Not for the guys. A grown up more mature version, classy of,"Ugly Betty".
Fantastic movie, even for a second time round, well worth watching.
It's fun - American style, all glitz and trivial plot. But Meryl Streep is outstanding, - as always!
Bit like the old movie, 9 to 5. Very predictable.
Sound quality very ordinary.
I didn't think this one was worth they hype. Meryl Streep was good as the awful Miranda Priestly (and looked to have had a lot of fun with the role) but the rest of the acting was fairly wooden (with the exception of the excellent Emily Blunt in a supporting role). The plot was amazingly predictable and the characters all far too stereotypical for my liking. If you've nothing better to do give it a watch but otherwise try something else.
Anne Hathaway and her character Andy Sachs are a bit annoying and the plot is fairly ordinary. Fortunately for the movie, Meryl Streep saves the day!
Enjoyed and easy to watch.
Not as good as I hoped, bit too obvious
Great flick, Meryl Streep is such a biatch it's fantastic!!
Ok, but not as good as i had hoped
not what i thought it was going to be but worth watching good actors but had a moral to the story
Light and frothy, but with very little substance. Meryl Streep plays her role well as the dragon lady. The movie can be seen, probably should be seen, as as a statire/critique of the fashion magazine business; and as such is fun. But don't expect anything profound.
Very enjoyable Meryl Streep at her best.
Good scenery but a movie to a formula, no real story.
different, but a nice movie to watch i wasn't unhappy that i hired this dvd
I really enjoyed this. As always, Meryl Streep did not fail to please! And it wasn't full of sex and nudity!
one of the best chick flicks in awhile. well worth watching
Great easy to watch movie. The story line was not always predictable which made it even more interesting to watch. Worth watching
Light hearted funny.
Able to sit with the girls and have a laugh.
the price you pay for glamour.
Fairly light chick flick. Not a lot of substance but a good way to spend a rainy afternoon
It was a kak for sure. If you love the series 'Ugly Betty' then this movie is for you and anyoone in the industry will also get a right giggle at the spoof.
enjoyed it, worth watching.
Ecellent movie, I loved it.
Good enjoyed it, Meryl Streep acted very well.
I loved this movie. I think Anne Hathaway is excellent in all her movies. It is a good one to watch with your teenage daughter, as I did. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Boys may not think the same though.
Enjoyable - I love Meryl... a great story. Worth while viewing.
The movie was watchable and rather relaxing
A bit long winded but otherwise worth watching
not a bad film, but not earth shattering.
Fairly predictable but an easy to watch movie with a fun performance by Meryl Streep.
was not to bad not wat i thought it would be
Meryl Streep is excellent, as always. The rest of the movie was predictable and boring.
Worth watching, if only for the fabulous costumes and *hot* shoes!
Excellent chick flick, even if you are not a Meryl Streep fan see this movie. Ann Hathaway is terrific too but Meryl Streep is truly fabulous in this film. You will want to watch it over and over.
A very funny movie, well worth watching.
The wife liked it more than me :)
Streep put in a solid performance as you would expect but I thought it was very ordinary, ( yes my wife agreed! ) story line shallow and limited humour, failed to hold your attention, if you liked high fashion and bitchy behaviour you might get something out of it. Not recommended
Well worth a look. Streep is fantastic.
Very ordinary, slow movie - quite boring really
Not as funny as I expected
Loved it a great girls movie
Very entertaining unless you've read the book which is vastly different and much funnier. Meryl Streep, as always, was fantastic as Miranda.
It's OK if you haven't read the book which is heaps better & quite funny whereas the movie isn't. Enjoyed it anyway, Meryl Streep, as always, was great.
I love Anne Hathaway movies but Meryl Streep stole the show. Totally entertaining, a good movie to relax and enjoy.
Meryl Streep plays her role so very well, believe me, there are people out there just like her, in all walks of life.
Great performance by Meryl Streep but not as catching as i thought.
A great movie for gals (although my husband enjoyed it too!) who love fashion, New York and Paris (in about that order). Meryl Streep is outstanding, Anne Hathaway is likeable and well- suited to the role of Andy, and Emily Blunt lots of sarcastic fun. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Excellent movie,as always Meryl Streep is a delight to watch and nails her part to a"T".All supporting c ast were great too.Great viewing
Great performance from Meryl Streep. Interesting look at how women attain and maintain power in the modern professional world.
Loved the movie, easy to watch and funny.
Good to remind you of the things that really matter!
Watch it for the clothes & shoes.
great movie, I really enjoyed it
As a movie, not worse than average, but anyone who has read the book, will end up feeling more annoyed by the butchery than satisfied!
Outstanding, I could not leave my chair.
It was a good movie. I loved the actors and the performances it's a good release with the new TV series Ugly Betty. Well I liked it.
A very enjoyable and interesting movie with a good cast and storyline, however, it wasn't as good as I expected. The outcome was fairly predictable and was probably intended as a "chick flick" rather that to a wider audience scope.
it was very interesting to gain insight into the fashion industry and see the interactions between the characters
Another great movie for Ann Hathaway
Shows the brutality and ruthlesness in the fashion industry. Brilliant performance by Meryl Steep and a superb supporting cast.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie from the title i didn't know what to expect but i enjoyed it. This movie reminded me of ugly betty similiar story line but the end is great.
Predictable, but a very enjoyable and easy movie to watch.
The biggest let down in this movie is Anne Hathaway, real shame since she was outstanding in Brokeback Mountain. However as everyone probably knows the "Runway" characters are wonderful to watch and hope that you are not like these shallow people.
An Interesting Flick even for the guys
This movie put a smile on my face by the end,a good GIRLS movie..
Clever script and fab cast - especially Hathaway & Streep. Good lesson in following one's own compass and the lures of superficial episodes along the way.
I really enjoyed this movie - great perfomances from Streep, Hathaway and cast.
Some amusing lines and scenes, but plot is pretty obvious and you can see most of the plot lines coming!
Very good, amusing.... worth a watch
Great, funny and entertaining. Definitely worth a look!
