The Devil Wears Prada

I picked up this movie for my wife; figured it'd be a nice chick-flick and don't all girls like romance and fashion

The Devil Wears Prada is about an aspiring journalist, Anne Hathaway, who gets a job as the second assistant to a ruthless fashion magazine editor, Meryl Streep.

At first, Hathaway's, Andy Sachs, thinks the fashion business is a joke and only stays on board to pay the rent until she can get a real job for a newspaper.

After days of ruthless, stinging barbs about her weight and sense of style, Sachs decides to join the team and begins wearing the latest trends.

As she gets deeper and deeper into the business, her relationships with her friends begin to suffer.

Things come to a head when Sachs is invited to Paris with her boss.

For a girly movie based on a book, this film wasn't too bad. I'm a hesitant fan of Hathaways. I'm not much of a Streep fan (does she have to cry in every movie?) but the music and the style of this film kept it interesting.

There was enough humor in it to keep me on the couch on a Valentine's Day.
