Consensus: A rare film that surpasses the quality of its source novel, this Devil is a witty expose of New York's fashion scene, with Meryl Streep in top form and Anne Hathaway more than holding her own.

An agreeably shallow comedy.

The Devil Wears Prada is two films in one: a caustic, energetic satire of the fashion world and a cautionary melodrama.

If Hathaway's Andy drives the pedestrian narrative -- idealistic girl learns the value of staying true to herself and her "real" friends; snore -- then Streep is the movie's soul.

Anne Hathaway is Patricia Field's latest fashion victim in this limp semi-satire.

The biggest problem with the movie, however, is that it tries to make a big deal out of a subject that has been beaten to death in the tabloids and the media.

The whole thing is humbug, a giant ad for the industry it affects to critique.

The Devil Wears Prada is primarily an occasion to celebrate Meryl Streep as a grand comedienne.

An ironic measure of the film's research into the fashion-mag scene is the fact that there's almost no journalism in it.

Movie about an ordinary girl who gets a job in a fashion magazine powerhouse. She is engulfed by the industry. I love the fashion. Meryl is brilliant.
