Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An agreeably shallow comedy."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The Devil Wears Prada is two films in one: a caustic, energetic satire of the fashion world and a cautionary melodrama."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"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."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Just another formula mediocre dramedy..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"An ideal movie for DVD: you can pick and choose moments and lines to revisit while ignoring, or trying to ignore, the thematic compromises, hectoring impulses, and structural handicaps that start to engulf the film."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Anne Hathaway is Patricia Field's latest fashion victim in this limp semi-satire."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"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."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"Nimbly assembled and tartly performed"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"There are some must-have luxuries here, first of which is Meryl Streep's fascinating performance as the fearsome Miranda Priestly."
‑ Matthew De Abaitua, Film4
"Streep is a far better reason to see The Devil Wears Prada than the movie itself."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The whole thing is humbug, a giant ad for the industry it affects to critique."
‑ , Time Out
"The Devil Wears Prada is primarily an occasion to celebrate Meryl Streep as a grand comedienne."
‑ Gene Seymour, Newsday
"An ironic measure of the film's research into the fashion-mag scene is the fact that there's almost no journalism in it."
‑ Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
"The Devil Wears Prada isn't a brilliant film, but it certainly is an entertaining one."
‑ Brandon Fibbs, BrandonFibbs.com
"It's to the film's credit that I still found it an enjoyable satire, as glossy and superficial as the industry it purports to skewer."
‑ Joe Lozito, Big Picture Big Sound
