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.

J. R. Jones
Chicago Reader

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.

There isn't anything unexpected here; it's the usual clichťs: women are nasty cows who blithely undercut each other for jobs, and men are largely irrelevant to the process. . .

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

Andrew Sarris
New York Observer

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.

David Keyes

We continue to reflect on the movie's lessons long after the laughs have diminished because they are sound, relevant and conveyed by the talents of actors who offer legitimate stakes in the material.

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.

Luke Goodsell
Empire Magazine Australasia

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.

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.
