    If you can tell the difference between a mule and a pump, attendance at The Devil Wears Prada is mandatory. You might have to reach back to "Funny Face" to find a fashion movie so on-trend.

  • Shawn Levy

    Effortless fun: It plays like a giddy horror movie with its laughs wrapped in couture gowns.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    This smart and funny creation is not just wish-fulfilment for the "Sex And The City" generation -- it's a Wall Street for the 21st century.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Denby

    Bright and crisp and funny, the movie turns dish into art--or, if not quite into art, then at least into the kind of dazzling commercial entertainment that Hollywood, in the days of George Cukor or Stanley Donen, used to turn out.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Sinfully funny.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's an occasion for Streep to play against a stereotype, and win. It's a rout, in fact.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Though there is enough haute couture on display for a season of "Sex and the City" envy, it has definite off-the-rack appeal to regular moviegoers. In fact, it may be the one film this year where you'll see Manolo Blahniks and Doc Martens on women sitting in the same row.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Setting her (Streep) face into a mask of composure that suggests Darth Vader by way of a Kabuki actor, the most expressive of American actresses shows how power is expressed in the lack of facial and vocal expression.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Prada just feels authentic, from its glossy look to the specific and sometimes curious behavior of the secondary and tertiary characters. To watch it is like being entertained while getting an anthropological crash course.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Briskly directed by "Sex and the City" veteran David Frankel, the movie is far better than the source.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    While the picture isn't brilliant, it is, at its most entertaining, a kicky, surprisingly astute throwback to bygone Hollywood social comedies.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The Devil Wears Prada is two films in one: a caustic, energetic satire of the fashion world and a cautionary melodrama. The first works; the second doesn't.

    The devil may wear Prada, but Meryl wears the crown.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The story is glossy junk begat of just-plain junk anyway: Lauren Weisberger, who wrote the hiss-and-tell roman à clef best-seller on which the picture is based, was herself an assistant to Wintour.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Takes place in the world of haute couture. And that pretty much sums up the movie. Otherwise, it would be just another Queen of Mean, boss from hell movie. But, oh, what delicious fun Meryl Streep and her conspirators have with that world.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Actually one of the better comedies I've seen this year speaks volumes for the quality of the performances and the caliber of the script.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    A tour de force for Streep, who gives her character an unexpected measure of depth.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    The Devil Wears Prada spins Weisberger's rant into a sharp, surprisingly funny excursion into the catty realm of women's magazines. The movie skips the condescension usually aimed at this world in favor of rapt observation.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Miranda is played by Meryl Streep, an actress who carries nuance in her every pore, and who endows even her lighthearted comic roles with a rich implication of inner life. With her silver hair and pale skin, her whispery diction as perfect as her posture, Ms. Streep's Miranda inspires both terror and a measure of awe.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    A movie that revels in pleasure: the pleasure of fashion, of luxury, of power and ambition. It's also a tremendous pleasure to watch.

    Slate Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Streep single-handedly elevates this sitcomy but tolerably entertaining adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's bestselling 2003 roman a clef about a personal assistant's year of chic hell under the thumb of the dragon lady of the fashion world.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jennifer Frey

    Streep makes it work. Streep makes it fun .

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    May be accurate around the edges, but at its heart it's a fairy tale.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • William Arnold

    The bad news in this kinder, gentler, more subtle performance is that, by playing the woman (Streep) as less of a devil, the dynamic that propels the story loses much of its drive and energy, and what's left is a kind of high-class "Gidget" movie.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    A lightweight, formulaic piece of fluff, but you wouldn't know that by Meryl Streep's performance.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The comic appeal of The Devil Wears Prada is the cinematic equivalent of a size 2 - wafer-thin and ultimately lacking in meat and substance.

    USA Today Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    A scantily clad revenge memoir.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Frankel has cut, pasted and rejiggered the novel, mostly for the better. As adapted by Aline Brosh McKenna, The Devil Wears Prada is crisper, less self-righteous and mercifully shorter than its intermittently funny but interminable source.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • David Ansen

    When the satire stays focused on Streep or her snooty Brit assistant (Emily Blunt), "Prada" is malicious fun. But the central story about how smart, idealistic Anne Hathaway, as Miranda's drably dressed new assistant, loses her soul in pursuit of success and great shoes is dramatically anorexic.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    They put the material on lifts - and end up tripping into TV dramedy land.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Meryl Streep is indeed poised and imperious as Miranda, and Anne Hathaway is a great beauty who makes a convincing career girl. I liked Stanley Tucci, too, as Nigel... But I thought the movie should have reversed the roles played by Grenier and Baker. Grenier comes across not like the old boyfriend but like the slick New York writer, and Baker seems the embodiment of Midwestern sincerity.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    So stupendously funny at times that she (Streep) nearly salvages the whole thing.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It's a self-blunting satire, a toothless attack on fashionistas that twists around tortuously and ends up biting (well, gumming) its own tail.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Probably supposed to be half fashion fantasy, half satire of the fashion world. What a drag that it's not enough of either. Full Review
  • Rob Nelson

    More "Pretty Woman" than "Working Girl," The Devil Wears Prada really lives to give its angel a high-class makeover.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Stanley Kauffmann

    The best performance comes from Stanley Tucci as the Runway art director. Tucci presents a homosexual man without a trace of cartoon--shrewd, skilled, and weathered without being worn. It is a well-judged and accomplished piece of work.

    The New Republic Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    An agreeably shallow comedy.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Sometimes actors get parts so rich that they almost can't help but make meals of them. Playing a frosty, high-powered editor in The Devil Wears Prada, Meryl Streep turns the role into a four-course dinner and shows up with her own dessert...But it's hard to care about what's going on whenever she's offscreen.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    If you shut down your brain and simply take in the wardrobe and performances by Streep and Blunt you'll have a swell time, like aimlessly flipping the pages of a fashion magazine.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Mistrustful of its audience, it's full of actors -- apart from Streep -- playing broad attitudes rather than characters. Crafted like a high end TV show, it's a sort of video Vogue -- lite, brite and trite.
