The Devil Wears Prada

So many movies yet to post about, but here's a goody I just finished watching about 10 minutes ago. A friend of mine raved about the book The Devil Wears Prada and was so excited when they made the movie. It didn't sound very interesting to me, blah fashion blah usual story. I picked it up just to see what she was talking about, and am I glad I did.

The Devil Wears Prada is about a girl Andrea who went to college for journalism but was finding it a little hard to break into the field. Typical for a student without too many connections. She lives in New York with her boyfriend Nate and they and a couple friends regularly hang out and commiserate over only having jobs that pay the rent. Andrea, as a last resort goes to work as an assistant at a fashion magazine Runway, which is run by the ice queen herself, Miranda Priestly. Andrea puts up with a lot, and doesn't get a whole lot of help from Miranda's other assistant Emily.

Of course, Andrea probably would have quit very fast, without help from your stereotypical gay fashionista Nigel. Andrea sticks it out, but will it be worth it?

Wow, wasn't too excited about this movie, but it turned out to be a great chick flick. I laughed, I cried, and certainly was surprised. Overall? Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
