The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
Good, But Not As Good As the Book.
The movie is very entertaining, and Meryl Streep has never been more hilarious.The devil does please.Emily Blunt is one to watch.Several crucial changes in the script, do make this film less enjoyable than the book.
First, the leads were cast superbly Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly and Anne Hathaway as Andrea (Andy) Sachs.The supporting cast was well cast as well, with Emily Blunt as Emily and Stanley Tucci as Nigel.
Second, why did they change Andrea's boyfriend Alex's name to Nate and his occupation from a teacher to a chef? I can see why they might change Andrea's alma mater from Brown to Northwestern, but I was completely puzzled by the name and occupation change.Third, they wrote Lili almost completely out, most likely due to time constraints.Lastly, this changes the ending only slightly from the book, though the outcome is still the same in the movie as in the book.
Still, with all the divergences from the book, this is a very entertaining film, and is worth your while.
One of the best comedies of the year 7/10
