Pretty Good

9 Jul

I needed a date for the weekend, so I went to see The Devil Wears Prada, where the ratio of guys to girls was, like, 1:7.

Nevertheless, though I walked out as single as I went in, I enjoyed the movie, so I guess it was worth it.

I mean, putting aside that some things are a bit far-fetched (like the fact that a modern job seeker — and an aspiring journalist — would not do her homework before an interview), I think Anne Hathaway gives a good performance, Meryl Streep is truly bitchy, and Stanley Tucci is fun, and the movie is light and easy to watch.

It’s hard to believe a boss could really be that much of a tyrant, but then again, I’ve been lucky thus far to have less demanding bosses than Miranda Priestley so I guess it’s possible somewhere.

Basically, The Devil Wears Prada is fun and generally well-made and fast-moving, and despite its subject matter, not really a chick flick. So I’m going to give it a solid B and recommend it.

It’s one of the better movies I’ve seen lately (though I guess that’s not really saying too much).
