    An agreeably shallow comedy.

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

    The whole thing is humbug, a giant ad for the industry it affects to critique.

    Name user

    The Devil Wears Prada is two films in one: a caustic, energetic satire of the fashion world and a cautionary melodrama.

    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.

    The Devil Wears Prada is primarily an occasion to celebrate Meryl Streep as a grand comedienne.

    The Devil Wears Prada tells a familiar story, and it never goes much below the surface of what it has to tell. Still, what a surface!

    A fun, entertaining date movie.

    The Devil Wears Prada is a clear case of able actors elevating an ordinary script, a movie that's as entertaining to watch as it's easy to predict.

    A lightweight chick flick that, despite gaping plot holes, will likely be a favorite of anyone who adores pretty women in pretty clothes.

    Name user

    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.

    Name user

    The Devil Wears Prada is an awards season attraction that somehow escaped into the temperate months of the super and the silly, all the more reason to applaud its audacity.

    Name user

    The Devil Wears Prada is a movie that revels in pleasure: the pleasure of fashion, of luxury, of power and ambition. It's also a tremendous pleasure to watch.

    Name user

    Single-handedly, Streep lifts Prada from adequate chick flick into intoxicating character study.

    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.

    The Devil Wears Prada is sassy, smart and sophisticated, a Working Girl for the new millennium.

    It's all very light and pleasurable, and for fashionistas it's as fun as a sample shoe sale.

    The movie is no thigh-slapper, by any means, but veteran TV director David Frankel (Sex and the City) has given it a consistently whimsical touch.

    3/4
    Name user

    Aside from Streep, the movie feels curiously light -- a timid satire afraid of upsetting the industry it derides.

    Name user

    This is a breezy and enjoyable piece of pop entertainment -- a welcome reminder of what Hollywood used to be good at.

    Slight but entertaining, The Devil Wears Prada is an ugly duckling-Cinderella tale set in the fashion industry, in which the wicked stepmother is far more interesting than the princess-to-be.

    It's unlikely to change anyone's life or even anyone's dress size, but The Devil Wears Prada provides a pleasing helping of light satire and a chance for Meryl Streep to slip into another terrific performance.

    The Devil Wears Prada has the look of many studio movies. But if you pay heed to the craft in the details, there's satisfying quality here.

    Malice sparkles in The Devil Wears Prada. The fashion-world comedy achieves this plum by resuscitating the almost-dead virtue of dynamic dialogue.

    The Devil Wears Prada is being positioned as a movie for grown-ups and others who know what, or who, or when, or where, Prada is.

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

    At once coolly indifferent and fanatically detail-obsessed, coiffed off-white hair emphasizing a hawk's hooded gaze, Streep is the scariest, most nuanced, funniest movie villainess since Tilda Swinton's nazified White Witch.

    Name user

    Crafted like a high end TV show, it's a sort of video Vogue -- lite, brite and trite.

    Name user

    A sharp, surprisingly funny excursion into the catty realm of women's magazines.

    What makes the film more than fairly good fluff is Streep's performance.

    Meryl Streep inspires both terror and a measure of awe as the imperious editor of a glossy fashion magazine in the screen version of Lauren Weisberger's best-selling novel.

    Fun, flirty, spirited, sexy, you can't take your eyes off it. You've gotta have it. And then just as powerfully as it bursts onto the scene and commands your attention, it dies.

    Name user

    Streep makes it work. Streep makes it fun. Best known for her dramatic brilliance, Streep has done strong comedic turns in the past, and this performance is a reminder of that, and then some.

    Name user

    A very clever adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's bestselling novel.

    Zings with unzipped quips about the insular universe of rag mags, where the length of a hemline and color of a season are accorded moral significance.

    The film is delightful -- what Sex and the City could have been with intelligence and real wit instead of rote bitchiness.

    The laughs were largely missing from the whiny book -- which is to this movie what Wrangler jeans are to John Galliano's fall collection.

    The Devil Wears Prada is crisper, less self-righteous and mercifully shorter than its intermittently funny but interminable source.

    Consider The Devil Wears Prada an attractive makeover of the original [book].

    Killer cast, killer clothes, killer laughs. And best of all, you don't have to know the difference between Donna Karan and Donna Summer to delight in the film's wicked workplace politics.

    The Devil Wears Prada is the first classy, elegant and really entertaining film of 2006.

    Dramatically anorexic.

    If there's any drama here, it's slender -- maybe a size 2.

    Clothes to die for and an outrageous fashion diva compete for attention in this dishy comedy.

    Everyone knows that Meryl Streep is the high priestess of drama, but she never gets enough credit for her comedy skills. That should change with The Devil Wears Prada.

    Streep single-handedly elevates this sitcomy but tolerably entertaining adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's bestselling 2003 roman a clef.

    It's Streep who pops our flashbulbs.
