The Devil Wears Prada

Miranda Pristley can say it or merely breath it and the refusal comes as a devastating blow to her eager bunch of minions. Those moments were my favorites in a film that promises a hearty meal but delivers a frustrating bland souffle.Meryl Streep howerer, makes it palatable and some times right down delicious.Anne Hathaway, so good in "Brokeback Mountain", is so uninteresting here that she manages to survive only when she's sharing the frame with Meryl Streep and that's because we're not looking at her. How can the fairy tale be so uneven, how can we possible root for the evil stepmother rather than Cinderella.That seems a miscalculation of enormous proportions. All in all I could actually seat through the whole thing again just to see Meryl purse her lips.
