Monday Movie: The Devil Wears Prada

Yes, call the tabloids! I actually went to the movies!

I went to kill some time, and this was the only one I was remotely interested in watching at the time I was there–the other being Little Man, and I absolutely refuse to watch that.

I liked it.

I’m sure I’ve a character somewhere that I can use Miranda Priestly as a model for. Every writer should write a Dragon Lady character like Priestly in her/his lifetime, especially if you’re a she. I honestly rather BE a Dragon Lady, but it requires work and me lazy.

Andrea Sachs…Sigh. Why oh why oh why oh why must she turn out nice? Why couldn’t she have turned her back on Nate and her journalism dream and become another Miranda Priestly? Mind you, I think Anne Hathaway did a good job.

Wait, I think this is a roman a clef, right? I know Lauren Weisberger wrote the novel of the same name which this movie is based on, but is it a roman a clef? I don’t know.

Mary Sue. Mary Sue. Mary Sue.

This rates 8.5 out of 10.
