I have never seen a more predictable film. Ten seconds into the film and I knew the entire route it was about to take!
Further, there is simply no way that any business could work like that, much as there is no way the similar themed magazine "Blush" from "Just Shoot Me" would not work.
Predictable and not as hilarious as I had hoped it to be. Its only saving grace being Miss Streep, but her choice to do this role has dented my confidence in her future roles. Watch this at your own risk!

An easy film to watch, I expected a satire of the fashion industry, but the writers seemed on their side from pretty early on, the size zero thing is seen as something to aspire to, which is not a healthy ideal to be advertising, and many of the storylines introduced weren't explored, but just left to die out. That said, the film really belongs to Meryl Streep, she oozes bile throughout, but I still ended up being on her side. If you want something undemanding but watchable then this is for you.

inspirational power, a true stone faced wagon. streep is excellent in her role as the toughest dragon in a fashion magazine. she has the razon sharp sarcasm of absolutely fabulous without the farce. i really loved this film. even as a person with no interest in fashion i thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of the business and was very impressed with the vast wardrobe displayed. at times the story is a bit wishy washy with american emotional drama, but streep is perfect. definitely watch this.

This movie is so bad, its not even funny. Anyone who has read the book will see that this is a very poor imitation. Anne Hathaway was a bad choice for this film. She's convincing in movies as a school girl but thats it. The edginess of the characters in the book is missing and that makes the movie dull and boring.

Not sure how to describe this movie. It has so much in it that us 'common' people go through in life :) as well as what the 'upper class' people seem to be. Totally enjoyed it and it's a definite must for anyone one who wants to have a little smile on their faces when the movie ends. Luv it.
