Devil Inside

Last night I did something I very rarely do. I went to see a new movie at the theater. Knowing that Steve wouldn’t want to see it, my friend Mary Hutton and I saw The Devil Wears Prada. I read the book several years ago and don’t remember all the details, but I was dying to see the movie. So here’s what I thought:

  1. Meryl Streep was outstanding! She was so elegant and poised and played Miranda to a T.
  2. Anne Hathaway was good as the assistant, but scenes where she was drinking or sleeping with guys were a little weird. She just seemed so young to be doing that. Or maybe I’m just old. No, she seemed young.
  3. The girl who played Emily, the other assistant, was brilliant. I loved her.
  4. Stanley Tucci was extremely underrated in this movie. His part was terrific and he added so much to the workings of the magazine.
  5. The clothes, shoes and accessories were divine. I love food too much to starve myself for fashion, but I can understand how people get caught up in the world of beauty.
  6. One of my favorite lines is where Tucci’s character tells Andi (Hathaway) that “size 0 is the new 2, size 2 is the new 4 and 6, well 6 is the new 12.” Guess that makes me a plus-size!

This is a movie I want to own when it comes out on DVD.
