The Devil Wears Prada (rated PG-13 for some sensuality), based on a novel by Lauren Weisberger, is a funny and entertaining film that ends up marred by Hollywood conventions. The likeable Anne Hathaway (from the Princess Diaries movies) plays Andy, a young journalism grad eager to land a writing job in New York City. She ends up working for Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), the tyrannical head of a Vogue-like fashion magazine.
