Fashion Victim

"Devil Wears Prada" is a fun, fun, fun popcorn movie. Meryl Streep, as the boss from hell (we've all had them) steals every scene, and it's unfortunate that she isn't in the flick more. The story really belongs to Anne Hathaway, who plays the dumped-upon assistant as she tries to make it in the fashion mag industry. New York City has never looked more glamorous. No matter what you're wearing when you see this movie, you'll feel like a fat, frumpy slob when you leave the theater. Note to the boys: large sections of the movie are very chick flick.
