I just watched The Devil Wears Prada for the first time

I forced myself to sit through it. It really wouldn't have taken a lot to have been a much better film and still made the same points. The characters were SO single dimensional. Nasty Meryl. The lovely pretty Anne Hathaway...who almost becomes nasty due to her ambitions, but then sees the light. Her honest, sensitive, hipster boyfriend...there's always one of them, isn't there?... living with the lead in a funky downtown railroad apartment. Does this thing want to be a movie for grown ups or teenage girls? The tacky, tacked-on radio pop music drowned out half the dialogue. Meryl's performance is one note. I really think it has the bones of an enjoyable film, but it is so infantile. A much better script and a much better director and it could have said something.
