Forget Superman and run don't walk to see The Devil Wears Prada, a meditation on what women must compromise to experience professional success. Meryl Streep turns what should be a caricature of Anna Wintour into an admirable complex woman struggling with the sacrifices that women make to encounter enviable professional success. Anne Hathaway plays the self-entitled stupid bitch who doesn't realize she has a very good mentor and throws it all away to preserve some archaic notion of feminine "integrity" by taking a low-paying job and staying with her lame-ass boyfriend. If Miranda Priestly is the devil, I'm going to hell.
