After watching The Devil Wears Prada for the 50th time this weekend, here is my Devil’s Advocate:
Pop Culture Shout-outs – Gwyneth Paltrow, Snoop Dogg, Page Six, Harry Potter, Northwestern University, Starbucks, Marc Jacobs, Charlie Rose, Michael Kors, Valentino
Best Lines – I’m one stomach flu away from making my goal weight, Was it a phone interview?, There is $8 worth of Jarlsberg cheese in there, I shant, How do you spell Gabbana?, This stuff, I’m wearing Valentino for God’s sake, And you can do anything, right?, You know the main ingredient in corn chowder is cellulite?, You have no sense of style, That’s all
Thief – Then unknown Emily Blunt totally stole every scene she was in with Anne Hathaway
Best mentor – Stanley Tucci as Nigel
Heartbreaking moment – When Andi threw that beautiful steak from Smith and Wollensky’s into the sink! That was just wrong!
Best eyebrows – Simon Baker as Christian Thompson
Best hair, actually best everything – Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly
They became even bigger stars after Devil – Adrian Grenier went on to Entourage, Heidi Klum went on to America’s Got Talent, Gisele Bundchen who played Emily’s pal went onto greater fame and fortune, Tracie Thoms went on to Love on Netflix, Rich Sommer went on to Mad Men, Simon Baker went on to star in The Mentalist
Great Soundtrack – Suddenly I See by K.T. Tunstall, Crazy by Alanis Morrisette, Vogue by Madonna
Best Toast – To jobs that pay the bills
End of post – As Miranda Priestly said, That’s all!
