The Breakdown of 'The Devil Wears Prada'

Anne Hathaway is an acclaimed actor now, but in the mid 2000s, she was known better for princess movies aimed at pre-teen girls. Along with Brokeback Mountain, it was The Devil Wears Prada where she started to move into more adult roles and prove herself as a diverse actor. Speaking of acting, Meryl Streep had been a beloved actor for decades, but her role here ended up being one of her most recognizable. For what many may have assumed would be a silly romantic comedy about the fashion industry, it has become a movie that has endured and still discussed fondly today. It may be one of the most popular comedies of the 2000s. And I've never seen it. 

Until now. You get my first thought on the picture as I deep-dive into it along with Scott as we discuss all aspects about it along with its legacy and impact. We also talk about how it really isn't a romantic comedy despite what some claim. 

As always, we had a great time recording this show and we really hope you love it. If you do, please help us out by spreading the word on social media, so other movie fans can find us.
