I watched The Devil Wears Prada for the first time the other day. 

My favorite quote from the movie:

          “I’m on this new diet.  Well actually, I don’t eat anything at all; then when I feel
          like I’m about to faint I eat a cube of cheese.  I’m just one good stomach flu away
          from my goal weight.”

    Also I could never decide what the movie was trying to say.
    #1 Fashion is OK if that’s the only life you want to have
    #2 Who cares what you wear, just live
    #3 Fashion is just one thing out of many things that people can and do pursue to the extreme.

    Perhaps it depends on what you want out of life. A la Henry Higgins: Some don’t care what they do as long as they look good doing it. :)

    I agree! I thought the “message” (if there was one) was a little confusing. In one part of the movie fashion is built up to be the highest art form and then in other parts, fashion is depicted as a force that corrupts souls!

    Also, it bothers me a little that the heroine of the movie runs off to Paris and sleeps with slimy guy, yet we’re supposed to still think she’s a sweet, charming, innocent darling.

    I did like the movie:) And I love the Higgins’ quote! Oh, and I probably did get the quote wrong!
