We've all had the proverbial "bad job." In fact, so many people have had the proverbial bad job that there's a cottage industry of books and movies about having a bad job. From 9 to 5 to Office Space, the evil bosses of the world never seem to catch a break.
The Devil Wears Prada is the latest in that line and an indictment of the fashion magazine industry, based on author Lauren Weisberger's experience as an assistant to the notoriously fussy Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The film follows every tradition we've come to expect from this genre: Plucky yet unrefined Andrea (she rides the subway!) is fresh off the boat from college. She soon lucks into a job offer from Runway editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), and we know from the first scene it's going to be a terrible match.
