Amid fun details, teens might miss message. Read Common Sense Media's The Devil Wears Prada review, age rating, and parents guide. A delightfully dishy novel about the all-time most impossible boss in the history of impossible bosses and the basis for the major motion picture starring. Most recent college grads know they have to start at the bottom and work their way up. But not many picture themselves having to pick up their boss's dry.
In Paris, she has a surprise encounter with Christian. Later that night, Miranda finally lets down her guard and asks Andrea what she has learned, and where she wants to work afterwards.
She promises to place phone calls to people she knows at the New Yorker on Andrea's behalf once her year is up and suggests she take on some small writing assignments at Runway. Back at the hotel, Andrea gets urgent calls from Alex and her parents asking her to call them. She does and learns that Lily is comatose after driving drunk and wrecking a car.
Though her family and Alex pressure her to return home, she tells Miranda she will honor her commitment to Runway. Miranda is pleased, and says her future in magazine publishing is bright, but phones with another impossible demand at Christian Dior 's Paris fashion show. Andrea decides that her family and friends are more important than her job, and realizes to her horror that she is becoming more and more like Miranda.
She refuses to comply with Miranda's latest outrageous request, and when Miranda scolds her publicly, Andrea replies, " Fuck you , Miranda. Fuck you. Her romantic relationship with Alex is beyond repair, but they remain friends.
Lily recovers and is lucky to receive only community service for her DUI charge. In the last chapter Andrea learns her dispute with Miranda made her a minor celebrity when the incident made " Page Six ". Afraid she has been blacklisted from publishing for good, she moves back with her parents. She works on short fiction and finances her unemployment with profits made from reselling the designer clothing she was provided for her Paris trip.
Seventeen downloads one of her stories.
At the novel's end, she returns to the Elias-Clark building to discuss a position at one of the company's other magazines and sees Miranda's new junior assistant, who looks as harried and put-upon as she once did.
Weisberger stated in publicity materials that Priestly's demands are partial fiction and a composite of actual experiences she and her friends had in their first jobs.
Kate Betts , a former editor of Harper's Bazaar who also worked for Wintour at one point in her career, spared no barb in the Times Book Review , stressing the main character's ingratitude at the unique opportunity of working at Vogue: Maslin avoided naming either the magazine where Weisberger actually worked or the woman she allegedly modeled her main character on. Critics who favored the book admitted it had problems, as any first novel might, but praised it as a "fun, frivolous read".
The film version was released on June 30, by 20th Century Fox. Production took place during fall , on location in New York and Paris. Weisberger herself made a very brief non-speaking cameo appearance as the twins' nanny.
Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns , the book's sequel, is set a decade after the events of the first novel. In it, Andy is the editor for a new bridal magazine. But as she plans her own wedding, she remains haunted by her experience with Miranda until the two meet again.
Associated Press stated, 'The book successfully sprinkles pop culture tidbits to keep up the breezy tone In , it was reported that Broadway producer Kevin McCollum who has previously produced the musicals Rent and Avenue Q amongst others had signed a deal two years earlier with Fox to develop some of the films from its back catalog into musicals for the stage.
He expressed particular interest in Mrs.
Doubtfire and The Devil Wears Prada. Early in , it was officially announced by McCollum that in partnership with Fox Stage Productions and Rocket Entertainment,  a musical version of The Devil Wears Prada influenced by both the film and the book would be produced. Sir Elton John who also wrote the scores for Billy Elliot and The Lion King amongst others was announced as the composer for the project and Paul Rudnick most notable for writing the film Sister Act would write the lyrics and story.
The casting and production schedule is still to be announced but it is aimed to play on Broadway.

Choice Movie: Let's do a short list of comparisions, shall we? The book Andrea has a steady boyfriend Ales, and lives with her best friend from childhood, Lily Takes the job because it's the only magazine in New York that offered an interview Puts her personal life on hold to be the beck-and-call girl for a Bitch Meets a hot writer who is totally jonesing for her and offers her several opportunities to, ahem improve her social standing She kinda ignores her failing love life and her best friend's alcohol addiction until it's too late to reverse either Goes to Paris with Miranda because the Sr.
Assistant gets Mono When is Paris she gets the call that her best friend's drinking caused a terrible accident and she must come home Finally has her fill and tells Miranda off, then gets fired Kinda blah ending in which she gets freelance work and gets to waltz back into the Runway office for a potential writing assignment The movie Andrea lives with her boyfriend, and has a small group of friends, one of which happens to be a black girl we could assume is Lily Takes the job because it was available Puts her personal life on hold to be the beck-and-call girl for a Bitch Meets a hot writer who keeps popping up in her life when she desperately needs help and a little pick me up, flirt-wise Her boyfriend eventually gets fed up and sorta calls for a 'break' Goes to Paris with Miranda because the Sr.
Assistant gets hit by a car and is then fired by Andrea because her mind is too adled when sick at an event to immediately recall a guest's name Discovers a plot to overthrow Miranda after she recently viewed a vunerable side and does her best to warn her, only to learn Miranda knew all along and didn't need her help. This is when she decides she's had enough and litterally walks off the job Happy ending ensues with her getting a crap job and, unknowingly is seen by Miranda, who approves of her own fashion sense If I had read the book then saw the movie, I think I would have been pissed off at the screenwriters.
As it was, I did the opposite, but am still pissed.
I thought the book sucked large portions of ass. There was quite a bit that was humorous, I'll grant you and the author that much, but it was so repetitive when describing her tasks which I guess was the point that I simply felt beat down.
Gotta give that to her: she did know how to make her readers relate to her misery. Did I like the book?
