The Devil Wears Prada Dominates More Than Just Netflix Charts

A movie about fashion, passion, and love, The Devil Wears Prada is borderline a cult classic now, but back when it was filming, even its stars didn’t believe much in it. Emily Blunt once called the film as “a fart in the wind” while describing the cast’s attitude to their not-quite-famous-yet movie — but they were all very wrong.

The Devil Wears Prada went on to become the favorite movie of thousands of people and earned numerous awards, including two Oscar nominations. On Rotten Tomatoes, it’s comfortable sitting at a 75% Critic Score and a 1% higher Audience Score, bringing it the Certified Fresh status, and earning the viewers’ love.

The Devil Wears Prada Is Back In Style

18 years after its release, the star-studded dramedy is back on Netflix: for over two weeks since February 5, The Devil Wears Prada has been living in the Netflix global Top 10 movie list. On this streaming platform alone, the iconic film has been watched for over 6,200,000 hours and counting, signifying its undying popularity with the audience.

For those unfamiliar with this gem, The Devil Wears Prada follows a young but promising graduate who books a job in a high-fashion magazine. Becoming an assistant to its iconic editor-in-chief, she had no idea just how stressful and brutal that world truly is, and a dream becomes a nightmare. She’ll have to endure more than she bargained for to stay afloat and earn her demanding boss’s graces.

If you don’t have a Netflix subscription, you can also stream The Devil Wears Prada on Hulu, Max, Apple TV, Disney Plus, and Prime Video. Almost anywhere, really.
