but Meryl Streep does it so very well.
It probably wasn’t quite as funny, overall, as we had thought, but it was still a fun movie. The opening particularly was very clever, setting up the whole tension between Anne Hathaway’s character and the fashionista types at the magazine. Simon Baker’s character was a bit of a strange one. I think the one thing that makes this movie make a bit more sense, in a strange way, is knowing that it is at least loosely based on someone’s real experience. So the bizarro motivations of people, and the odd things they do – they actually make a bit more sense, because in real life people just don’t make sense.
I liked it. Not often I like comedies.
There are definite bonus points for working in the insult “Glamazon.”
