so is this the devil wears prada meets analyze this?! warner bros sure hopes so… you’re watching beyond the trailer’s review of the intern… the devil wears prada and analyze this arenot only two of anne hathaway and robert deniro’s most famous films, but were also crucial tothe development of their careers. and fascinatingly, the two films’ stars were headed in differentdirections. the devil wears prada seemed the perfect culmination of the films that hadput hathaway on the map and won her many fans – the princess diaries one and two, ella enchanted!yet despite her success in prada and get smart, hathaway seemed eager to run in the oppositedirection – which brought down her personal box office numbers and let to "hatha-hate",yet also got her an oscar. as for deniro,
he already had two oscars and was a hollywoodicon, yet his box office numbers were seriously lagging. running towards comedy not only savedhis career but gave it new life, interestingly, just as a comedic turn in the devil wearsprada did for fellow prestige oscar winner meryl streep. she also has embraced comedy.and now it seems hathaway might be considering returning to comedy as well. she’s got heroscar, and while christopher nolan put her in some big movies he couldn’t sell her tomoviegoers. and don’t feel too bad, anne, he couldn’t sell fellow oscar winner marioncotillard either. and with seriously lagging box office numbers herself, hathaway seriouslyneeds another box office win. so who better to turn to than writer-director nancy meyers,right? meyers has a history of not only making
successful comedies but, in the process, allowingher leading ladies to keep their prestige status. helen hunt in what women want. dianekeaton in something’s gotta give. cameron diaz and kate winslet in the holiday. andmeryl streep in it’s complicated. hathaway does seem to fit with that group, right? andwhile on the surface the intern might seem like a slum dunk for meyers, hathaway andde niro, well, there are a few potential hiccups. first, there’s that infamous hatha-hate, aswell as a string of recent box office duds for de niro. audiences simply might not beinterested in either actor right now, just as they might not be into adult interns consideringhow owen wilson and vince vaughn’s the internship flopped. and then there’s meyers, who snuckin a message here about how guys in general
just aren’t up to snuff these days, and womennot-so-secretly miss the days when "men were men". yeah, i can see why that’s not a bigpart of the ad campaign. so, will those elements be enough to trip up the intern, or is thisa combo too big to fail?
