Andy's Friends In "The Devil Wears Prada" Were The Fucking Worst


Posted on

And Andy becomes a badass bitch in her own right.

She starts off whiny, frazzled, and unsure but soon transforms into the greatest assistant Runway has ever had. Because she's totally profesh and wants to succeed.


But then when Miranda calls Andy's phone (the ~very chic for 2006~ T-Mobile Sidekick), they literally jeopardize her career by playing keep-away with it!


And the second Andy starts progressing in her career and evolving as a person, they get pissy with her.

Lily's all, "The Andy I know is madly in love with Nate, is always five minutes early, and thinks, I don’t know, Club Monaco is couture."

Yeah, and now Andy is rethinking her relationship with her lame-o boyfriend, has better things to do than be on time for your little photo thingy, and has learned how to dress appropriately for her job. THINGS CHANGE, LILY. Andy can't stay the same forever just to make you comfortable.

And speaking of Andy's lame-o boyfriend: Nate. FUCKING NATE.

He can't handle not being his girlfriend's number one priority all the time, even though she just needs to work at Runway for A SINGLE YEAR in order to get whatever job she wants.


Then he sulks like a tiny little baby man because Andy had to miss his birthday party because of HER IMPORTANT JOB THAT IS VITAL TO HER FUTURE CAREER.

You know, instead of actually communicating with his girlfriend, or understanding that her job is going to take precedence for a while, or even APPRECIATING THAT SHE LEFT AN IMPORTANT FUNCTION EARLY JUST SO SHE COULD STILL BE WITH HIM ON HIS BIRTHDAY. Oh yeah, and I'm pretty sure he'll have another birthday next year. (Unless somebody murders him, which, based on his behaviour in this movie, IS ACTUALLY PRETTY LIKELY.)

Hey, Nate, sometimes grownups have professional commitments that prevent them from attending your birthday party. Shit happens.

And you definitely didn't have to stomp off to the bedroom like a petulant child.

EVEN EMILY, who is awesome through so much of this movie, actually wants Andy to quit Runway instead of taking her place in Paris.

Really?! You expect Andy to torpedo her own career instead of doing something you can't even do anyway?!
