How Berkeley Can You Be?
A Two-Fer from the Washington Post (Why Oh Why Can't We Have a Better Press Corps?)

After Watching "The Devil Wears Prada"...

"That audience was 9-1 female."

"This is San Francisco. Don't be too sure."

"Even so... where were all the men? Why weren't there a lot more men in the audience? I mean, the movie is a lot like "An Officer and a Gentleman" with Meryl Streep in the Louis Gossett role and Anne Hathaway as Richard Gere."

"You're demented."

"No I'm not. Well, maybe I am... but for other reasons. It's a coming-of-age story. In "An Officer and a Gentleman" we had Richard Gere learning who he is by dealing with tough sergeant Louis Gossett and lots of film of men beating up on each other with a lot of bloody noses. In "The Devil Wears Prada" we have Anne Hathaway learning who she is by dealing with tough boss Meryl Streep and lots of film of women strutting in very expensive, sexy clothes. What's not to like?"

"A lack of big explosions? You can't get men into the movie theater without big explosions?"

"Plus, plus, plus--with an audience 9-1 female, it's a great opportunity to meet women."
