Just watching this, and it really annoys me how Andy's friends don't support her. She's doing a job for a year yo get experience, it's only a year, they play with her phone when they know her boss is a dragon
The boyfriend sulks when she is late for his birthday, 1 birthday

I always think they are a bunch of arseholes too.


ImperialBlether · 11/06/2017 16:02

Yes, I started another thread about this today! You're right - her friends are really awful.

Her bezzie didn't mind her being late when she produced a new Marc Jacobs handbag for her though did she?

Everyone is really shitty to Andy- I thought her Dad was mean to her too.

I know!! One of my favourite films and they are twats. They didn't mind getting expensive freebies from her new job but heaven forbid she actually worked late or gasp spoke to a male work colleague.

And her boyfriend is such a nob when she misses his birthday. You're an adult FFS, she had to work. I get the feeling he was a bit misogynistic and expected a 9-5 job girlfriend who was there to validate his Amazing-ness when he wanted it. She should've stuck with the gorgeous fashion bloke!


CherryChasingDotMuncher · 11/06/2017 16:34

Im not into fashion but the speech Meryl Streep gives after Andie sneers at the belts was bloody genius. I feel through the film she really grew up and got into the whole fashion thing, and should have bombed off her pompous mates and whiney boyfriend

Andy is sweet really. Giving her paris collection away like that.
She learnt a few lessons in life about loyalty too.


Ariawyn · 11/06/2017 16:36

So she can't afford rent, but gives away loads of coture(spelling) clothes ???

Still bloody love the film though

Yanbu. I always think this when I watch it. The bf gives me the absolute rage. When he huffs at her missing his birthday Hmm. He's like a 3yo.

The overall message isn't great tbh and Andy is a people pleaser. I worry for her in later life.

Not that I've given it way too much thought or anything Grin.

So she can't afford rent, but gives away a whole of Paris cotiure(no idea how to spell that) clothes... eBay love!!!

Still bloody love the film though

I think that's why Anne H works so well as Andy tbh.

She just comes across in real life as a complete try-hard people-pleaser.


CherryChasingDotMuncher · 11/06/2017 16:40

I wish she'd stuck it out for the year. Felt like her shitty friends won by quitting so soon


ImperialBlether · 11/06/2017 16:40

Just wrote on the other thread about this that Emily Blunt introduced her sister to Stanley Tucci and they ended up married!


Decaffstilltastesweird · 11/06/2017 16:44

I love Stanley Tucci so much! But that's neither here nor there.


DeadGood · 11/06/2017 16:47

OP - in the book (based on a true story, I think?) she doesn't give the couture collection to Emily.

She sells it to a designer seconds shop.

She also comes across as an awful whiney brat and does that thing where she says "couple weeks" instead of "a couple of weeks" throughout


ImperialBlether · 11/06/2017 18:30

But "couple weeks" is what they say over there, DeadGood!

My cousin worked as a stylist on one of the high-end glossy fashion magazines back in the 90s (not Vogue) and she says that TDWP is pretty accurate Shock
