What seemed like a completely unnecessary cash-grab back when it was first announced turned out to be a really fun experience, very reminiscent of "The Devil Wears Prada".
The story in "Cruella" is mostly what you'd expect from a movie like this, with a few little surprises here and there. The tone is delightfully over-the-top, while the costumes are amazing and definitely award-worthy.
However, the main reason why I liked "Cruella" as much as I did were the two main performances. The acting by Emma Stone as Estella/Cruella is superb and Emma Thompson is brilliant as the villainous Baroness.
