Movie Info

How far will a man go to win the woman he loves? That's the devilish question behind this satirical romantic comedy. Elliot Richards (Brendan Fraser), a low-level white-collar worker, has fallen in love with his co-worker Allison (Frances O'Connor), who barely knows he exists. Desperate to win her love, sad sack Elliot is approached by the Devil (Elizabeth Hurley), who offers him seven wishes in exchange for his soul. Elliot accepts, but none of his wishes works out quite the way that he had

Watchable as she may be, Hurley is not the Devil for this movie.

Delivers laughs at a rather more than intermittent rate, and Elizabeth Hurley is a fun devil.

[Hurley and Fraser] make this film a whole lot better than it should have been.

So over the top you'll either enjoy it or be bothered and bewildered by it.

It is lacking in wickedness. It doesn't smack its lips when it's naughty.

This is about as simple and uncomplicated you can get, but it isn't trying to do anything beyond providing some quick and easy laughs in a refreshingly heavenly comedy.

Charming Fraser Faustian tale with lots of sexual innuendo.

Just another weak vehicle for Fraser.

Hurley is great fun to watch, a Faustian powerhouse of curves, smoky eyes and big hair who sounds exactly like Jackie Collins doing an imitation of Madonna's pan-European accent. It's creepy, but effective.

[Whenever] Hurley disappears, and so does much of the film's energy.

October 14, 2007 Full Review Source:

Decent enough entertainment as written, though many will regret the movie's eleventh-hour detour into pieties.

July 23, 2007 Full Review Source:

As if by magic, this lowbrow film falls together and works in a charming, goofy way.

There's nothing here that's liable to set you pondering metaphysical questions, but Bedazzled is a perfectly reasonable excuse for a none-too-bright Hollywood comedy.

entertains on a very shallow level

For a comedy about heaven and hell, Bedazzled doesn't make it out of purgatory.

June 12, 2003 Full Review
Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

A slapstick morality play about the dire consequences of selling one's soul to the Devil and trying to find happiness in wealth, fame, power, or intellectual prowess.

Devilishly funny.

Curiously, the new version omits much of the material that made the first movie so memorable -- including the nuns on trampolines -- and replaces it with gags that probably seemed much funnier on paper than they are on the screen.

If Fraser keeps up with performances such as these, he may have a bright future in comedy after all.

Bedazzled will make you laugh, loudly and with great frequency. With a film like this, nothing else really matters.

If only the movie had the excitement of Hurley's wardrobe.

October 10, 2001 Full Review Source:

Much of the fun, most of the satire, and all of the wit have been removed, leaving us a light, sanitized, pale imitation of the original.

Movie Metropolis

El resultado final pudo haber sido mucho mejor, de no ser por el meloso final con todo y mensaje moralista de que cada persona debe de estar contenta con quien es en realidad

March 14, 2001 Full Review Source: Moviola

has a few laughs here and there, but it feels largely like a thrown-together piece of work

Audience Reviews for Bedazzled

Lame-o remake. Why? It's not the stars' fault as they are trying to deliver. This one I fault a) the script - so much potentially evil, snide fun passed by in order to be safe and middle-of-the-road. b) the casting director - simply the wrong choices as the leads and finally, c) the director, Harold Ramis, who could've watched the first version and used new and better tech to deliver a truly conniving, wicked demon (ala Al Pacino - its a lot to ask but still), upped the ante some, which'd've improved the comedy. Stick with the first one instead.

Yeah, it's crap, but it's light and (mostly) entertaining. Brendan Fraser is likeable. Can't stand Liz Hurley, but have to admit she is attractive here and love some of her outfits. Not a bad comedy.

Super Reviewer

Without Brendan Fraser playing all of his wacky characters in his "Wish Universes," the movie would have fallen flat on it's face, but his acting, along with some funny moments are really all the film has going for it. Once the first half concludes, we keep getting more of the same until the "touchy-feely" type of moments pass before the credits role. The direction the film takes is fine, the character arches are all present, the acting is fine, and the premise, albeit ridiculous, is acceptable. I could think of a million comedies to watch before this, but there wasn't anything that I hated about it. It's a shrug your shoulders and walk away type of film! "Bedazzled" is fine television substance!

Wow, was this movie crap. I hate Brendan Fraser. I have yet to see a good performance by him. He tried in Crash- failed. Mummy? Yeah, it was straight up blockbuster B-movie but he still failed. This movie? My gosh... Anyways, this movie sucked, it was boring and not funny. Don't watch it.
