Bedazzled (2000)



Critic Consensus: Though it has its funny moments, this remake is essentially a one-joke movie with too many flat spots.

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

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.

Lyles' Movie Files

Charming Fraser Faustian tale with lots of sexual innuendo.

Common Sense Media

Just another weak vehicle for Fraser.

Cinema Crazed

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.

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!
