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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

A surefire comedy hit that allows [Elizabeth Hurley] and Brendan Fraser to strut their stuff in diverse comic characterizations.

A fun little flick that is easy on the head and, with Hurley as a sexy Devil, easy on the eyes, too.

Some big laughs, though they're grounded more in slapstick and sexual embarrassment than the original's still-acute social observation.

You'll be suitably amused, but it's a safe bet you won't be dazzled.
