January 1, 2000
Much of the writing is genuinely clever, and the really big laughs are ignited with crowd-pleasing frequency.
January 1, 2000
Most of these sketches devolve -- with apologies to the esteemed Mr. Darwin -- into schoolyard sniggering as fast as drool runs down a chin.

January 1, 2000
Delivers laughs at a rather more than intermittent rate, and Elizabeth Hurley is a fun devil.
January 1, 2000
A positively divine comedy.

Outrageous fun.

January 1, 2000
More than funny. And despite the subtle accents of brimstone and sulphur, a breath of fresh air.
January 1, 2000
The lavish scenes and gaudy effects can't compensate for the lack of genuine wit.
January 1, 2000
Brendan Fraser is one funny, mixed-up guy. And as Ms. Lucifer, the new scourge of Fraser's life, Elizabeth Hurley crackles with sexy sarcasm.

January 1, 2000
It is lacking in wickedness. It doesn't smack its lips when it's naughty.

January 1, 2000
Consistently funny.
January 1, 2000
Funny as Fraser is, he can't eliminate those extraneous stunts and special effects, he can't turn a series of scenes into a coherent whole, and he can't steer the film away from its sappy, programmatic ending.

January 1, 2000
A comedy that is weak even by today's humble standards, and pitiful when measured against the Cook-Moore version.
January 1, 2000
So over the top you'll either enjoy it or be bothered and bewildered by it.
January 1, 2000
What the film doesn't have, ironically, is a soul.
January 1, 2000
The new writing team has dumbed-down the script to such an extent that the jokes sound like rejects from a Farrelly brothers comedy.
January 1, 2000
I think retooling Bedazzled relies most significantly on getting just the right devil, and you couldn't come up with a more perfect Luciferess than Elizabeth Hurley.
January 1, 2000
A lively, generally amusing remake.
January 1, 2000
It's involving -- as an OK date movie -- primarily because of a tour de force as Elliot's multiple selves by Brendan Fraser.
January 1, 2000
A little more script work, at the very least, should have gone into the manufacture of the black comedy Bedazzled.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 1, 2000
Fraser and Hurley are terrifically matched for their interplay, and some of the writing is so smart it outclasses the film's cartoonish feel and occasional foray into hokey special effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 1, 2000
A cute and clever good-vs-evil parable that ought to appeal to those weary of SNL retreads and gross-out humor.
January 1, 2000
Not only is this film persistently unfunny, but it is consistently uninvolving.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
Watchable as she may be, Hurley is not the Devil for this movie.
January 1, 2000
Flat and lame.
January 1, 2000
[Hurley and Fraser] make this film a whole lot better than it should have been.
January 1, 2000
By the end of the movie, I wasn't so much bedazzled as bedraggled.
January 1, 2000
It offers a diverting couple of hours at the movies.

There's no real dazzle in Bedazzled, though you may be befuddled trying to figure out why anyone was compelled to make the effort.
