Critic Reviews for Bedazzled
In films of this sort, too often the camera records the fun instead of joining in it. However, that is certainly not the case in this magnificently photographed, intelligent, very funny film.
Here is a time capsule of '60s era self-loathing and misogyny captured in brilliant comic form.
I found a lot of it only mildly amusing but always enjoyable, due mostly to the rapport between the mischievous Cook and the sawed-off sad sack Moore.
Cook and Moore were a perfect team, not only in their verbal delivery and acting styles, but also physically -- and cinematically.
...the duo's best film, Bedazzled brought the spirit of Swinging London plus impudent pokes at religion, politics, and pop culture itself to their new audiences.
Audience Reviews for Bedazzled
Despite the feel of a joke too long and a weak ending still a welcome addition to the pantheon of brit comedy. Cook has a roaring good time as George Spiggot, who is supposedly Beezlebub, Mr. Scratch, Mephistopheles, and Legion, (though he comes off as more of a prankster Puck) and he's trying to get back into heaven with every dirty trick he can pull against lovelorn Dudley Moore a schmuck who sells his soul for the girl of his dreams (Eleanor Bron). Better than the remake, but you've heard that saying before, haven't you? Quick witted fun.
This movie is very funny at first, but the story is very familiar and the jokes wear thin in the middle of the movie. Of course it does have a good cast, and they're good in the movie. There are some good parts, but overall it's not a great movie.
Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's attempt at a feature long film. The movie was an over-stretched sketch and over-done. Not too bad movie, but not good movie either.

|Stanley Moon:||Including what?|
|George Spiggott:||That everything I've ever told has been a lie. That's not true.|
