Meet the Devil. She's giving Elliott seven wishes. But not a chance in Hell.

Spilling over with charm and just enough Harold Ramis influenced originality to be a motion picture that utilizes the appealing qualities of both its stars (Fraser and Hurley) without pimping them to death in the opening five minutes. Big extra points for including the ravishing Frances O'Connor (Mansfield Park, Kiss or Kill) as the much sought after heroine.
Elliot Richards(Bredan Fraser) is a computer troubleshooter and has done so for much of his adult life. His life is a dull one, meaningless job by day, trying to hang with people who avoid you by night. On one of these nights he sees the girl he has been drooling over for the last few years, Alison. When he is dared to go talk to her he is up for the challenge and is embarrassed when she does not remember him and walks away as he believes he is talking to her.

Luuseri tekee diilin pirun kanssa saaden seitsemän toivomusta. Lopputulemana, muutamaa poikkeamaa lukuunottamatta, ei sen onnellisempi elämä.
Mukahauska komedia fantasiamaisilla täytteillä.
I'm sure I'd like this movie less if I saw it today, but at the time I moderately enjoyed it, thanks primarily to an appropriately goofy Brendan Fraser. It's pretty dumb, but I guess I was easily amused.
This movie is honestly not that bad. The character acting is prime.
Not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Well, there are some parts that are every bit that bad come to think of it. If you haven't seen this one or the original seek out the original...it's quite a bit better.
Not as good as the original, but still a bit of a laugh, some very funny bits, some cringworthy bits. Love the fact that the dogs are named Dudley and Peter in reference to the original film.
I saw this movie with my mother, I couldn't say no ... is my mom and she prepared soooo cool snack, so... here it is.
I remember this either bing very weird, or really bad. I think Brendan Fraser appears an albino at some point.
