Meet the Devil. She's giving Elliott seven wishes. But not a chance in Hell.
Elliot Richardson, suicidal techno geek, is given seven wishes to turn his life around when he meets up with a very seductive Satan. The catch: his soul. Some of his wishes include a 7 foot basketball star, a rock star, and a hamburger. But, as could be expected, the Devil must put her own little twist on each his fantasies.
I don't know I liked the movie even though I watched for third times. 'Nuff said.
Been a few years since I last saw this. Still enjoyed it, not hilarious, but laugh out loud a couple of times and Elizabeth Hurley looks AMAZING-which always helps.
Bedazzled is one of those movies that could have been complete trash. But, with the aid of its cast, this quirky comedy is just pretty darn entertaining and funny.
This movie was created when Brendan Fraser was in the spotlight. It seemed like he was in every movie. And, really, Brendan Fraser is underrated. He can pull off the idiot, the suave guy and the nerd with ease. Each one of these personalities is evidenced in this movie.
There are some classic funny moments in this film. From the cocaine drug lord to the hulking basketball player who is less than endowed, Bedazzled is less about the overall plot and more about the ridiculous situations the main character is thrust…
I know I shouldn't, but I honestly can't help liking this movie. I can't bring myself to dislike Brendan Fraser, and Liz Hurley is super hot.
This comedy coasts on its concept in phenomenally lazy ways, but cheap and easy laughs still count for something. Rampant sexism, homophobia, and general mean-spiritedness are a big problem, but at least Elizabeth Hurley is both extremely hot and genuinely entertaining in her Satanic performance.
This comedy remake just doesn't really work. Not sure if it is the lack of chemistry between the leads of if it is just the fact that Elizabeth Hurley is such a poor actress. Either way this just comes across as a bit pointless really.
Ramis' decadence in intellectual comedy? Hold on a minute... Ramis?? With a casually awful Brendan Fraser?! Oh my. What does Hollywood posses that it makes some of the strongest directors to fall? Money? Stardom? And here we are, watching what is barely a remake of the original sexualized British satire with lame jokes and... ¡Fraser hablando español!
And of course, they hardly tried to make up for the film's obvious lacking areas with the Christian speech of a black prisoner. Right... Thought-provoking, of course.... Ha! My vote is:
P.D. I'd screw that version of the devil.
The poster Letterboxd uses for this film sums it up quite well. Brendan Fraser looks inhuman, how he ever had a career is beyond me. Liz Hurley is charming and sexy enough to make it watchable. The script isn't too bad until you realise it's supposed to be a comedy.
Five stars for Liz and the people in charge of picking her outfits, subtract three for Fraser.
Despite Liz Hurley's charismatic shortcomings, Bedazzled has a few chuckles thanks to Brendan Fraser.
