    Bedazzled 1967

    ★★★½ Rewatched 27 Mar, 2015

    Not quite as funny and definitely not as good as I remember it when I used to see it over and over again years ago. Some of the wish episodes drag for far too long and the Raquel Welch bit felt even more pointless and random than I remember it being.
