Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Brendan Fraser stars in Bedazzled as Elliot, a dweebish office worker who yearns for Alison (Frances O'Connor), a coworker who barely knows he exists. When he blithely says he'd give his soul for Alison, the Devil appears in the fetching guise of Elizabeth Hurley and promises him seven wishes in exchange. Elliot is dubious at first, but agrees out of desperation. Unfortunately, his every wish always leaves the Devil with a little wiggle-room. When he asks to be rich and powerful, the Devil turns him into a drug lord beset on all sides. When he asks to be a successful, well-endowed writer, the Devil adds a male lover to the mix. The setup and situations are clever, though this Bedazzled has less bite than the original 1968 version starring Dudley Moore and Peter Cook. It does, however, provide some better comic substance for Fraser than most of his previous roles and will give his fans something to enjoy. O'Connor is entirely pleasant in her largely straight role, and Hurley fills out her part delectably by filling out a number of revealing outfits. This is an enjoyable bit of froth. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Product Description

Remake of the 1967 Dudley Moore and Peter Cook classic in which Brendan Fraser plays computer technician Elliot, who falls for Elizabeth Hurley's devilish charms, and agrees to sell his soul to her for seven wishes. He then uses the wishes to seek happiness with his co-worker Alison (Frances O'Connor), the girl he really loves. However, each time Hurley's Devil makes his dreams come true she adds a twist all of her own, making the hapless Elliot wish things were left just as they were at the beginning. This special edition features the deleted 'Rockstar' sequence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than you'd expect 29 July 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I kept the tape of this film for months because I wanted to see the original first. Now that I've seen both, I have to say that the new version is a lot better than I expected. Only using the basics of the original, rather than doing an out-and-out remake, we have a film which is highly entertaining in its own right.
Its main strength lies in shrewd use of the actors. Fraser performs well in a wide variety of roles, while Hurley gives an Anne Robinson-like performance between the fantasy scenes, while her appearances in the fantasies themselves is restricted to popping up occasionally, saying little and looking pretty. To her credit she does a great job between scenes of conveying the Devil's enthusiasm and delight for everyday acts of mischief.
The new Bedazzled avoids the main flaw of the original, namely that whatever the scene, Cook and Moore effectively played out their familiar personae over and over again. Here, Fraser handles a series of roles brilliantly, while still letting us believe that he's the same character underneath. This is most notable in a scene where he plays a basketball star frustrated at only being able to speak in cliches ("Give 110%", "There's no I in TEAM" etc). In fact, even as an avid Peter Cook fan, I have to admit that the bulk of the film is actually slightly funnier than the original, something I never in my wildest dreams expected. Although it's a shame that certain key scenes from the original aren't recreated, particularly those which explore the relationship between the two characters, it's good that it doesn't try to stick to the original too much (besides, you have to suspect that Hurley would make a mess of such scenes).
There is a but, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wickedly funny (not to mention sexy) movie 14 Sep 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Bedazzled is a surprisingly smart, genuinely funny movie about the wishes we all make and the fallacy of our belief that wealth, fame, love, etc., will truly make us happy. Taking the Dr. Faust theme to unheard of heights, the devil takes the form of Elizabeth Hurley who is indeed constantly bedazzling in a long list of outfits taken straight from the minds of adolescent teenaged boys (and a few of us who used to be adolescent teenaged boys). Gorgeously naughty, she is the epitome of temptation. Brendan Fraser gives a terrific performance as seven characters all wrapped up in one. Elliot Richards is a socially inept computer nerd who is not even very good at being a loser. He tries way too hard to make friends, and he even does the one thing that losers must never, ever do: admitting his crush on a woman who doesn't even know him. This leads to public embarrassment, as I could easily have told the guy, and soon Elliot unwittingly dial's Satan's number by saying he would give anything to have Alison Gardner (Frances O'Connor) in his life. Elizabeth Hurley looks nothing at all like the traditional devil, but she has comparatively little trouble convincing Elliot of her identity and getting him to sell his soul in exchange for seven wishes; I mean, what guy wouldn't give in to the seductive delights of Elizabeth Hurley?
You really have to be specific when you are making wishes, as Elliot soon learns as a series of fantasies fulfilled quickly fall through: fame, power, and marriage to Allison is dangerous as well as unfulfilling, the life of an unbelievable star athlete comes with its own little problem (wink, wink), intelligence and savoir faire misses the mark, and becoming the most sensitive man on earth is quite simply a big mistake.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite entertaining and unpredictable 4 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is about a guy who's so unpopluar with everyone around him, until the day he meets a mysterious woman, who claims to be the devil. She is willing to grand him 7 wishes, in return for his soul, and this is an offer he can't refuse. But it seems he's forgotten the old saying 'be careful what you wish for' and things just don't quite go the way he planned. A funny movie, not too similar to any other movies I've seen. The things I like the most about this movie, are the funny scenes, and the unpredictable story. You just can't predict what happens next in the movie, since it's quite unrealistic, in a good way. You shouldn't miss out on this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Movie- Worth Watching 19 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD in a 'buy one get one free' deal, so I expected it to be complete pap. But, it's not.
Some of the situations are very funny (especially the scene where Fraser is a writer)- and you just can't help but laugh. However, at the same time, there are some scenes that start off funny and just get so over-done that you get a tad bit bored.
But the performance from the stars is, I think, overall very good. Brendan Fraser is very comic in his various states (and hairstyles), and makes you giggle.
And, suprisingly enough, so does Liz Hurley. I thought very little of her performances before (also of her films ie- Austin Powers), but in this she is very purswasive. Unlike Fraser at times, Hurley is not too silly. She keeps her accent and character the whole way through.
I especially like the relationship between her and Fraser; they had good chemistry.
So, all in all, this movie is fun- and is to be taken (very) lightly. I reccommend watching before buying, though!
