This review is from: Bedazzled [DVD] (DVD)
Possibly Peter Cook's greatest and yet most underated piece of work. Not only is the screenplay utterly delicious, but Cook's portrayal of the Devil incarnate (a.k.a George Spiggott) has to be one of the best cinematic 'Satans' of all time. There are clear undertones of their fiery off-screen relationship, but if don't look too deeply, you will enjoy this film for what it is - a wonderful snapshot of a great comedy partnership at their peak.
This film has not been available to buy for over ten years, elevating it's cult status somewhat. But this is no more than it deserves. Up there with 'Holy Grail' as a true comedy masterpiece.

This film is fabulous.
I watched both this and the remake with my 16 and 11 year old children and we all agree - the original is fabulous and the remake a wash out.
You can keep your Hollwood "revamp" - skip straight to the teamwork, timing and talent of Pete and Dud.
