At 16 minutes in, when Bradley Brinkman is introduced to Skeet Mecklenberg, look for Brad Pitt as an extra seated in a beach chair behind Skeet. He's in blue and white striped shorts seated next to a blonde girl in a white string bikini.See more »
Factual errors: At one point the devil says that Labor Day is Hitler's Birthday. Labor Day is celebrated on the first Monday in September and Hitler's birthday is April 20th - but then it was the Devil who said it, so maybe he was lying.See more »

Bland, predictable comedy., 26 June 2001
Author: gridoon

Potentially interesting premise (a comic variation, of sorts, on the Faust legend) is given a bland, somewhat rushed treatment, and turned into an ordinary, predictable movie that takes itself too seriously near the end. James Coco doesn't make a particularly entertaining Devil, and his various disguises do almost nothing for the film. (*1/2)
