Trivia

The math homework that The Devil erases from the blackboard when she is the schoolteacher is Fermat's Last Theorem - Solve for n>2, x^n + y^n = z^n. It was an extremely difficult mathematical problem that was only proved conclusively in the early 1990s, after four hundred years of it stumping the most brilliant mathematical minds in the world. In fact, the theorem states that this equation does not have any solutions. Fermat originally described it in a margin too small to contain his alleged proof. Andrew Wiles did prove it using elliptic curves, a fairly modern mathematical technique. See more »

Fun movie, good comedy.
8 February 2003 | by (Escondido, California, USA) – See all my reviews

No, this isn't the best or funniest comedy in the world, but I certainly enjoyed it. There is a fair amount of really good comedy in the film to keep you entertained. ...And of course there's Elizabeth Hurley...need I say more?

The story is a fun one and quite the fantasy, but nonetheless, it's entertaining. While not being anything terribly profound, this film definitely has a point to make, be happy with yourself and only you can make things happen, don't rely on others for your happiness.

The acting in this film is very good. Brendan Fraser struts his acting talent in this film quite nicely, playing virtually 5 or 6 characters throughout the film. Brendan really is a talented actor and should get some notice for his role in this film. Orlando Jones, Paul Adelstein, and Toby Huss also deserve a great deal of notice for their work in this film, all three of them play various types of characters in the film and do it quite nicely. Elizabeth Hurley and her ever-changing wardrobe should be reason enough for any guy to watch this film. She looks nothing short of fantastic in every scene. Frances O'Connor was a nice choice for the part of Alison / Nicole (also playing more than one role very nicely).

All in all, this is a fun, cute movie with some really good comedy. I would recommend this film to anyone that likes those types of film, or is just a fan of one of the actors or director Harold Ramis. I hope you enjoy the film, thanks for reading,

-Chris
