Trivia

There is a deleted scene that can be seen on the DVD, which shows Elliot using one of his wishes to become a rock star, playing in a metal band and using a British accent. It was cut out because of images of drug use (Elliot takes a bong hit on stage and Alison tries to kill herself by swallowing pills), foul language (Elliot says a certain four-letter word a number of times), and sexual content (Elliot and Alison start to have sex right in the back room). It can be accessed on the DVD by going to the second Special Features page, highlighting the top choice, and clicking right. A devil on Elizabeth Hurley's shoulder should light up. See more »

Goofs

During the drug lord fantasy, one of Elliot's random outbursts upon discovering that he can in fact speak Spanish is "Mucho gusto!" The subtitles translate this as "I like it very much," but this phrase is actually an idiom that means "Nice to meet you." ("I like it very much" would be "Me gusta mucho!") See more »

Not Like The Original, But Pleasant Enough
20 October 2000 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

The 1967 original, starring Dudley Moor and Peter Cook and directed by Stanley Donen was a droll dark comedy that bombed when it was first released to theatres but has developed a very strong cult following over the years. This 2000 version, directed by Harold Ramis is not so much a remake as a latter-day re-imagining of the story. Aside from the basic premise, the two films share little else in common. This new version is a wacky, fast-paced farce that makes up in some giddily amusing moments what it lacks in true wickedness.

Brendan Fraser is perfectly cast as the hapless computer tech who makes a deal with Satan; granted seven wishes in exchange for eventual possession of his soul, we witness each wish he makes as his life becomes a series of colorful and very funny misadventures. Some first-rate make-up and special effects transform Fraser and his world every time he changes wishes. Elizabeth Hurley is extremely fetching and quite likable as the embodiment of Satan, although I wish she'd showed a bit more evilness than glee in her characterization.

All in all, a very entertaining movie that, of course, leaves the door open for a sequel. Bring it on!
