Trivia

While the Devil and Elliot are walking through the parking lot just after meeting, you can see the devil dressed in snakeskin holding a bitten red apple representing Adam and Eve. See more »

Goofs

When Elliot arrives at the nightclub "DV8" the building is shadowed by the western most portion of the San Francisco Bay bridge as well as an Oil refinery. There are no oil refineries anywhere on the San Francisco peninsula and the location in relation to the S.F bay bridge would place it at the Embarcadero BART station/ferry building. The closest Oil refinery in proximity to San Francisco is about 20 miles away in Richmond. The club appears to be located near the Shell oil refinery in Richmond with an image of the Bay bridge spliced in for effect. See more »

A comedy with warmth, wit, and style
26 January 2006 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I originally saw this movie because it stars Brendan Fraser, an actor who can't seem to make a bad movie, and often makes great movies, such as "Blast From the Past".

The big surprise was Elizabeth Hurley. As certain as Vivien Leigh was meant to play Scarlett O'Hara, no one could have done a better job playing The Devil...in this case a sly, brilliantly cunning, sexy devil who playfully torments Brendan by dooming each of his wishes with unintended, nasty surprises. She effortlessly leads him along like a puppy dog on a leash.

Besides her comedic wit, (and some clever writing) I would be remiss not to mention that Elizabeth Hurley looks perfect, absolutely perfect, in every scene. Her clipped, refined British accent is the aural equivalent of a film shot on Kodachrome.

Bedazzled exudes a positive, good-natured warmth, and is proof that comedy doesn't have to depend on silly sophomoric antics, pratfalls, or foul language.

ADDENDUM January 10, 2008. After two years, I have no idea if anyone has ever read this review. Even if you don't like it, please give me a thumbs up or thumbs down, just to let me know someone read it.
