Elliot Richardson, a socially awkward IT worker, is given seven wishes to get the girl of his dreams when he meets up with a very seductive Satan. The catch: his soul. Some of his wishes include being a 7 foot basketball star, a wealthy, powerful man, and a sensitive caring guy. But, as could be expected, the Devil must put her own little twist on each his fantasies. Written by
An additional scene shot involved the rich and powerful Elliot giving Allison a diamond ring as a gift. Allison remarks that it is lovely and tosses it away. Elliot later tosses the ring into a fountain in disappointment and servants dive in to retrieve it. This seemed like overkill so it was left out. See more »
(at around 50 mins) When Elliot first comes out to greet the fans in the basketball game, someone manages to pass through his (obviously composited) leg. See more »
Hurley and O'Connor in the same movie? There must be a God!
"Bedazzled" tells of a tech support geek (need I say more?) who sells his soul to the devil (Hurley) for seven wishes which he attempts to use to get close to a girl at work (O'Connor). The flick is a situational comedy which takes the audience on a fun ride as Fraser's wishes turn him into one exaggerated comic-book-type caricature after another. A cute flick sans slapstick, pratfalls, and jokes, "Bedazzled" offers lots of outrageous situations, some sentimental moments, and a whiff of philosophy. A fun watch with a cute ending, lots of eye candy for the guys, and Fraser doing what he does best playing a big, naive, smiling guy.
