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
The mix of real-time and greatly sped-up shots of things such as clouds, traffic, and people in subway stations at the beginning and end of the film was previously used in the non-narrative film Baraka (1992). See more »
(at around 1h 8 mins) When Elliot is in 1865 as President Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth yells "Sic Semper Tyrannus" before he fires the gun. In history, it records John Wilkes Booth as yelling this after he had shot Lincoln and leaped to the stage below. See more »

The makers of Bedazzled were not out to make a classic comedy,they were simply trying to make us laugh.Their mission was a successful one.Bedazzled is full of laughs and great character acting by Brendan Fraser and Frances O'Connor.After many forgettable roles in several forgettable films,Brendan Fraser has really graduated into one of cinemas' big time players in just the last couple of years.As I said,Bedazzled will probably not go down as a comedy classic,it's just your basic comedy filled with laughs from start to finish,and that's good enough for me.It would be a worthy addition to the comedy section of anyone's home library.Thumbs up!
