Elliot Richards, 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
In the basketball game, the name on the opposing team's jerseys is Shirts. See more »
(at around 27 mins) 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 »
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.
