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
Deena Appel, the film's costume designer was highly recommend by Elizabeth Hurley to Director Harold Ramis to work on the film after having worked with her on both Austin Powers films she had been in and since her character required an extensive and varied wardrobe, she felt Appel was the perfect choice.

In the basketball fantasy the score of the game is 135-85, with Elliot scoring 104 points, yet he also recorded 32 assists, which would make the score be more than the 135, it would be at least 168. 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.
