Pete and Dud meet the devil in California - and she's English
6 April 2002 | by Philby-3See all my reviews

The Faust legend is a robust story. Although selling one's soul to the Devil is serious stuff, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore managed to make a light-hearted movie of it in 'Bedazzled' back in the swinging sixties. Here, a featherweight Hollywood director Harold Ramis ('Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters', Groundhog Day') has remade it, shifting the location from London to San Francisco. However an English actor, Elizabeth Hurley, still plays the Devil , this time tempting a nerdish Brendan Fraser.

The story is a collection of linked episodes as Brendan tries out various fantasies, which all come with a catch eg 'rich and powerful?' Try Columbian drug lord. With each wish he pursues his fellow worker Alison, (Frances O'Connor) whom he has admired from afar for years, but always something goes wrong. Altruism saves the day, and the Devil is vanquished, but I think it would have been a lot more fun if Brendan had gone off with her (the Devil that is) instead.

Elizabeth Hurley is not a great actor (Joanna Lumley would have been much better) but this part suits her fairly well. She plays it like a cruise director with a limited range of emotions, but up front enough to be engaging. The part is almost too big for her and she doesn't have the support of Pride, Lust, Avarice and the rest as Peter Cook did in the 1967 film. Brendan Fraser is a fine actor with a good range and does the cameos required here with considerable skill.

This film is pretty light, frothy and forgettable, but once or twice the voice of Pete and Dud comes thought the script to reminds us that those consummate comics had a tip or two about life and living. Your soul may not be yours to sell, but Heaven and Hell are here on earth, and where you go is largely up to you. Alas, Pete and Dud are gone, but their work still has the power to amuse. This is a pretty flabby re-make, but Hurley and Fraser are effective and some of the comic spirit is still there.
