Goofs

The basketball game ended with a score of 135 to 85 in the Diablos favor. Elliot Richards accounted for 104 of these points according to his end game stats, and also had 32 assists, which is impossible as it is already more than the 31 points attributed by the other teammates. Also factor in that assists are earned during normal game progression, where you can only score 2 or 3 points per score. See more »

'George Of The Jungle' Meets Satan
28 January 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Here's a fun film with a number of good laughs. It is stupid? Yeah, in parts. Is the theology sound? Hardly, but there was more truth than fiction uttered in this film, believe it or not. Is the Devil made to look attractive? Well, yeah, I'd say Elizabeth Hurley is pretty attractive!

The beginning is the best part of the film, and the end - with a dumb New Age message - is the worst. Along the way, the dumb Brendan Fraser's "Elliott Richards" learns some valuable lessons in his battle with the Devil. For selling his soul, so to speak, he gets seven wishes and we witness how he handles, or mishandles, these wishes. Much of it is pretty funny. Fraser is not a bad. He can play these goofy roles (i.e. "George Of The Jungle" and he can get serious and be effective, too, as in "The Quiet American.")

Overall, it's good lightweight entertainment. Don't expect much, and you'll be pleasantly surprised. At least, that's the way I found it.
