Cab driver Frank Faust manages to finally scare his girlfriend Jennifer away at the tenth year Highschool reunion. Unfortunately, he never intended to do so. A year later, Frank still has not overcome the problem and tries to commit suicide. At the last Moment, the Devil himself appears and offers him a deal: Frank's soul in exchange for a sinister plot to get Jennifer back. Frank accepts and Mephisto reveals that he is actually Mephisto Jr., and that Frank Faust is a descendant of Doctor Faustus (from the classical play by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe). Therefore, the Mephistos always come to help the Fausts in situations like these. Anyway, Mephisto tries to get Jennifer's attention to focus on Frank by transforming into different local celebrities and showing up on important parties with Faust. Unfortunately, Mephisto Jr. also starts discovering his own sexuality and develops some unpredictable interests, and soon nobody knows what's going on anymore.Written by

It hurt to even give this movie 1 out of 10. I watched this film about an hour ago on SBS and I have to say, it was god awful. Firstly, too many "twists and turns". Secondly, horrible storyline. Why. Why anyone would want to direct and produce or even act in this movie, is beyond me and my posse of movie buffs, quite agree. To give this movie anything beyond a 5 is idiotic and anyone who disagrees... wow, you truly must have the worst taste in film and cinema. I kind of feel dirty even thinking about the movie. If I were to go back in time, I surely would change the channel. My mind and eyes have been soiled. No kudos for the unoriginal storyline.
