Trivia

The devil's club, DV8, is the same building used in Fight Club as Lou's Diner. Bedazzled is set in San Francisco, where as it is never specified in the movie where Fight Club is set. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[singing to Alison as sensitive guy]
Elliot Richards: Mayo-nayo-naise. Swimming by the sandy shore, dancing up among the waves, dolphin, dolphin I adore everything you are. You're so much more than a fish to me, my playful friend beneath the sea.
[making dolphin noise]
Elliot Richards: ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, ee, ee.

A comedy with warmth, wit, and style
26 January 2006 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I originally saw this movie because it stars Brendan Fraser, an actor who can't seem to make a bad movie, and often makes great movies, such as "Blast From the Past".

The big surprise was Elizabeth Hurley. As certain as Vivien Leigh was meant to play Scarlett O'Hara, no one could have done a better job playing The Devil...in this case a sly, brilliantly cunning, sexy devil who playfully torments Brendan by dooming each of his wishes with unintended, nasty surprises. She effortlessly leads him along like a puppy dog on a leash.

Besides her comedic wit, (and some clever writing) I would be remiss not to mention that Elizabeth Hurley looks perfect, absolutely perfect, in every scene. Her clipped, refined British accent is the aural equivalent of a film shot on Kodachrome.

Bedazzled exudes a positive, good-natured warmth, and is proof that comedy doesn't have to depend on silly sophomoric antics, pratfalls, or foul language.

ADDENDUM January 10, 2008. After two years, I have no idea if anyone has ever read this review. Even if you don't like it, please give me a thumbs up or thumbs down, just to let me know someone read it.
