Sensitive Guy Shines

Although Liz Hurley is only as good as expected, Brendon Frazier is great and his characters (particularly the sensitive guy) shine. LOL every time I watch it. Read More

Editors Note
Note BEDAZZLED is a fiery romantic comedy starring Brendan Fraser as Elliot Richards, a bored and boring computer programmer who is in love with Alison Gardner (Frances O'Connor), a lovely coworker who doesn't even know he exists. In a desperate attempt to gain Alison's affections, Brendan naively strikes up a deal with the devil (Elizabeth Hurley), a seductive and wickedly naughty woman who promises Elliot seven wishes in exchange for his soul. The devil does her best to torture Elliot's poor soul, giving him all seven wishes, each of which in some way goes astray. Elliot is in for the ride of his life as the saucy devil transforms him into a Colombian drug lord, a supersensitive pushover, and an NBA star with more brawn than brains as his wishes become manipulated into one outrageous disaster after another. Fraser is an acting tour de force, deftly playing a wide variety of characters using his comic genius and flair for the absurd, while Hurley is at her stylish and seductive best as the haute couture devilish prankster. Together they ignite the screen with wit, charm, and palpable chemistry. Director Harold Ramis (CADDYSHACK, GROUNDHOG DAY) wrote and directed this hilarious remake of the 1967 movie of the same name directed by Stanley Donen that starred Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Raquel Welch, and Eleanor Bron.
Reviews
New York Times "...Outrageous fun....The physical transformations that Mr. Fraser undergoes in each sequence are impressive, but the artistry is in his quick-change performance..." 10/20/2000 p.E25
Total Film "...[A] surprisingly good comedy....[Fraser] shows an almost Carrey-esque versatility here..." 12/01/2000 p.90
Sight and Sound "...Hurley is well suited for BEDAZZLED's genial gags and attacks them with gusto....[Fraser gives] an agreeable everyman performance..." 12/01/2000 p.40
Los Angeles Times "...Fraser turns BEDAZZLED into a successful one-man comedy review..." 10/20/2000 p.C11
