How far will a man go to win the woman he loves? That's the devilish question behind this satirical romantic comedy. Elliot Richards (Brendan Fraser), a low-level white-collar worker, has fallen in love with his co-worker Allison (Frances O'Connor), who barely knows he exists. Desperate to win her love, sad sack Elliot is approached by the Devil (Elizabeth Hurley), who offers him seven wishes in exchange for his soul.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Watchable as she may be, Hurley is not the Devil for this movie."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"So over the top you'll either enjoy it or be bothered and bewildered by it."
‑ Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Charming Fraser Faustian tale with lots of sexual innuendo."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"[Whenever] Hurley disappears, and so does much of the film's energy."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"There's nothing here that's liable to set you pondering metaphysical questions, but Bedazzled is a perfectly reasonable excuse for a none-too-bright Hollywood comedy."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Delivers laughs at a rather more than intermittent rate, and Elizabeth Hurley is a fun devil."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"It is lacking in wickedness. It doesn't smack its lips when it's naughty."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Just another weak vehicle for Fraser."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Decent enough entertainment as written, though many will regret the movie's eleventh-hour detour into pieties."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"entertains on a very shallow level"
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"[Hurley and Fraser] make this film a whole lot better than it should have been."
‑ Paul Clinton (CNN.com), CNN.com
"This is about as simple and uncomplicated you can get, but it isn't trying to do anything beyond providing some quick and easy laughs in a refreshingly heavenly comedy."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Hurley is great fun to watch, a Faustian powerhouse of curves, smoky eyes and big hair who sounds exactly like Jackie Collins doing an imitation of Madonna's pan-European accent. It's creepy, but effective."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"As if by magic, this lowbrow film falls together and works in a charming, goofy way."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"For a comedy about heaven and hell, Bedazzled doesn't make it out of purgatory."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
