Shortcut to Happiness (The Devil and Daniel Webster)
Set in contemporary New York's literary world, this is a re-telling of the classic fable of a man who sells his soul to the devil for fame and fortune and ultimately decides that he wants to get it back. Jabez Stone, a down and out writer, exchanges his soul for a successful literary career, but soon realizes it was a mistake. Jabez must enlist the help of Daniel Webster in order to win his soul back from the Devil.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has to be seen to be believed -- a very rare case of a movie that's such an utter train wreck you can't stop watching."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Awkwardly paced, indifferently acted and laughably hokey."
‑ Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly
"Baldwin, like so many thesp-helmers, lacks an instinctive sense of how to place and move the camera."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"Much of the fault can be distributed to Hewitt's performance which has neither the zing nor the menace to effectively sell us that she has any credible advantage over heavyweights like Baldwin and Hopkins."
‑ Erik Childress,
