Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
From director Harold Ramis, the man behind such well-liked laugh-generating vehicles as Caddyshack and Groundhog Day, comes Bedazzled, a supposed comedy that doubles as a study in mediocrity. Not only is this film persistently unfunny, but it is consistently uninvolving. To be fair to Ramis, I'm willing to admit that Bedazzled isn't incompetently made - it's just not very entertaining. This is the kind of unremarkable production that will stay with the average viewer for a period of about five seconds after he or she exits the theater. This movie has no staying power, and, outside of Brendan Fraser's easygoing charm, little to recommend it.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Meet Elliot, a well-meaning but socially inept technical-support advisor who's in love with Alison, a female co-worker. Unfortunately she barely knows he's alive. Desperate to gain Alison's affections, Elliot strikes a deal with the Devil — a drop-dead gorgeous woman with, as he'll soon discover, a wicked sense of humor. In exchange for Elliot's soul, the temptress will grant him seven wishes.

To start with, Elliot asks to be rich, powerful and married to Alison. But Elliot quickly learns the hard way to be careful what he wishes for, as he's transformed overnight into a Colombian drug lord.

No problem, he thinks, because he's got six more wishes. How about becoming the "most sensitive man in the world"? Sure, only Elliot ends up a sniveling, driveling fool. A rock and roll superstar ... or a basketball powerhouse? Done! But those, too, lead to more problems than Elliot could have ever imagined. Because the Devil, always a step ahead of him, has dished up hilariously subversive versions of his desires, turning each of Elliot's new lives a living hell.
