Elliot Richardson, suicidal techno geek, is given seven wishes to turn his life around when he meets up with a very seductive Satan. The catch: his soul. Some of his wishes include a 7 foot basketball star, a rock star, and a hamburger.

If "Bedazzled" has a fatal flaw it's that the screenplay doesn't do any work to escalate the stakes as Brendan Fraser hops from one wish fulfillment scenario to the next - but the joy, the enduring pleasure of this movie is the chance to see Fraser in a kaleidoscopic, Robin Williams-esque array of roles, from Columbian drug dealer to the most sensitive man in the world. Fraser and Elizabeth Hurley are a delight.
Wow, how much things change in such a short time. I can't imagine a movie being made today where a one of the bigger jokes is a man turns down a wish where he is extremely accomplished, intelligent, rich, and respected because he was made to be gay in the same wish...
¡HOLA! ¡MUCHO GUSTO! ¡ME LLAMO ELLIOT!
Hola, Juan. Hola, Esteban. ¿Dónde está la biblioteca?
Esta es la casa de mi tía. No, gracias, soy alérgico a los crustáceos.
HA! This movie is not great, but it's FUNNY!
