Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This movie may not leave you bedazzled, but it will leave you happy. The classic English comedy written in 1967 by Peter Cook and starring Cook and Dudley Moore has been Americanized; in other words, BEDAZZLED has less deadpan humor, sly wit, and existential comedy and more jokes about penis size. But it is still delicious fun.

Fraser is wonderful, almost unrecognizable as he moves from sensitive poet to basketball superstar. Hurley may not be up to the acting challenge, but she looks like a million bucks in a series of hilarous get-ups, and she has that most important attribute of a movie bad guy -- an English accent. The rest of the cast does not have much to do beyond wardrobe switches as they play different roles in each scenario, but Frances O'Connor (Allison) has a great smile and Orlando Jones (of The Replacements) has a couple of good moments. Gabriel Casseus makes a strong impression as someone who gives Elliot some good advice.
