BEDAZZLED (2000) ***

Brendan Fraser wants Frances O’Connor to love him so much that he sells his soul to the sultry devil (Elizabeth Hurley) who gives him seven wishes to impress her.  The best gags involve Fraser becoming a Scarface-esque drug dealer and a big-time basketball player.  The 1967 British comedy classic didn’t necessarily need to be remade, but Fraser and Hurley make a great team and director Harold Ramis, working in Groundhog Day mode, make this an enjoyable comedy.  Hurley, who wears a different insanely hot outfit in every scene, makes a fine comedienne and I’d be more than happy to sell her my soul any day.
