The [[TheRemake remake]] of ''Film/{{Bedazzled 1967}}'', released in 2000 starring Creator/BrendanFraser and Elizabeth Hurley.

In this version, Elliot Richards (Fraser) is a geeky and friendless office drone who is in love with beautiful co-worker Alison (Frances O'Connor), but is too shy to act on his feelings. After being ditched at a bar by his "friends", Elliot runs into a beautiful woman (Elizabeth Hurley) who tells him that she's [[{{Satan}} the Devil]] and offers him seven wishes in return for his soul. While obviously hesitant, he accepts in the hopes of using his wishes to make him into the perfect man for Alison; HilarityEnsues.

* CheatersNeverProsper: The Devil cheats at chess; [[{{God}} his opponent]] catches her in the act.



* TheDevilIsALoser: And she has nobody to blame but herself.
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler:The Devil does this to intimidate Elliot into making his last wish. Unfortunately - for her - it causes him to make the wish that renders the contract void.]]



* GracefulLoser: [[spoiler:The Devil, oddly enough. After being forced to void the contract, she gives Elliot some sound advice about free will, and they leave on good terms.]]



* JackassGenie: The Devil fits the trope perfectly, except that she's obviously not a Genie.

* JackassGenie: The Devil fits the trope perfectly, except that she's obviously not a Genie. Although, in this case it turns out worse for ''her'' than it does for him.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The Devil purposely twists Elliot's wishes so they turn out bad for him; which leads to him questioning his identity and eventually, making the selfless wish.


Added DiffLines:

* ReadTheFinePrint: Oddly enough, this is one case where the fine print in a Faustian contract works in the beneficiary's favor. The fine print contains the escape clause that says the contract becomes void if he makes a selfless wish.

* MedicationTampering: One of the Devil's [[EvilIsPetty random acts of petty evil]] is to exchange all of the medicines that are being readied to hand out to patients in a hospital with candies. One of the changes that are explicitly mentioned is that of someone's anti-psychotics being replaced with Tic-Tacs.
