[[caption-width-right:250:Because Elizabeth Hurley is more appealing than Peter Cook.]]

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.

!This 2000 film contains examples of:

* TwentyPercentMoreAwesome: "Ah... well, you know, you go out there and you give a 110%, and you wanna play good, and, you know, you hope you play good... I think we played pretty good tonight!"
* ActingForTwo: Frances O'Connor.
* AffablyEvil: The Devil. Sure, she's out for Elliot's soul, but she's generally friendly and sympathetic to him most of the time. Even after [[spoiler:he nullifies their contract and saves himself]], she's still polite and cordial before seeing him off.
* AnticlimaxCut: After Elliot wishes for a Big Mac and a coke. Cut to... the bus ride, and [=McDonald's=] counter.
* ArtisticLicenseMusic: Brendan Fraser is playing guitar during one of the fantasies, and he has his hand above the capo.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In some cases, the consequences are arbitrary. Consider:
** First wish: to be rich and powerful. He becomes a Colombian drug lord.
** Second wish: to be the most emotionally sensitive man in the world. He cries over everything.
** Third wish: a superstar athlete and a ChickMagnet. He becomes an awesome basketball player [[DumbMuscle with no brain]] and a TeenyWeenie.
** Fourth wish: intelligent, charming and handsome and wanted Allison to fall in love with him. Making him gay was arbitrary.
** Wished to be the President. He becomes [[UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln Abe Lincoln]] on the day of his assassination.
** [[spoiler: What ended up being considered his actual first wish was granted before he even signed the contract.]]
** But the seventh wish makes up for everything [[spoiler: literally, it turns out]].
*** To sum the whole thing up: Satan isn't even a LiteralGenie, she just [[JackassGenie gets to screw up Elliot's wishes however she wants]].
* BigRedDevil: In order to convince Elliot that she is the real deal, the Devil briefly transforms into a more typical Western portrayal of Satan with horns, red skin, and a goatee, stating that she dislikes it because "it's so trick-or-treat."
** Later, in an attempt to intimidate Elliot into making his final wish, she transforms herself into a [[OneWingedAngel large, demonic Chernabog-like beast]]. [[spoiler:It turns out they were just special effects.]]
* BrandX: For one of his wishes, Elliot ends up playing profession basketball for the "Diablos". The logo also appears as a sticker in his cubicle at work.
* CampGay: Combine with a wish gone wrong, and you've got yourself a very funny moment.
* CaptionHumor: The opening sequence.
* TheCartel: His first wish is to be rich and powerful. So he becomes Pablo Escobar. And his wife hates him. Hey, he said he wanted to be ''married''. [[LiteralGenie He never said she had to ''love'' him]].
* [[CurseEscapeClause Deal Escape Clause]]: [[spoiler: Performing one selfless wish or act while under contract voids it.]]
* DeletedScene: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMOz9pjMQy0 This one]] where he wishes to be a rock star a la OzzyOsbourne.
* DevilButNoGod: Referenced early on.
-->'''Devil:''' Yes, there's a God.\\
'''Elliot:''' Really? What's he like?\\
'''Devil:''' Y'know, you'd think meeting ''THE DEVIL'' would be interesting enough, but no, all they want to talk about is Him. Like He's so bloody fascinating.\\
'''Elliot:''' So He's a man.\\
'''Devil:''' Yeah. Most men think they're God. This one just happens to be right.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler: Even after everything he's gone through, Elliot finds out Allison was already dating. It turns out to be alright though as the experience taught Elliot about himself and gives him a confidence boost.]]
** [[spoiler: He did get a different girl though...Who looks ''[[ActingForTwo exactly like Allison]].'']]
** It's implied that [[spoiler:his last wish fixed Allison's bad relationship, as it's mentioned in the beginning that she just broke up with her boyfriend]].
* DivineRaceLift: God is black, the Devil is a woman.
* DumbJock: What Elliot turns into when he wishes to become a star NBA player.
* EvilBrit: Liz Hurley is NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent. Given that the first movie was British, and [[ForeignFanservice it helps]] [[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench the sexiness]], justified.
* EvilIsPetty: In between wishes, the Devil gives people parking fines, tells high school kids not to bother with their studies because they were boring, swaps medication for Tic Tacs, and cheats at chess with God.
* EvilLawyerJoke: Apparently, the Devil has clients.
* FermatsLastTheorem: Erased by Satan at the all-boys' boarding school.
* FlatEarthAtheist: Odd example during the fourth wish. Secular humanism may be "yummy", but Elliot of all people should know that at least in the film's reality, humanity ''isn't'' alone.
** It's in-character for what he is then: an effete pseudo-intellectual.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: Elliot starts out as a Type 2 and 6 in his group of co-worker "friends", all of whom dislike him as annoying and often try to ditch him or make fun of him behind his back but at the same time, are not cruel enough to outright tell him to go away.
* GenderFlip: The Devil is recast as Elizabeth Hurley.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar \ BilingualBonus: As a drug lord, Elliot yells "hijos de puta!", which is translated as "You guys suck!". It ''really'' means "You sons of whores!"
* GodKartingWithBeelzebub: The last we see of God and the Devil is the two of them playing chess in the park.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: When Elliot meets Nicole, he is dumbstruck by the fact that [[spoiler:she looks exactly like Allison but is a brunette]]. Nicole, seeing that he doesn't reply, starts asking him in various languages if he speaks English... except French. For some reason, she asks in French if he speaks American.
* GratuitousRussian: Besides being a Colombian drug lord, Elliot suddenly realizes he speaks fluent (well, [[FauxFluency Faux Fluent]]) Russian. When he does, he curses in Russian. That last part is not subtitled.
* GratuitousSpanish: The first wish. Elliot even reacts with regular StockPhrases from Spanish class.
* GreekChorus: Elliot's "friends" reappear as different characters in each wish.
* HotAsHell: The Devil.
-->"Prince of Darkness. Well, ''princess.''"
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: At the start of the movie, Elliot's ham-fisted efforts to befriend his co-workers are ''painful'' to watch.
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Elliot's last wish [[spoiler: for Allison to live a happy life.]]
* JackassGenie: The Devil fits the trope perfectly, except that she's obviously not a Genie.
* LadyInRed: How the Devil first presents herself to Elliot.
* LargeHam: Fraser got a chance to show off how hammish he can be, particularly during the second wish.
* MagicalNegro: [[spoiler:{{God}}, apparently. He appears to Elliot in the prison cell and gives him a heartfelt speech which strengthens Elliot's resolve when the man was about to give up on everything.]]
* {{Meganekko}}: The Devil when she portrays a HotTeacher.
* MsFanservice: The producers got their money's worth from Hurley (see SexyWhateverOutfit below).
* MundaneWish: [[spoiler:The Big Mac and large Coke.]]
* OneWingedAngel: The Devil does this when she attempts to scare Elliot towards the end, first becoming a [[BigRedDevil large horned-monster]] and then [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever a giant bikini-clad version of herself]], both times with a large pitchfork.
* TheRemake: More of a Reimagining really, taking the basic idea of a loser guy in love with an oblivious beauty being offered wishes by Satan, and then going its own way with it.
* ReplacementLoveInterest: [[spoiler:After Elliot chats with Alison and learns she has a boyfriend, he goes home and runs into his new neighbor Nicole... played by the same actress. {{Lampshaded}} when he asks her, "Do you have a sister?"]]
* SelflessWish: [[spoiler:Elliot uses his seventh wish to wish for [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy his beloved to be happy]].]]
* SexyWhateverOutfit: Every time the Devil reappears to Elliot after one of his wishes, she wears a different {{Fanservice}} outfit, usually as the object of desire in various stock male sexual fantasies:
** After his Columbian drug lord wish, she is dressed as a [[FairCop sexy policewoman]].
** During his NBA player wish, she is one of the team's [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders cheerleaders]].
** After that wish, she is a [[NaughtyNurseOutfit nurse]] [[HospitalHottie at a hospital]].
** After his next wish, she is a HotTeacher, complete with [[{{Meganekko}} glasses]] and a [[CatholicSchoolgirlsRule short plaid skirt]].
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler: Elliot pining after Allison only in the end to find out she was already dating. But everything works out for him in the end.]]
** But it is implied that [[spoiler:Allison was originally single, and it was Elliot's own wish that she have a happy life which got her back together with her formerly ex-boyfriend or a new one who would help her have the happy life.]]
* ShoutOut: The Devil's dogs during the second wish are named Dudley and Peter after the stars of the first movie.
* SketchComedy: The wish fulfillment segments are like sketches of a ''SaturdayNightLive'' episode.
* StraightGay: Elliot's fourth wish, which was of course completely necessary for that scene to work.
* SympathyForTheDevil: {{Invoked}} by the Devil.
--> '''The Devil:''' "Do you think I enjoy this? I'm stuck in this horrible job for eternity. Everybody hates me. When I try to help someone they turn on me like I'm supposed to be God or something! For your information, my life is a living hell!"
** And, much like you'd expect of the Devil, Hurley does a good job of straddling the line between sincerity and manipulation when she does it.
* TakeThat
-->'''Satan:''' "How would you like to make one simple decision that'll change your life forever?"\\
'''Elliot:''' "Okay, I'm glad Scientology works for you, but..."
** Also:
--->"It's not easy being the BarbraStreisand of Evil."
** The Devil mentions that she has offices in "Purgatory, Hell, and [[PlaceWorseThanDeath Los]] [[HorribleHollywood Angeles]]".
** Early on in the film, the Devil selects San Francisco as the location of her newest victim. Other candidates included the UsefulNotes/VaticanCity (cited to be too hard) and [[TheBigRottenApple New York]] (cited as ''[[NoChallengeEqualsNoSatisfaction too easy]]'').
* TeenyWeenie: Elliot is transformed into a huge sexy basketball player... who has laughably small equipment.
* VanityLicensePlate: The Devil's car has "BAD 1" on its license plate.
