      William R. P Eleanor Bron not so hot 🙁 Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/24/23 Full Review Jan P I suppose it's too smart for some, but I love his film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Ed M Very clever movie. cook and Moore are great. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/02/22 Full Review robert p Much better than the second movie!!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of my all-time favorite movies. The 2000 remake did a nice job, but Peter Cook definitely plays a better Devil. This is very much a "be careful for what you wish for" film. The Genie is Satan, but also your only friend once the comedic torture begins. As soon as the sloppily noosed and suicidally forlorn Stanley Moon (Dudley Moore) starts wishing for ways to get romantic with his co-worker, we see how the Devil makes that all backfire; from Moon being accused of date rape to him being cuckolded. Moon keeps wishing and tries to control the outcome with more specific wishes, only to have the Devil show him the door he left open. My favorite scene is when Moon becomes a pop star, and bursts on to the stage singing "LOVE ME!" to the screams of obsessed teens only to be thwarted by the Devil's latest pop sensation who is the complete opposite of such desperate cries for attention. The Devil is very much a monotone joyless-Joy Division-like Ian Curtis*, who sings the theme song: "I don't love you (You plug me in) Leave me alone (You switch me off) I'm self contained (You let me off) Just go away I'm bedazzled..." The Devil knows the fickle teen audience responds more to mysterious alienation than desperate cries for love, and it is so well done, you don't think the movie can go anywhere else...that is, until Moon becomes a trampolining Nun. Beautifully shot, constructed and conceived, I still go back to this one every couple of years I enjoy watching it so much. *Who would've been the sixties equivalent of Ian Curtis? Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member One of my all time faves! Very witty and original. A brilliant farce that's also a satire.

      Dave Kehr Chicago Reader The film is bright, inventive, and pointed -- one of the finest and funniest comedies of the 60s. Sep 27, 2022 Full Review Bosley Crowther New York Times Maybe the brand of British banter and buffoonery that Peter Cook and Dudley Moore bombard us with in Stanley Donen's Bedazzled would be very funny if it came in small bursts at not too frequent intervals in an expansive musical comedy or revue. Sep 15, 2022 Full Review Charles Champlin Los Angeles Times Cook and Moore perform wittily and engagingly but you do wish that Donen or someone had, at a point, saved them from themselves. It gives deviltry a bad name. Sep 15, 2022 Full Review Penelope Mortimer Observer (UK) Stanley Donen makes the whole amateur bag of tricks look lovely, which somehow makes it worse. Messrs Cook and Moore, both experts on an 18-inch screen, have patently sold their souls to the devil. Sep 15, 2022 Full Review Jack Helsel Philadelphia Daily News Bedazzled is witty and well done, pardon the pun, a helluva funny adult comedy. Sep 15, 2022 Full Review Stanley Eichelbaum San Francisco Examiner Disregard the shortcomings of Bedazzled and enjoy it for what it is -- a light, frothy entertainment done with great verve and charm.
