Trivia

Originally the film was supposed to start production in 1998. However, when Ghostbusters 3 fell through, co-writer Harold Ramis agreed to direct the film and hired his writer on "Analyze This", Peter Tolan to rework Larry Gelbart's script. This however also meant relinquishing his Directing duties on "Galaxy Quest" which was about to start production and be released in 1999. Ramis would stay on the film as one of the films' producers.

The Devil: [Smiling] Right. Okay.
Elliot Richards: Oh, wait! I wish I were the most *emotionally* sensitive man in the world.
The Devil: Damn. I was hoping you wouldn't catch that. I could've had a lot of fun with that one.

Not Like The Original, But Pleasant Enough
20 October 2000 | by G-Man-25See all my reviews

The 1967 original, starring Dudley Moor and Peter Cook and directed by Stanley Donen was a droll dark comedy that bombed when it was first released to theatres but has developed a very strong cult following over the years. This 2000 version, directed by Harold Ramis is not so much a remake as a latter-day re-imagining of the story. Aside from the basic premise, the two films share little else in common. This new version is a wacky, fast-paced farce that makes up in some giddily amusing moments what it lacks in true wickedness.

Brendan Fraser is perfectly cast as the hapless computer tech who makes a deal with Satan; granted seven wishes in exchange for eventual possession of his soul, we witness each wish he makes as his life becomes a series of colorful and very funny misadventures. Some first-rate make-up and special effects transform Fraser and his world every time he changes wishes. Elizabeth Hurley is extremely fetching and quite likable as the embodiment of Satan, although I wish she'd showed a bit more evilness than glee in her characterization.

All in all, a very entertaining movie that, of course, leaves the door open for a sequel. Bring it on!
