"BEDAZZLED remains fresh and funny, with some sharply observed set pieces."
Uncut - 08/01/2005
"It's Pete 'n' Dud's most perfectly realised project....BEDAZZLED is Bron's movie as much as Cook and Moore's. Nobody does gauche and gormless better."
Film Comment - 03/01/2007
"Cook's amusing script and Moore's lively score distinguish the [film]..."
Entertainment Weekly - 04/13/2007
"Balancing zany high jinks and deadpan genius, this BEDAZZLED bests its 2000 remake..." -- Grade: B+
New York Times - 04/18/2007
"Mr. Cook, who wrote the screenplay, endlessly spouts quotable lines with a dry, absurdist quality that clearly left an impression on the up-and-coming humorists who later became the Monty Python troupe."
USA Today - 04/06/2007
3 stars out of 4 -- "Faust blends with burgers in the twisted morality tale....[This is the superior original..."
Starring the comedy team of Dudley Moore and Peter Cook, BEDAZZLED puts a comic and sacrilegious twist on the Faust legend when a short-order cook named Stanley (Moore) who is in love with an oblivious waitress agrees to give his soul to the devil (Cook) in exchange for seven wishes. But the devil has a warped sense of humor, and Stanley's wishes never turn out the way he expects. As his chance to win the waitress's heart seems to recede further and further away, Stanley's wishes become stranger and more desperate.
Though one of many comic films based on Faust, BEDAZZLED stands head and shoulders above the rest with its witty and intelligent screenplay by Peter Cook, hilarious performances by Moore and Cook that demonstrate just why they were such a marvelous comic duo, and the light but keen touch of director Stanley Donen.
All that a poor short-order cook would like is the love of a waitress who has won his heart. Only it seems she's not interested. Just as he has abandoned all hope and is ready to end his life, in steps a man with the innocent-sounding name of George Spiggot...but who is better known by such other monikers as Lucifer, Mephistopheles, and the Devil. George has an offer too good to refuse: He's ready to grant seven wishes. And all he wants in return is the cook's soul....
