The Devil's never been so hot or hilarious! Brendan Fraser is a hapless, love-starved computer technician who falls prey to sinfully sexy Elizabeth Hurley when he agress to sell her his soul in exchange for seven wishes. But the sly Princess of Darkness has more than a few tricks up her... sleeve. And before you can say Fire and Brimstone, Elliot's life becomes a hysterical hell on earth.

Critics Consensus: Though it has its funny moments, this remake is essentially a one-joke movie with too many flat spots.

Delivers laughs at a rather more than intermittent rate, and Elizabeth Hurley is a fun devil.

Common Sense Says
Charming Fraser Faustian tale with lots of sexual innuendo.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that playful sexual innuendo is a major component of this movie. There are lots of references to penis size, some comic depiction of homosexuality, and scenes in which characters flash their private parts off camera. Many of the women are seen in tight, revealing clothing throughout, including the female “devil” who displays her “attributes” in dozens of clinging, scanty outfits. A couple of action sequences are played for humor with gunplay, car crashes, and falls that result in no injury or death. Hell is depicted as a vast party scene complete with fire and brimstone. There’s occasional swearing and potty language as well as some social drinking. One series of scenes finds the hero unwittingly involved in cocaine distribution in South America.
