  • 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.

    Sight and Sound

    "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."

    "Cook's amusing script and Moore's lively score distinguish the [film]..."
    Film Comment

    "Balancing zany high jinks and deadpan genius, this BEDAZZLED bests its 2000 remake..." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "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."
    New York Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Faust blends with burgers in the twisted morality tale....[This is the superior original..."
