Did You Know?

Trivia:
An additional scene shot involved the rich and powerful Elliot giving Allison a diamond ring as a gift. Allison remarks that it is lovely and tosses it away. Elliot later tosses the ring into a fountain in disappointment and servants dive in to retrieve it. This seemed like overkill so it was left out.

Goofs:
Continuity: The sand in his face during the "World's Most Emotionally Sensitive Man" scene.

Quotes:
[after the Devil shows up on Elliot's computer screen]
Elliot Richards: What are you doing here?
The Devil: Just think of me as a computer virus.
Elliot Richards: I think of you as a PLAGUE!



User Review

Fun movie, good comedy.

Rating: 9/10

No, this isn't the best or funniest comedy in the world, but I certainly enjoyed it. There is a fair amount of really good comedy in the film to keep you entertained. ...And of course there's Elizabeth Hurley...need I say more?

The story is a fun one and quite the fantasy, but nonetheless, it's entertaining. While not being anything terribly profound, this film definitely has a point to make, be happy with yourself and only you can make things happen, don't rely on others for your happiness.

The acting in this film is very good. Brendan Fraser struts his acting talent in this film quite nicely, playing virtually 5 or 6 characters throughout the film. Brendan really is a talented actor and should get some notice for his role in this film. Orlando Jones, Paul Adelstein, and Toby Huss also deserve a great deal of notice for their work in this film, all three of them play various types of characters in the film and do it quite nicely. Elizabeth Hurley and her ever-changing wardrobe should be reason enough for any guy to watch this film. She looks nothing short of fantastic in every scene. Frances O'Connor was a nice choice for the part of Alison / Nicole (also playing more than one role very nicely).

All in all, this is a fun, cute movie with some really good comedy. I would recommend this film to anyone that likes those types of film, or is just a fan of one of the actors or director Harold Ramis. I hope you enjoy the film, thanks for reading,

-Chris
