A little more script work, at the very least, should have gone into the manufacture of the black comedy Bedazzled.

There's no real dazzle in Bedazzled, though you may be befuddled trying to figure out why anyone was compelled to make the effort.
Mike Clark — USA Today
Brendan Fraser is one funny, mixed-up guy. And as Ms. Lucifer, the new scourge of Fraser's life, Elizabeth Hurley crackles with sexy sarcasm.
Desson Thomson — Washington Post
Delivers laughs at a rather more than intermittent rate, and Elizabeth Hurley is a fun devil.
Jay Carr — Boston Globe
A lively, generally amusing remake.
Dean Essner — Houston Chronicle
Tom Maurstad — Dallas Morning News
It is lacking in wickedness. It doesn't smack its lips when it's naughty.
Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times
Watchable as she may be, Hurley is not the Devil for this movie.
Michael Wilmington — Chicago Tribune
A comedy that is weak even by today's humble standards, and pitiful when measured against the Cook-Moore version.
Desmond Ryan — Philadelphia Inquirer
It offers a diverting couple of hours at the movies.
Susan Stark — Detroit News
Much of the writing is genuinely clever, and the really big laughs are ignited with crowd-pleasing frequency.
Joe Leydon — Variety
It's involving -- as an OK date movie -- primarily because of a tour de force as Elliot's multiple selves by Brendan Fraser.
Lou Lumenick — New York Post
By the end of the movie, I wasn't so much bedazzled as bedraggled.
Jay Boyar — Orlando Sentinel
Most of these sketches devolve -- with apologies to the esteemed Mr. Darwin -- into schoolyard sniggering as fast as drool runs down a chin.
Geoff Pevere — Toronto Star
The new writing team has dumbed-down the script to such an extent that the jokes sound like rejects from a Farrelly brothers comedy.
John Hartl — Film.com
What the film doesn't have, ironically, is a soul.

Dean Essner — Globe and Mail
I think retooling Bedazzled relies most significantly on getting just the right devil, and you couldn't come up with a more perfect Luciferess than Elizabeth Hurley.
Stephanie Zacharek — Salon.com
Not only is this film persistently unfunny, but it is consistently uninvolving.
