Bedazzled Synopsis - Bedazzled is the story of Stanley Moon, a short order cook (a very short one). He is so infatuated with the waitress at the Wimpy Bar where he works, that when he is thwarted in his efforts to woo her he decides to end his life. Just in time he is saved by the Devil in the guise of Mr George Spiggott, who offers to buy his soul from him in return for seven wishes. Stanley agrees and jumps into the wishes straight away, but all too soon its clear that Mr Spiggott will try and trick him out of his happiness. Can Stanley find happiness before the Devil has a chance to trick him out of all of his wishes.

Review of Bedazzled - Bedazzled is an incredibly fun film which immensely suited the Cook / Moore partnership. Given Peter Cook's lack of depth in acting, this role was ideally suited to him, as it is basically a chain of sketches based around the seven deadly sins stitched into a film. It is a very well thought out script and is both hilarious and fascinating throughout.

Avoid the 1990's remake of this film with Elizabeth Hurley (!) like the plague.

The reasons I recommend Bedazzled are: 1. This the only film that Peter Cook made that helped show his comic genius. 2. A fantastic script. 3. A hugely funny and inventive film throughout.
