There are good, a few bad scenes, and some copying from other films. Brendan is someone here who at first I wondered why he was such an outcast at work, but I started to see why after a few scenes. His co workers are definitely snobs but I started to see that when you're the kind of person who just cannot take a hint, and you keep leeching on to people no matter what they say, they will grow to dislike you. Also true in today's society that if you're always too cheerful and nice all the time, sadly people will start looking at that as bad. You need to show that you can sometimes be grumpy, critical, and a little bit of a jerk occasionally (just not too much) as well as happy and nice to make a whole picture look good to people on the social front. Brendan was also a doormat, and that's not good either.
Brendan meets Elizabeth Hurly at a bar after being scorned by his co workers (seriously, I would've told them to go to hell if they kept treating me like that) and after failing to attract Alison, the girl he's been yearning for who has not been yearning for him back. Hurly is, bum bum bum bum, the devil, with a card to match. We get the whole charade of Brendan not believing her at first, her little visual tricks, and the sample wish, the big mac and coke ("I even had to pay for it", Brendan whined) to start convincing him, then we get the contract and seven wishes speech (of course she doesn't mention then that one of the wishes has already been used up, the big mac and coke. That revelation comes later, with Brendan not taking it too well). Branden gets to work on his wishes and we get the twist of every wish coming with a big problem. There is a definite copying of both the 1960s version of Bedazzled and Twilight zone episode "Man in a bottle". The first wish is wishing to be rich, when is that not someone's first wish in a wishing movie. The Columbian drug lord was a nice touch, the film makers in that scene did a good job making Brendan look like a different kind of person, and taller. The wish has him married to Alison, but her not exactly turning out happy about it and cheating on him to be with suave jerk Raul. Wouldn't any hot Hispanic girl pick Raul over him over Raul. Then Raul takes over the business and orders Brendan killed. Brendan barely escapes out of that wish with his life. The ultra sensitive guy wish scene was hilarious, with the way he cried harder every time he saw that sunset ("when is that darn thing gonna set!?"). This scene (and the ending with Alison ditching the crybaby to hook up with the beach jocks) again goes with my point that a girl will like a nice sensitive guy if he has a limit to it and can sometimes be a bit of a jerk, and tough. I liked the inbetween wishes scenes with Brendan and Hurley. I liked the scene right after the sensitive guy wish with him pointing out to her that he sees how she's ruining his wishes, the lines from Hurly in the scene where she's an exceptionally easygoing teacher, the scene in Alison's bedroom (Hurly to Brendan: "this is a place you would've never seen without my help"), and the scenes where they're arguing about how many wishes are left, and then where they're arguing about the last wish. There were a few not very good scenes though, such as the basketball wish (with Brendan flying through the air like that. Please. And his protrusive sweating was gross. And he says "you gotta give 110%" too many times.), the articulate wealthy guy scene is OK until the ending with the gay partner, and the Abraham Lincoln wish was stupidly made (Brendan looked ridiculous as Lincoln). That president wish was copied from Twilight zone "Man in a bottle" where the main character became Hitler (the character of that episode looked ridiculous as Hitler). There's also a copy from "Oh God, you devil" with Brendan going into the church and wanting to talk to God, the actual person, and then getting in trouble being considered crazy. "Bedazzled" all in all though was OK.
