REVIEWS

Review by Mike Mixer (posted on 28-Jul-2009)

I manged to catch this movie a few years ago and I wish I had recorded it. Peter Cook makes an absolutely evil Devil without being obviously hurtful. There are always little things he is doing in a scene as busywork that represent the everyday annoyances that build up until you want to scream. In one scene, As he and Dudley Moore discuss what exactly was wrong with the previous wish granted, He pulls a record off of a rotating line and opens it to scratch it then replaces the record in it's jacket. There was also a phone book that he tore random pages out of the reattached it to the line and sent it on to wherever it was headed. There were so many things like that all through the movie that you need to watch it over and over to catch all of the gags. Dudley Moore was the perfectly hapless and feckless victim of his own desires. He really was an exceptionally gifted actor. If you do manage to find this movie to watch you'll wonder why anyone ever bothered to watch the remake, it was a sorry excuse compared to the original.
