Elliot Richardson, a suicidal techno geek, is given seven wishes to turn his life around when he meets a very seductive Satan. The catch: his soul. Some of his wishes include a 7 foot basketball star, a rock star, and a hamburger. But, as could be expected, the Devil puts her own little twist on each of his fantasies.

Good watch, might watch again, but hard to recommend. This almost just looks like Brendan Fraser had a list characters he wanted to try out, and Elizabeth Hurley had a list of "devilish" characters she wanted to try, and this movie just serendipitously appeared. It really leans on the "how ridiculous can we get" button, but it is almost exactly what the premise says it is: Brendan Fraser gets 7 wishes to try to get together with the woman of his dreams, and then it goes as horribly as you might imagine. There are lots of funny bits in this and some cringe moments. The movie finds a nice balance between being based on religion and being (not sac-)religious. The problem is that while it is solid, it doesn't necessarily hold up to 2020 comdies.
