Dudley Moore is the amiable but timid Wimpy Bar cook , Stanley, who agrees to sell his soul if he can`t `make it` with the girl of his dreams, waitress Eleanor Bron. Peter Cook (as Satan) provides him with seven wishes in exchange for his soul and luscious Raquel Welch (as Lust) is on hand to offer temptation...
Moore is charming enough and some sly commentary on Christian morality is intersting, however what really makes this film is the performance of Cook. Cook manages to combine upper class arrogance with a cheerful, even at times, casual lunacy into the role of the Devil.
