Bedazzled

There are times when a man wants to be someone else because he feels that he is not worthy of the girl of his dreams. Meet Elliot (Brendan Fraiser) who is so head over heels in love with a co-worker that he makes a deal with the devil (Elizabeth Hurley) to give him chances at living the lifestyles of other rich, famous, and powerful men in order to draw the attention of his beloved. Elliot soon learns that words can have literal meanings and that you should always be careful what you wish for, especially if its the devil granting them.

Continuity mistake: When Elliot's the basketball player, when he scores the slam-dunk and breaks the headboard, he breaks the headboard after the slam as he bounces/hangs off the headboard. But in the replay he breaks the headboard as he makes the slam and then bounces/hangs off the headboard. (00:49:10)

Question: In the scene where Elliot signs the contract, there is a magnificent red fountain pen on top of the papers. Does anybody know what the pen is, or if it is even a real commercial pen?

Answer: It definitely is a Montegrappa Oriental Zodiac pen, this brand has been making pens in Italy since 1912. I am not sure which of the three red pens in that collection (Oriental Zodiac) is the one seen in the movie, but given its association with the devil, my guess will be it is the Ox fountain pen.
