Bedazzled

Trivia: When Elliot is on the beach, as the devil walks by with two dogs she refers to them as Dudley and Peter, which is a reference to Dudley Moore and Peter Cook - the stars of the original Bedazzled.

Trivia: Not a mistake but something clever. When the Devil was a schoolteacher, the first equation on the board was Fermat's Last Theorem (X to the Nth + Y to the Nth = Z to the Nth for N is greater than 2). It was proven in 1995 that there is no integer solution to this equation; exactly the kind of problem the Devil would give to an Algebra class, but not really expected in your standard Hollywood film...

Trivia: When Elliot returns home during the wish where we find out he's gay, his boyfriend mentions the movie The Pajama Game, which was directed by Stanley Donen, the director of the original Bedazzled film.

Continuity mistake: Elliot is hanging from the trifork in hell, his shirt is smoking and is close to catching on fire. The angle changes and there is no smoke then changes back and there is smoke.

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.
