PG-13 | | Comedy, Fantasy
Hopeless dweeb Elliot Richards is granted seven wishes by the Devil to snare Allison, the girl of his dreams, in exchange for his soul.
(at around 1h 21 mins) The Devil mentions that on November 16, she'll have been doing her job for 6,000 years. This is a reference to Archbishop James Ussher, who in the seventeenth century calculated that the birth of the world was on Sunday, 23 October 4004 BC. According to his calculations, Adam and Eve were thrown out of Paradise on Monday, 10 November.
How would you like to make one simple decision that'll change your life forever?

In the basketball fantasy the score of the game is 135-85, with Elliot scoring 104 points, yet he also recorded 32 assists, which would make the score be more than the 135, it would be at least 168.
