Shortcut to Happiness
2004
 
Based on Stephen Vincent Benét's short story "The Devil and Daniel Webster," this big-screen adaptation stars Alec Baldwin as a desperate author who sells his soul to the devil (Jennifer Love Hewitt) to get his work published. Driven to distraction by the success of a friend Dan Aykroyd, writer Jabez Stone (Baldwin) soon regrets the Faustian bargain and enlists a famous orator (Anthony Hopkins) to defend him in court against Old Scratch.
Synopsis compliments of Netflix
Drama, Fantasy
 
The beginning is rather blase until Jennifer Love Hewitt shows up. Unfortunately only the scenes with Anthony Hopkins or Hewitt in them felt strong, the rest of the film just had an air of indifference.
