Storyline

New York City, Dr. Richard Jacks is a creator of perfumes. He spends all of his days try to invent the next best thing in the industry. His girlfriend, Sarah, sometimes gets pushed to the side, but he loves her. One day, he discovers that his great-grandfather,Dr. Jekyll, was a scientist with a secret: a revolutionary discovery. Richard tries to follow in footsteps of his Dr. Jekyll and creates perfumes, each greater than the next. But one gives him more than he bargained for. Richard is transformed into the buxom bombshell, Helen Hyde. Helen is a powerhouse and a woman with a plan. The catch is, Richard doesn't know she exists. As he finds himself in situations that are more ridiculous than the last, Richard becomes aware of his alter ego and makes a plan to get rid of her once and for all. But, Helen's career is growing, she won't go without a fight. Written by moddydhoo

Great premise, but...
24 July 2000 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

This is a modernist twist on the classic Stevenson tale, with Tim Daly playing mild-mannered perfume researcher Richard Jacks, who is turned into the stunning (but increasingly lethal) Helen Hyde (played by the gorgeous Sean Young) when he drinks a formula bequeathed to him by his greatgrandfather, Dr. Jekyll. (Are we to assume that this is the ORIGINAL Dr. Jekyll??) Despite a fairly strong cast -- which includes Harvey Fierstein and Stephen Toboloswky as colleagues of Dr. Jacks at the perfumery and Polly Bergen in a scene-stealing turn as an important cosmetics executive --,, some neat morphing technology, and some sporadically hilarious moments, the film does not fulfill the promise of its interesting premise. OK comedy with horror aspects -- but nothing special, I'm afraid...
