Doctor Jekyll tries to be funny
13 April 2009 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

My main reason for seeing this farce was the fact that it stars the stunningly beautiful Edwige Fenech. Her presence is all well and good; but as a film in its own right, this leaves a lot to be desired. The title suggests that the film will take influence from Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel; and it does. What we have here is a sort of sex comedy revolving around magic potions and split personalities. The plot focuses on Dr Jekyll; a man who finds his other side thanks to his grandfather, who mysteriously lives in a bed in his basement. However, instead of turning him evil; he turns into a camp blonde 'nice guy'. I really liked the randomness of this film; there's no real cohesion to the story and it really does make it clear that the film is going to do anything it wants. However, what it does generally isn't all that interesting, or funny, and I spent most of the duration feeling rather bored. The film also features what has to be one of the most irritating soundtracks ever written. Edwige Fenech is something of a disappointment too as she isn't given much opportunity to look sexy and it feels like a bit of a waste. The film rattles on for about ninety minutes and the ending doesn't offer up anything that really warrants seeing the film. Only hardcore Edwige Fenech fans need apply...and to be honest, you'd be better served seeing one of her Giallo's again.
