Storyline

Dr. Richard Jacks is a creator of perfumes. 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. He tries to follow in his footsteps and creates perfumes, each greater than the next. But one gives him more than he bargained for. He is transformed into a buxom bombshell, Helen Hyde. She is a powerhouse and a woman with a plan. The catch is, Richard doesn't know she exists. As he finds himself in situations each more ridiculous than the last, he becomes aware of Helen and makes a plan to get rid of her once and for all. But her career is growing. She won't go without a fight. Written by moddydhoo

Interesting, very interesting.
9 July 1999 | by rob-177See all my reviews

Dr Jekyll and Ms. Hyde is a comedy full of out of control laughter.

Sean Young is great (in more ways than one) as Helen Hyde. Although it may not prove to be everyones cup of tea I think that it could grow on you.

The whole story line is about a doctor who tries out an experiment left by his Great Grandfather, But it ends up turning him into a girl.

The laughs start and stop there. I think its worth a 7
