Storyline

New York City, 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. Richard tries to follow in his footsteps and creates perfumes, each greater than the next. But one gives him more than he bargained for. Richard is transformed into a 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 each 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

Goofs

In several scenes we see Richard walking into a room wearing women's clothing having just transformed back from Helen. None of the clothes in any of the scenes have torn or been even slightly stretched, a seeming impossibility given the difference in size between Richard and Helen. See more »

Classic freak turned to comedy!!!..Not bad!!
14 March 2000 | by win-3See all my reviews

I do like the way this movie tries to tell us about value of human being.Simply funny story but witty script.The cast was very good.Sean Young and Tim Daily were so smart as Jekyll and Hyde for this comedy version.The movie was obliged to the script based on a play.Happily,I can watch it over again to appreciate Tim's speech near the end.
