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 »

Yves DuBois: What am I paying you for? 20 years in therapy and I start liking girls? That's malpractice.

Forgotten cases
7 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Now as a fan of the movies from the 1990s a decade that gave us so many classic and masterpiece motion pictures.

However like every decade of motion pictures there are bad apples and this film is one apple that fell way off the tree.

It is more or less a comedy retake of The Strange Case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde but with a twist inside of he becoming a monster, he transforms into a beautiful woman but with a twisted soul.

Dr.Jekyll and Ms.Hyde tells the story of a Perfumer Dr.Richard Jacks (Tim Daly) who discovers his great grandfather is the original Dr.Henry Jekyll. After getting his formula he decides to use it however after testing it on himself he transforms into Helen Hyde (Sean Young) a beautiful yet twisted woman.

Now the plot is mostly a retelling of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde but inside of Dr.Jekyll turning into a monster he transforms into a woman.

However the film just falls short on everything from the acting to the plot of the film.

Looking at the movie now it makes you wonder why was it even given a theater run because it clearly wouldn't break even at the box office and yet HBO Studios took a chance and it wasn't a good one.

I mean there is hardly anything in this movie that will even hold your interest because the plot of the film is ridiculous, the acting is simply awful I have seen small budget TV movies with better acting than this. The effects are boring and very cheap.

And now it is one of the rarest films to get your hands on and pretty much will cost a lot of money to get your hands on.

I'm sure the film has some one to watch it but it just not for everyone.

I give Dr.Jekyll and Ms.Hyde an 3 out of 10
