Picks and Pans Review: Jekyll and Hyde...together Again
Mark Blankfield, of ABC's Fridays, plays the classic dual role of a surgeon turned medical researcher and an insatiably lustful disco refugee. This time, Jekyll invents a white powder which he (guess what?) snorts, after which his fingers produce rings, his chest sprouts hair, his pants tighten, and his shoes grow platforms. The deranged Hyde repowders his nose nonstop and terrorizes Los Angeles while pursuing a sleazy Punkette named Ivy (Krista Errickson). Hyde carries on everywhere from the supermarket to surgery. The whole film comes off like an overlong comedy skit, and is too foolish for grown-ups, too druggy and sexy for kids. (R)
