Jekyll And Hyde Together Again
The movie that made Robert Louis Stevenson spin in his grave! Mark Blankfield delivers a manic turn as both Jekyll and Hyde in a farce that will appeal to fans of Mel Brooks and the Zucker Brothers. Henry Jekyll is a well-respected scientist who discovers a way to isolate man's "animal instinct." The only problem is that his inner animal turns out to be a gold-toothed, hairy-chested party-animal named Mr. Hyde. The classic struggle between good and evil takes a back seat to opportunities for off-the-wall zaniness at every turn. Jekyll and Hyde Together Again keeps the unapologetically non-PC jokes coming one after another in one of Hollywood's classic spoofs.
You see now this is what I'm talking about, man! A Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde movie I can get behind. Sure it's not exactly a horror cornerstone (or should I say, stoned?), but at the very least we get a transformation that amounts to more than your now usual "just have your actor act differently". In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that you will never, and I mean ever, see a more memorable Mr. Hyde than the one that you will find here. Get ready for an alternate ego inspired trip of mayhem like no other!
Dr. Jekyll (a hilarious Mark Blankfield, whatever happened to him?) is a successful surgeon, but he wants to abandon his scalpel for research into harnessing man's animal instinct. As a result, while slaving away in his lab, he creates what can only be described as super-cocaine to help him delve deeper into the old psyche. Upon accidentally snorting a lot of it, Henry transforms into a wild-haired, googly-eyed sex fiend with an enormous schlong and penchant for humping anything ... including the air around him. Once taken over by Hyde, Jekyll's life takes a drastic turn. Hyde wants him to ditch his mundane, sterile lifestyle so does whatever he can to weed out what little normalcy was once known to his good self in order to destroy it. YAY!
What we have here is probably one of the most politically incorrect movies ever made. You name it, it's here in some form or another: cross-dressing, bestiality, group sex, light fetishes, dick jokes, lewd song and dance numbers, and funniest of all -- an amazing amount of air-humping! I swear to god, I don't have any idea how Blankfield was able to walk while portraying Hyde. This guy's hips just keep thrusting, thrusting, and thrusting. As a matter of fact, I think I even saw some lust in my girlfriend's eyes while we were diggin' on the flick. Chicks like the bad boys, do they not? It's too funny for words; you just have to see it. "Have to see it." You know, for me rarely have four words rung so true when pertaining to a horror-comedy. Jekyll and Hyde Together Again is a film that defies description with something in it to offend just about everyone. If you're looking for an outrageously lowbrow and perverted good time, then this particular Dr. Jekyll can write you one hell of an entertaining prescription!
If only he could have done something about the DVD extras, or should I say lack thereof? We get nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zippo. Donut land. Not even a trailer. Feh.
While it's not for everyone, Jekyll and Hyde Together Again provides more entertainment per second than recent flicks of its ilk like Scary Movie, etc. If being tasteless were an art form, brothers and sisters, we'd be looking at the Mona Lisa.
And Hyde would no doubt ... be humping her. --Uncle Creepy of DreadCentral.com

It's an absolute must see, my personal comedy favorite! This movie is hillarious with continuous jokes. You have to watch it several times, because I found new things in it every time I saw it (maybe I missed stuff while I was rolling on the floor holding my belly because it hurt so much from laughing).
Mark Blankfield plays the shy Dr. Daniel Jekhyll who drinks this concoction that doesn't turn him into a murderous monster but actually into this hillarious, lovable while annoying sex-crazed potion-junkie. He hooks up with this punk-singer/prostitute chick who work's at Madam Woo Woo's and comes to Jekhyll at the Hospital for help. Great psychedelic effects and non-stop comedy. Not recommended for little kids, though.
Blankfield shows his full-out true comic genious, one that seems to have escaped the majority of the American movie watching public.
Shame on the studio for not releasing this classic on DVD and giving a new generation a chance to watch something "just for a fun time."
We need to laugh more these days and this movie will get you started.
Now all that week in school, I had been bombarded by "Just Say No" propaganda geared to scare an urchin like me straight. They scared me a little TOO well. All that week, I was afraid some skeevy freak was gonna dose my Orange Juice with some Orange Sunshine and turn me -against my will- into a slobbering, murdering mutant scum like Tony Montana from "Scarface."
When I see Mark Blankfield, aka Dr. DANIEL Jekyll, dicing up some blow... er, a sample of his SERUM, I start getting nervous. Why would my pop bring me to some awful, AWFUL movie that plumbed the depths of the seedy underworld of NARCOTICS? Bear in mind I was eight, and had yet to learn of "Reefer Madness." Long story short: Blankfield snorts the blow and undergoes the hideous, diabolic metamorphosis INTO... Frank Zappa with gold chains and MOOD RINGS???
When he flashed his gold plated tooth with the "LOVE" engravement, I proceeded to laugh my baby-smooth ASS off. I even told my pop after the film, "That guy looked like one of your hippie friends!" That made my pop laugh even harder!
Bless this goofy little film! Blessed be the show-stopping number, "Hyde's Got Nothing to Hide!" And pity poor George "West Side Story" Chakiris for his hapless cameo! "J&K Together Again" helped me get over my paralyzing phobia of drugs. NO, I'm not a stoner. It's no classic, but it's a damned sight better than "Porky's" or "Police Academy!" THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT!!!Read more ›
Mark Blankfield (who is hysterical and should be working more!) plays Dr. Henry Jekyll, a world renowned surgeon at the 'Our Lady Of Pain And Suffering' hospital. He announces he is no longer going to operate, but will instead turn his attention to research. When he accidentally concocts a potion in his lab, a super drug, and accidentally inhales it, it turns our mild mannered Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde, a spiky haired, mustachioed, gold toothed, hairy chested party animal. As Hyde, Jekyll lets all his inhibitions go and lets it all out. In the process, he acquires an obsession with Ivy, even though he is to be engaged to Mary (Bess Armstrong) as Dr. Jekyll.
What we have here is a very politically incorrect comedy in the way that only a wild 80s comedy could do. Ah, I miss those days. The movie has a lot of physical, slapstick humor, but also sight and sound gags in the vein of Mel Brooks, and the Zucker Brothers ("Airplane", "The Naked Gun"). You really don't know what will be seen or heard next.Read more ›
