JEKYLL and HYDE … TOGETHER AGAIN (Olive Blu-ray)
I was hoping for something funnier that had more Horror elements included. Young Frankenstein comes to mind, but I should have realized from the cover art and cast that that was not going to be the case. Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again simply didn't do it for me. It was bland with some funny moments that borrowed heavily from successful sex comedies. Without powerful actors to develop the concept or deliver perfect comedy, well... I'm afraid I didn't laugh. I also didn't find much in the way of Horror elements to appreciate. You might as well be looking at a mad scientist picture rather than specifically limiting the story to Jekyll/Hyde.
I think fans of the movie will be happy with Olive's transfer which looks nice. The cover art is traditional (no reverse). No extras.

The Robert Louis Stevenson classic is turned on its ear, or in this case its funny bone, in the Jerry Belson (TV’s The Odd Couple) directed Jekyll and Hyde … Together Again. While researching a drug that would make surgeries obsolete, Dr. Daniel Jekyll (Mark Blankfield, Robin Hood: Men in Tights) inadvertently discovers a substance that unleashes the animal that lives inside every man. Using himself as a guinea pig, Jekyll reverts from his shy, self-effacing, serious self to the hyper-sexual, party-‘till-you-drop alter ego, Mr. Hyde. Jekyll and Hyde … Together Again, written for the screen by Monica Johnson, Harvey Miller, Jerry Belson and Michael Leeson, co-stars Bess Armstrong (High Road to China) as Mary, Jekyll’s loving fiancée; Krista Errickson (Little Darlings) as Ivy, Hyde’s lusty paramour; and Tim Thomerson (Near Dark) as Jekyll’s smarmy colleague Dr. Knute Lanyon.
