Jekyll and Hyde... Together Again is a campy satire and a slapstick comedy that takes its source material from the popular novella by Robert Louis Stevenson in which a man creates a potion that makes him evil. In this film, the potion is basically cocaine. You get more junky jokes than you can take, an equal amount of surgery humor and, because Mr. Hyde is a pervert, you also get sex jokes.
Jekyll and Hyde, two souls in one body, really, snort their way through this movie. Because this is stoner humor, it takes three bad jokes to get a good one. The acting is decent but the editing is horrendous, so some voices appear desynchronized. The stunts are impressive. The sets look like they are made of plastic, which is perfect for this type of comedy.
The main problem, here, is that this production is a one-trick pony. We get the idea after the first twenty minutes and we then hit repeat. Fortunately, by the end of the film, the loop is closed. We then realize how close we managed to stay to the source material using allegories. If this film took itself seriously, it would be tragic; it would be the sad story of an intoxicated playboy.
