The movie looks good and has its moments. But, overall, the movie borders on boredom.

This isn't dumb, but it plays out as academically as it sounds, without a shred of true terror and with only the most muted sexual charge. Solemn, portentous and curiously dull, there is simply no chemical charge between Roberts and Malkovich.
The film is too mannered, too stuffy.
Sluggish and interminable, Mary Reilly makes good on little of its potential to be disturbing and none of its chance to be emotionally involving.
Mary Reilly works as Gothic melodrama because it understands the genre so well.
A perversely courageous disaster that audiences will simply hate.
The story lacks purpose.
Certainly Julia Roberts' strangest role, and she does an OK job.
[Roberts's] acting is of the Melrose Place/Andrew Shue variety, her eyes blank and mouth often agape (not unlike the photo of her used in the print ads).
If nothing else, proves that when you take Julia's lipstick away, much of her appeal goes, too.
I have nightmares about being forced to sit through 'Mary Reilly' one more time.
Psychological thriller that nibbles at the edges of the theme of sexual repression and its perils.
Julia Roberts' performance was justly mocked, but the remainder of the film may be the most faithful version of Jekyll and Hyde ever made.
instead of the usual first person perspective of stevenson's jekyll/hyde saga, herein the action is viewed from the eyes of a possibly abused country servant girl, well played by julia roberts (the absolute best i've ever seen her). moody atmospherics and a paced timing - not to mention the interesting "my boyfriend is a drug addict" underpinnings - add to the classic horror feel of this and malkovich? ... born to play this role: cool, detached and bored as hell as jekyll; passionate, violent and out-of-control as hyde.
Murky, mushy, glacially slow, and devoid of suspense, with one-note performances from the stars. Julia Roberts, unable to deploy her trademark smile, cowers like a scared rabbit, while John Malkovich inexplicably plays Jekyll and Hyde as looking and sounding almost exactly alike.
but not a great version of the story of jekly and hdye.
Its acted well by both Roberts and Malkovich and its watchable and has funny scenes and it does keep you guessing for a while but theres not much to the storyline!
This movie captures my heart. Anyway, besides me, I think Julia Roberts played it all so well, even though Malkovich stole the spotlight all throughout the movie, I have to say this has to be one of the most best played roles Roberts has done in her career (despite what the critiques say!). In addition, Glen Close, as always, plays a perfectly wonderful, hard and wreched woman.
