Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde) Reviews

June 21, 2018
The credits for this French horror comedy cite Robert Louis Stevenson as inspiration, but the more direct antecedent is Jerry Lewis's The Nutty Professor.

There are problems with Mrs. Hyde that have nothing whatsoever to do with Bozon's puzzling creative choices, though for perspective's sake, the problems are dwarfed by the choices.

Maybe it's only fitting that a Jekyll-and-Hyde tale would be of two minds. Unfortunately, neither of them is completely satisfying.

Mrs. Hyde has its keen moments, but it lacks a thesis. If it were a term paper, any conscientious teacher would send it back for a rewrite.

Bozon...seems perversely committed to frustrating not just conventional audience expectations but also any hope whatsoever that one might have for narrative and/or thematic coherence.

Whenever the movie tries to say something insightful about racial integration - or education, or any number of issues - it backs off or bogs down. It's so tonally and ideologically unfocused that its ideas just slip away.

I wanted to see the classic tale of hidden identity I was promised, not a retread of Stand and Deliver.

The film's segregated world hints at a town's (and country's) racial tensions without actually examining them.

The effects hawk back to Wes Craven's "Shocker" while the classroom scenes attempt to capture something from "Dangerous Minds" but lands somewhere between "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit" and "Kindergarten Cop."

Madame Hyde has a simple premise that is complicated by pretentious storytelling and sold as high art.

It's hard to keep up with all the competing elements that Mrs. Hyde throws into the mix.

As if watching a Bruce Banner who never fully Hulks out, we sadly just don't get to witness Huppert ripping into the role of the selfish, voracious id-monster that the title promises.

It achieves stray laughs and some clever moments, but not enough to render it more than a strained curiosity.
