Dr. Heckle And Mr. Hype: Terrible Movies #62

A monstrous looking podiatrist undergoes a Robert Lewis Stevenson transformation in reverse and comedy ensues, I guess. Oliver Reed mugs in bad make-up and you can actually see what's left of his career at this point completely implode. I realize the plot involves a podiatrist (Don't you remember? I just told you.), but this film seems almost as foot obsessed as Quentin Tarantino. Entirely laugh-free and packed with too many WTF moments to list here. Features lines of dialogue like, "The pucker will pass.", "My mother always said to wash your feet twice a day and see a podiatrist twice a year.", "Nothing to offend the undertaker except maybe a little diarrhea.", and "She's dead and I'm still a virgin.", which seems kind of funny here in print but is oddly not humorous in execution. On Netflix Instant Streaming.


  1. Hi:
    The tile you have for the movie, "Dr. Heckle And Mr. Jive" does not match the poster you have attached to your review. It is hard to read the title in poster due to the small size and jpg effect. The poster's spelling looks more like, "Dr. Heckyl and Mr. Hype". This movie title comes up in the IMDb.
