I saw this live on a school trip in high school. I want my money back. Les Miserables it ain't.

I'm reminded of Stephen Colbert killing someone on Law & Order; it's just impossible to take him seriously.

Wow, this is the best acting job he has ever put forth and I had no idea he could sing at all.

God, this song sucks though. Fiver!

STORY: Hasselhoff was brought in on short notice to do this show to save it from the money hole of red ink it had generated in its opening run, due to how bad it is.

Frank Wildhorn, it's writer, had made hits with Whitney Houston, Kenny Rogers, and others in LA, and thought he could conquer both coasts with this, a musical he had been writing since he was a student (He also wrote Scarlet Pimpernel, equally terrible). All of the songs were written to be radio hits, since that was his forte, so none of them are very referential or character specific, just Hallmark card slogans set to music. The libretto, however, is demanding because of the range needed to cover both Jekyll and Hyde by the same actor. Also, this was broadcast on HBO a few times live, and we all know live theater rarely converts to film very well.

This was a once in a lifetime coming together of crapfest elements.

If you don't watch this all the way to the end, you are missing out.

The last 10 seconds is all you need.

Enjoy
I kind of liked him rolling around, drunk, eating a hamburger but to each his own.

That was Mr. Hyde.

So when he's Jekyll, he drives KITT, when he's Hyde he drives Goliath?
