The film starts with Mary and Jekyll gradually growing closer despite their social stations, as Mary unbends to him and tells him how her father used to beat her for breaking cups and locked her in a cupboard under the stairs with rats. Happy days. Of course such happiness cannot last, as the doctor announces that he plans to have a new assistant. Of course the audience knows where this is heading, but the staff are naturally curious about this new man, especially since they never seem to be able to catch a glimpse of him.

* InformedAttribute: Mary has been in service since she was twelve years old yet she behaves as though she is new to the job, speaking out of turn to the doctor and snooping around very obviously. Though it could be justified as Mary says "this is by far the best place I've worked" which could imply this is the only house where she'd normally be able to get away with behaviour like that.

* SceneryPorn: Completely inverted. Numerous shots of dreary streets and dingy places but lit and framed in nice ways.

Then, Jekyll begins to ask Mary to run errands for him - some less than tasteful, such as delivering a letter to Mrs Farraday, the madame of a brothel, in order that his assistant can rent a room. Up late one night, Mary witnesses the self same assistant handing over a cheque for blood money. And when she finally meets the enigmatic Mr Hyde, things soon spiral out of control for all three of them...

* FakeIrish: Julia Roberts. The film was one of many criticisms for her poor attempt by speaking in an Irish accent.
* FakeNationality: American Julia Roberts as the Irish Mary. Also American Glenn Close as Mrs Farraday.
* {{Fan Fic}}: A very blatant one.

''Mary Reilly'' is about an Irish maid in Henry Jekyll's household who becomes the confidant and love interest of Jekyll, the unwilling accomplice and object of lust for Edward Hyde and the suspension of disbelief replacement for the audience, since by now [[ItWasHisSled everyone and his grandmother knows the doctor's little secret]]. Despite having Creator/JohnMalkovich as both Jekyll and Hyde and JuliaRoberts as Mary, the film didn't do too well at the box office and was not well received by critics, aided by the general lack of publicity before the film's opening. The book was quite good, though.
