Should have this on DVD and Blu-Ray
28 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I know the movie The Body Disappears is like an Invisible Woman parody. I think this is a great movie to watch. Even if they made a remake of this movie, Carmen Electra, Megan Fox, Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Shannon Elizabeth, Tara Reid or Mena Suvari would be terrific to play Jane Wymann's character. This movie makes me laugh anyhow. I hope this movie comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray because it is the kind of classic invisible woman movie to watch. Maybe Warner Brothers studios would love to make a modern remake of The Body Disappears. Both the original and remake, if they will make a remake will make me laugh out loud.
