Trivia

This was the second of the "Dexter Riley" movies, a trilogy of three high-concept Disney fantasy-comedies starring Kurt Russell as Dexter, and also starring Joe Flynn and Cesar Romero. Each has a science fiction theme. The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969) (robotics/human computers) was followed by Now You See Him, Now You Don't (1972) (invisibility) and The Strongest Man in the World (1975) (super-strength).

charming family fun
1 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

College dean Higgins (Joe Flynn) is trying to cut the chemistry department budget. He dismisses all the science being done by the students. A lightning strike hits the lab. The next day, Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell) checks the damaged experiments and discovers an invisibility liquid. He shows his friends Richard Schuyler and Debbie Dawson. Crooked investor A.J. Arno (Cesar Romero) has bought up the college's mortgage. The Dean is clueless but the three friends suspect Arno has nefarious motives.

This is the second of the Dexter Riley movies from Disney. It is charming family fun. There is an endearing innocence about these movies. Baby-faced Kurt Russell is great. I also love the pre-CGI special effects. As a kid, I was engrossed by them. As an adult, I am enchanted by them. The story is silly but that's also part of the charm.
