The movie was not the first "Invisible Man" comedy as the picture had been preceded by 1951's Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man (1951). Later, Chevy Chase would star in 1992's Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992).See more »

Great fun movie., 10 April 2000
Author: Taz-59 from Ireland

This comical tale is an example of what Saturday matinee movies used to be like. Don't be dismayed if you think this is for science fiction lovers only, it's got some great laughs, fine acting, surprisingly good special effects and a hugely enjoyable story. Great performances from the late Cesar Romero and Joe Flynn. Also notable to see a young Kurt Russell in action. Second feature in a trilogy with the same cast.
