The Poster Tag Line Was Right!
12 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The funniest movie you never saw!" is what the poster exclaims and they were right. Because true comedy won't be found here. I actually saw this back when it was released in theaters in the early 80's. The movie is a simple, cheap jack tale of invisibility and international intrigue that's loaded with political incorrectness and juvenile gags. There are a handful of shots that are really cool in 3-D. However there some really bad 3-D effects, most due to poor understanding or handling of the equipment and 3-D techniques. And the film is in the top 5 running for world's worst rear screen projection usage in a movie. What it could have been with better cast and more money is an interesting thought. This also has to have the weirdest and dumbest team of killers ever seen in a movie. The 3-D gets a 2 and the movie gets a 3.
