I can't see anything.
24 July 2003 | by (Mansfield, Pennsylvania.) – See all my reviews

Whenever I watch this movie, I marvel at how pathetically horrible the picture is. A lot of cheap eighties movies need remastering. I say need, because all movies deserve to look their best. The Invisible Kid is a fantasy movie for guys. The locker room scene looks like fun and it would be cool to see a girl appear before you in a towel. Jay Underwood(Not Quite Human), Chynna Phillips(Wilson-Phillips), Karen Black(Easy Rider), and Brother Theodore(Uncle Reuben from The Burbs!) have roles. Several scenes are a little mind numbing like the last one which gets ridiculous. Fun to watch when it pops up on HBO every now and then.
