Trivia

Composer Jack Nitzsche who previously worked with Carpenter on Starman (1984) was the first choice of composer but he was unavailable. Producer Chevy Chase remembered seeing Shirley Walker conducting the orchestra when he was attending the scoring stage to his film Christmas Vacation (1989) so he suggested that they use Walker to score this film.

Crazy Credits

Over the first minute or so of the end credits we see Nick skiing in snowy mountains, his head and face covered with a hat, goggles and scarf. He comes to a stop outside a large cabin. Alice comes out, evidently pregnant. Nick lifts his goggles and pulls the scarf down from around his face, but of course he is still invisible. Alice kisses him, and takes his gloved hand and holds it to her belly, so he can feel the baby kicking... See more »

Surprisingly good...
20 July 1999 | by (Barry, Texas USA) – See all my reviews

Memoirs of an Invisible Man tanked in 1992, and was seen by many as a dismal failure, and a sure sign of Chevy Chase's film career demise. However, I, a life-long Chase fan, was pleasantly surprised by the film, and enjoyed it thoroughly.

It is fast-paced, quick-witted, and features a terrific dramatic turn for Chase. While the story is somewhat muddled, and the other performances, especially Darryl Hannah's, remain a bit stoic and wooden, the eye-popping special effects are truly top notch.

Chevy Chase has never been respected in Hollywood, and his movies are always deemed as failures, but to me, and others, he is a comedic genius, either as the familiar buffoon, such as Clark Griswold of the superb Vacation series, or as the aloof wisecracker, such as Irwin Fletcher, in the Fletch films.

Highly recommended.
