The title was not prefixed by the words "John Carpenter's", which had been the Director's practice for some time. Carpenter withdrew his next-to-the-title credit of co-titling the film with his name as "John Carpenter's" because Carpenter knew Warner Brothers would not agree to it. According to the story "John Carpenter: Prince of Darkness" by Bill Chambers at Film Freak Central, Warner Brothers would not allow Carpenter full artistic control, Carpenter saying that the studio "is in the business of making audience-friendly, non-challenging movies."

[realizing Nick is in the room]
Welcome. I often sit here like this at the end of the day in darkness and imagine what it must be like. Where you conscious when it happened? Did you feel yourself change? Did you pray?

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 »
Not a true Carpenter flick, but a true Chase flick
Chase plays an egocentric successful prick who by accident becomes invisible. Government sleaze ball Neill wants to apprehend Chase and use him to "serve" his country as a spy.
This movie isn't called John Carpenter's Memoirs of an Invisible Man, and with good reason. There is nothing Carpenteresque about this film, it feels completely like a Chevy Chace vehicle with state of the art special effects. If you like Chase you'll enjoy this film somewhat, just don't mistake it for an authentic John Carpenter movie. Chase delivers his fair share of decent one-liners and overall the film is quite enjoyable, but a lot of priority has been given to the film's spectacular special effects. The story grows a bit tiresome and it doesn't have any tricks up it's sleeve, it's mostly just Neill chasing Chase.
If you're a special effects nut then this will appeal to you. Chase fans (like myself) will like it too but this ain't no great affair. Sam Neill is a convincing bad guy and Daryl Hannah is always lovely to look at. I can't help thinking that Carpenter couldn't have had total creative control, for this is completely a by the numbers comedy. Oh well, maybe he's just slumming this time around.
