Trivia

In the original 1960s TV series, Uncle Martin had three powers: levitation, invisibility (once he raised his antennae), and mind-reading (of earthlings). Here, Uncle Martin had levitation and invisibility, but also several other exotic abilities to make the story funnier. However, he did not demonstrate that he could read the minds of the earthlings.

Tried too hard
19 May 2002 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

All I can say is I'm glad I didn't pay good money to see this, I watched it on T.V the other night. It lacked a decent script and had none of the charm of the original series. The studio sacrificed plot and character development for special effects and an attempt at slapstick. Was very disappointed in the end.
