Eccentric inventor Prof. John Richards seems to have hit pay dirt when he designs a contraption which can move large objects instantly by breaking them into atoms which can be streamed from one place to another. This new machine seems like a sure-fire hit, which has attracted the attention of Richards' less-than-scrupulous assistant Martin, who wants to steal the new invention and sell it himself. In order to make it easier for Martin to do just that, he uses the machine to create a duplicate of Richards, which will do his evil bidding. The professor's son, Jack, and wife, Barbara, learn about Martin's underhanded doings, and Barbara uses another one of her husband's gimmicks to get revenge against Martin -- she turns herself invisible.

The fun is visible, not outta sight!
2 February 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Dr. John Richards is a scientist currently working on a device which will zap or beam someone to a new location. His wife, also a scientific genius, is now a stay at home mother of preteen Jackie. Cohorts of Dr. Richards, however, want to steal this new invention in order to sell it on the black market. Can the three members of the Richards family carry the day and thwart the criminals, with a few tricks of their own? This movie may not turn up a winner at any film festival, but it is a nice family flick, if somewhat in the featherweight class. The principal actors are attractive and fun and the plot is typically zany. It has a couple of scenes which may be mildly offensive to the gay community...lighthearted fun carried a bit too far. However, it is nothing serious. If you stumble across the film at the video store or library, give it a try.
