The Underrated Obscure Sequel to The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes
29 October 2018 | by Hollywood_YodaSee all my reviews

In this underrated sequel to the 1969 film The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, we find Dexter Riley inventing again. This time, he's working on a theory of invisibility. And yet again, Dean Higgins is in need of money. Makes you wonder what happened with all the money Medfield was awarded in the first film.

This film wasn't always readily available from the Disney library, not until they were releasing the Dexter Riley trilogy on dvd. Therefore, that made the film somewhat obscure and almost unknown. One of the downfalls of this installment is that Professor Quigley (William Schallert) wasn't involved in the production. He was replaced without explanation, but does reappear in The Strongest Man in the World. Richard Bakalyan returns but as a nephew to A.J. Arno.

However, the film is funny and the special effects were great for the time period. It's a very family friendly film.
