Arno Strikes Back
16 August 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

College genius Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell) creates a formula for invisibility spray. Villainous businessman A.J. Arno (Caesar Romero) is released from jail and immediately starts scheming to turn Dexter's university into a casino. Dexter uses the invisibility spray to help save the school but Arno discovers his secret and steals the formula.

Second in Disney's Dexter Riley trilogy with Kurt Russell, Caesar Romero, and company. It's an enjoyable bit of fluff. You won't hurt your brain, that's for sure. Russell and the rest of the cast are good. Joe Flynn as Dean Higgins steals every scene he's in. Decent special effects and family-friendly humor. It's a fun movie that should appeal to young and old alike.
