The Man Who Wasn't There
26 May 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Inane 3-D comedy with the always lifeless Guttenberg starring as a bureaucrat caught up in some big international plot to steal invisibility potions. The laughs are few and the story is uneven. Sad to see the always entertaining Tambor in such drivel.
