One particular device that Chevy Chase had to wear for the film was a set of blue, eyeball-sized, contact lenses, so his eyes would appear invisible with his face looking like a mask, but with empty eye sockets. To wear them, his eyes first had to be numbed with sedative medication. The lenses had special miniature pinholes so Chase could see through them. However, after about fifteen minutes of wearing them, Chase said they gave him a headache. See more »
An invisible man would be blind, the only way to see is for light to reflect off the back of the retina. If the retina is invisible the light would pass through. See more »
Listen to what we're offering you.
In exchange for what?
For your services, of course, to your country. You have a wider obligation now. You can be of immeasurable value to us.
I'm not doing your spying.
Suppose we'd had you, an invisible agent in 1939. Maybe there wouldn't have been a second World War.
What are you saying? You mean I would've killed Hitler for you?
I mean maybe you could've saved thirty million lives. Changed history. Now, assassination, anything at all, is entirely ethical if...

Over the first minute or so of the end credits we see Nick skiing in snowy mountains, his head and face covered with a hat, goggles and scarf. He comes to a stop outside a large cabin. Alice comes out, evidently pregnant. Nick lifts his goggles and pulls the scarf down from around his face, but of course he is still invisible. Alice kisses him, and takes his gloved hand and holds it to her belly, so he can feel the baby kicking... See more »

Chevy Chase is at it again. This time he plays a yuppie who become totally transparent after a freak accident. In "Memoirs of an Invisible Man", Nick Halloway(Chase) becomes both victim and pawn of the CIA. Halloway becomes invisible following an explosion in a laboratory which, makes him a perfect weapon against the enemy. However, someone in the CIA wanted him for more than that. So Nick escapes, and goes to the woman he loves dearly, Alice Monroe(Darryl Hannah). She thinks that Nick is dead, but when she sees the truth, it's out of sight. Literally. Nick's personality and wit gives him the edge when Jenkins(Sam Neill) would give him a promise to give him back his molecules so he can be living a normal life again. So far, Nick finds his condition a bit of a plus so far. He can play practical jokes, without getting caught. The only way you can get caught is to misuse the ability of stealth. It's a lot of fun, it's too bad it didn't do well at the box office. This movie is perfect for home viewing I believe. It wouldn't hurt to be invisible, just get used to it. 4 out of 5 stars!
