Crazy Credits

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 »

Being unseen can been helpful or hurtful
26 February 2008 | by GOWBTWSee all my reviews

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!
