Formulaic but plenty of fun for families
13 July 2005 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Andrew Bailey (Daran Norris)is an architect who has been moving from job to job, in a variety of cities, much to the dislike of his son, Doug. Their new abode, however, turns out to be the former home of a couple of wacky scientists. It sure picks up Doug's spirits when he finds a machine designed to render people invisible and change time, in the garage! It works well for a couple of practice runs. However, one day Doug turns his Dad invisible, just as the machine breaks down. Dad has a big project due soon for his firm, too. What's a new boy in town supposed to do? This film may be formulaic, yes, but it is still fun. In fact, sometimes a formula is comforting as the viewer knows this is going to be another great entry in family fare. The actors are all unknown, except, perhaps, Karen Black, yet they all fulfill the dramatic demands of their roles quite well. There is a romance, bad guys, heroes, far-out science, and more to make a child's face light up. Try it and have good family film fest.
