The real negative about this release? NO EXTRAS! Nothing! Not even a trailer. Frankly, this is a movie that begs for explanation of how certain special effects were performed.
But at least I'll give Disney credit on this one for tranferring a picture the right way. Now if they'd only do it for "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes", and other great old movies.
movie that parents can watch with their children. Mischevious
college students develop an invisibility formula that helps them
to save their cash strapped college. Merely one in a series of
Kurt Russell movies set at Medvale College. A pleasant little
series set in a wholesome America before terrorists, when people
valued integrity more than cash!
As for the film, "Now You See Him..." is the second and best in Disney's college "formula" series starring Kurt Russell as science student Dexter Reilly, the late, great Joe Flynn as hapless Medfield College's hilariously uptight Dean Higgins and the late Cesar Romero (the Joker in the "Batman" TV series) as crooked banker A.J. Arno. In this version, Dexter stumbles (again) into an invisibility formula that Higgins enters into wealthy philanthrophist Forsythe's (the late, great Jim Backus) science contest, whose award money will pay off Medfield's mortgage for another year. Unfortunately, Arno wants the college land to open up a casino, so when he finds out about the formula, he decides to steal it in order to assure the college will go into foreclosure. So, essentially, it's the same plot as the other two films in the series, but the silliness just seems fresher and better paced this time. And the invisibility effects are impressive for the time, although next to "Hollow Man" they're pretty weak (although "Now You See Him..." is ten times better than that horrible Paul Verhoeven botch). Especially engaging is a madcap chase sequence involving an invisible car.Read more ›
I think Disney needs to start charging half price for these types of releases, like other studios do with their stripped down discs. Nonetheless, the bright side of this one is that it's in Widescreen format.
The DVD itself is a funny thing. It's the only one of the Dexter Riley trilogy presented in widescreen.Read more ›
