Editorial Reviews

Bumbling college student Dexter Riley (Kurt Russell) develops a mysterious liquid that actually makes objects disappear. Further experimentation reveals that it works amazingly well on humans too! Riley's startling discovery takes some hilarious new twists when a gang of crooks headed by the notorious A.J. Arno (Cesar Romero) steal the formula and attempt to use it for their less-than-legal activities. Dazzling special effects and a fast-paced story make this lively film a textbook case of college comedy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A step in the right direction June 7, 2004
By Yarby
Disney has done an admirable transfer on this movie....something that is sadly lacking on many of its live action features. The picture is beautiful...probably the best I've seen thus far from Disney. (I'm not sure what the other review meant concerning a "fake widescreen", as I found all the original picture information to be there.)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Family Comedy August 2, 2004
By Wogger
A pleasant little comedy that the entire family can enjoy. Not much violence or sex and absolutely no swearing, makes this a
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good news, it IS in widescreen May 19, 2004
To those reviewers who have given this DVD a * rating because it isn't advertised as being in widescreen, rest assured. I have this DVD and I must assure everyone that it IS IN WIDESCREEN, and the DVD transfer print is crisp and technically superior. Believe me, I'm with all of you about Disney blowing it with most new releases, but "Now You See Him, Now You Don't," "Herbie Rides Again," and "Those Calloways" are all available in widescreen, so please buy these up and send a message to the Disney dolts.
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Disney classic on DVD May 13, 2004
By Joe
Good cheesy Disney 70's live action movie. I grew up watching these so it's nice to see them on DVD finally. The negative is that it's another film dumped on DVD with no extras. Granted, it's probably not worth the time and energy for them to produce an elaborate disc with the works for a film that will not sell near as many copies as their more popular titles, but something as simple as a quick interview with Kurt Russell and others looking back would be nice.
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.

Disney's Dexter Riley, the Medfield college student who repeatedly acquires superpowers by science lab mishaps, is back again in the second film of the original Dexter Riley trilogy, 1972's "Now You See Him, Now You Don't". This time, the tone is even a tad lighter in Disney's first sequel to the family comedy "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" from 1969, but it retains every bit of the Dexter Riley charm that made the first one great. As usual, Medfield needs money and a lucky accident becomes a potential source. That is, if local crook A.J. Arno doesn't get hold of the secret formula to Dexter's new invisibility spray and mess everything up. Kurt Russell stars once again as Dexter Riley, with Cesar Romero back again as the villainous Arno, along with Richard Bakalyan as his nephew/sidekick Cookie, and Joe Flynn as the always hilarious Dean Higgins. Jim Backus also plays a significant role, and Michael McGreevey returns as sidekick Richard Schuyler. Gone are Pete and Annie, the blonde pair who added some seriousness to "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" with their concern for Dexter and his Teen-Wolf like popularity struggles in that film. Instead is added importance to Schuyler's sidekick role and a new female sidekick named Debbie, played by Joyce Menges. Debbie is there with the guys much of the time, but she is unfortunately given little to do besides spraying them with the invisibility spray and looking gorgeous. But she does that well. If you love beautiful females, Debbie is reason enough to get this film. As much as I love the movie itself, I can easily spend the whole time just looking at her; truly my idea of female perfection. But where was I?

The DVD itself is a funny thing. It's the only one of the Dexter Riley trilogy presented in widescreen.

This is similar to the strongest man in the world and the computer that wore tennis shoes. But, this was very enjoyable and funny to enjoy as a family.

It has been decades since I've seen this movie. It was funnier than I remembered, partly to do with the technology of the times.
