The first Chevy Chase movie that I ever saw...and its in Movie Madnesss horror section.
If you're walking through Movie Madness's horror section and see aChevy Chase movie, you may think that it's either a joke, or thatyou're dreaming. Well, it's serious. "Memoirs of an Invisible Man" wasactually the first Chevy Chase movie that I ever saw (and I even saw itin the theaters). Chase plays San Francisco stock analyst NickHalloway, who becomes see-through after an accident. His only hope isdocumentary maker Alice Monroe (Daryl Hannah), but CIA agent DavidJenkins (Sam Neill) has his eye on Nick (not literally, of course).Much of the movie has Nick running away from people. Some scenes arejust straight comedy, like his dream of undressing. But most of themovie portrays the grim world that Nick is forced to inhabit. Maybethis was an allusion to the malaise that had taken over the countryduring Bush Sr's presidency. I wouldn't call this John Carpenter's bestmovie ever, but I did find it interesting, if only to see Chevy Chasein a non-goofy role.

damn good movie
This review is from: Memoirs of an Invisible Man (DVD) This was one of those movies that came out and no one saw or forgot about. It was a great movie that played up on the universal monster movie of the invisible man. A great real look and what someone would go through if in that situation.

one of Carpenters better films
Chevy Chase plays Nick Halloway, an innocent bystander who is madeinvisible because of an accident. When government agent David Jenkins(Sam Neill) realizes that Nick has become the world's first invisibleman, Jenkins sets out to capture him and force him to be an invisiblespy for the government. The rest of the movie shows Chase fleeing fromNeill. Along the way, Chase meets Daryl Hannah (Alice Monroe), theyfall in love, and she helps him out.The FX in the film are well done. The initial scene when the buildingChase is in becomes invisible is a marvel.There is a very funny scene when Chase hails down a cab bycommandeering a drunk who has stumbled out of a bar.Chase is very good in this type of role, as he was in the Fletchmovies, where he gets to play a wisecracking bumbler. This role seemswritten just for him. Sam Neill is also good as the espionage agent whorelentlessly pursues Chase. He brings just the right amount offanaticism to the character. Daryl Hannah also does a good job as thelove interest and as usual she looks great.Because Carpenter didn't write the movie or the music, the film doesn'tquite have the genuine Carpenter feel to it. Like Big Trouble in LittleChina, the film has a heavy dose of comedy. Memoirs of An Invisible Manis one of Carpenter's better films and worth seeing.

Very Underrated Film
Memois of an invisible man was very underrated and deserved a lot morecredit then it got cause this was an excellent film, very well writtenand very good special effects. Chevy Chase plays an obnoxious businessman who as the result of a lab accident becomes what we all dream of asa child, becoming invisible, But for Nick (Chevy Chase) he is not solucky especially when the evil sleaze ball Jenkins(Sam Neil) from theCIA gets word of it and wants to use Nick for a country spy. All Nickwants to do is go on with the rest of his life and be with the woman ofhis Dreams, Alice (Daryl Hannah)but he has to constantly be on the runfrom the CIA as they will stop at nothing to get him. However, thending was good cause Jenkins got what he deserved and Nick ends upfinally going on with his life with Alice.This movie goes to show that Cheve Chase can play a serious role andJohn Carpenter can make a good film. There was some funny parts in thefilm but all in all the film was sort of a serious story. This filmshould have got a lot more credit and recognition then it did becauseall their actors did a wonderful job in the film so If you haven't seenthis film I highly recommend it cause it's definitely worth seeing.

an underrated and good bad movie
There is always "something" in a John Carpenter movie. In this one, thegreat "something" is a really great nonsense humor. Lots of sequencesare, in my opinion, unforgettable. Like the moment when the invisibleChevy Chase manipulates a guy he knocked to use a taxi. I love the waythe CIA guys do every mistake possible (acting as treaters andvillains) or the way Nick Halloway tries hard to have a quiet andnormal life - no invisible man had wished that before, I think. It isdefinitely not a great movie and even not the average John Carpentermovie, but it still is fun. The french-subbed dialogs are very funny, Idon't know how accurate they are to the original dialogs.

A lot of fun
John Carpenter's daft but highly enjoyable 90's update of the InvisibleMan yarn, this time spun on bespectacled stock broker Chevy Chase whosesomewhat alarming physical start makes him the target of an FBI Mobster(Sam Neil) and his bunch of goons. Carpenter's film is often asperplexed as its protagonist, not knowing whether to commit itself tobeing straight sci-fi, comedy, adventure or thriller. But, in thiscase, the muddle somehow works in its favour, giving the film a senseof unorthodox uniqueness and fun. There's also a few good laughs alongthe way and plenty of cheeky sight gags though for all the specialeffects on offer its Neil's smarmy, smart-ass villain who steals theshow.

Carpenters worst is better than most
No, this is NOT John Carpenter's finest hour but even at his worst, he can make a better film than most of the dreck we see today.Chevy Chase plays it straight here (thank god) but it's Sam Neill (playing a nefarious government agent) who steals the show.Like most Carpenter fans, we want ALL of his movies on DVD but Warner Brothers has yet to release this on DVD yet. If you want "Memoirs..." on DVD, please write them a letter and ask for it. Here's their address;Warner Home Video4000 Warner Blvd.Burbank, CA 91522

Movie was put together very great with a good storyline. I liked the plot and how good of an actor Chevy Chase is. Chevy Chase's antics are always great! Everytime I watch a movie with Chevy Chase, I usually laugh hard.

Good Chevy Chase and Not Much More
This was the second time I've seen the film. It holds up pretty well, but it is clearer that it is essentially Chevy Chase and Company. Sam Neil has little more to do than put on a not very convincing imitation of himself doing a really nasty guy. Darryl Hannah does what she is supposed to do-be the girl who finds invisible irresistible. There are chase scenes, explosions, helicopters and assorted other manifestations of the get him or kill him attitude but the tension level never rise to more than luke warm.In sum, a decent comedy-thriller which should keep you entertained.

My Take: It' ain't great, but its funny and interesting, and packedwith wildly imaginative special effects. Part-Hitchcockian manhunt thriller, part-James Whale and part-screwballspecial effects comedy, John Carpenter's 1992 misunderstood MEMOIRS OFAN INVISIBLE MAN is a delightful although not entirely great comedy. Orwas it really meant to be a comedy? Although it's obviously a ChevyChase vehicle pumped up by (for-the-time) groundbreaking specialeffects. But was it really a comedy? John Carpenter refuses to tell usexactly what the identity of, not the character, bu the movie. It wasboth a thriller, a comedy and a love story at the same time. And,although Carpenter wasn't able to balance all three genres together andmake them mesh together completely, he does provide an interesting andskillfully-made little film. The special effects are dated compared totoday's standards (By the following year, these kind of special effectswould be extinct and would make way for CGI with JURASSIC PARK) butthey are still quite convincing at some scenes. As a matter of fact,they're actually quite funny in some scenes (The scene where Chase seesthe food he just ate digesting was pretty hilarious). The performancesare decent at best, with Sam Niell in fine form as the antagonist, aruthless undercover agent, and Daryll Hannah as a finedamsel-in-distress. Chase is pretty good too, although due to hiscomedic screen presence, it's quite hard to take him seriously duringhis scenes that are meant to be serious.Although flawed, MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN is a skillfully-paced andhilarious film. It might be an overstatement to say Carpenter was incontrol here, but no one can say he didn't at least do a passable job.Rating: *** out of 5.

A movie with a serious Chevy Chase - I liked it
I've seen this movie a couple of times, and I like to watch it eversince I saw it the first time when its on TV. The plot is moderatelyoriginal, the settings are good, and on top of all, we see great actingfrom all three leads: Sam Neill, Daryl Hannah and - to my surprise -Chevy Chase. My main memories about him the time I saw the movie forthe first time was him sitting behind the wheel of an estate car,playing is undoubtedly most famous Clark Griswold character, which Ireally do not like. The more astonishing that it just takes a darkersetting, some good co-actors, and the fact that he is visible onlyabout half the time of the movie, and there you go, some fantasticChevy Chase acting over there. He played his character very authentic,although maybe a little too cool later on during the movie. Maybe thismovie cannot hold up to more popular Hollywood movies of its time, butit is a quite decent story with good acting and some very nice ideas. 7outta 10, with a +1 star understatement bonus.

Not Perfect but Some Good Stuff
Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) ** 1/2 (out of 4)Nick Halloway (Chevy Chase) accidentally gets turned invisible and soonan agent (Sam Neill) will stop at nothing to capture him. Nick soonstarts to fall for the one person (Daryl Hannah) who is willing to helphim. Whenever people talk about the films of either John Carpenter orChase, this one here seems to be overlooked. I'm not sure if it'sbecause the film isn't among either of their best films or because it'snot bad enough to warrant more discussion. Either way, the film isn'tnearly as bad as many have made it be but there's no question thatCarpenter and Chase just don't go together and in the end the film justcan't overcome them. I say that because there's really nothing herethat looks like a Carpenter movie. I don't want to use the director forhire slogan but it really does seem like he was just doing a job. Withthat said, he does a pretty good job with the material as he at leastkeeps the film moving at a nice pace and he also manages to handle someof the comedy situations a lot better than you'd think. Early on someof the comedy scenes are extremely good including one where Chase usesa drunk to get a taxi and go on a little trip. The timing by Chaseduring this sequence is extremely good but the set-up by Carpenter alsoworks. Where the film doesn't work is with the special agents. This iswhere I think the fighting and troubled production probably cost thefilm the most. This entire subplot just never comes to life and inreality it's pretty boring. I think a lot of better things could havehappened and one problem is that we just never get to know these guys,their intentions and you have to wonder why others aren't involved insuch a new story as an invisible man (not to mention what happens tothe building). Chase actually delivers a pretty good performance eventhough the screenplay, again thanks to the subplot, gives him little todo. He's at his best during the comedy moments but these quit after awhile. Hannah makes for a good love interest and has some nicechemistry with Chase. Neill is pretty much wasted in his role. Thespecial effects are certainly the highlight here as they look extremelygood even after all of these years. The effects certainly deserved moreattention when the film was originally released. MEMOIRS OF ANINVISIBLE MAN isn't a masterpiece and it doesn't quite reach a "good"level but I still think it offers enough for fans of the director andChase.

Patchy but generally quite funny
The invisible man concept lends itself to endless comic situations andthismovie produces quite a reasonable number of chuckles and the occasionalbelly laugh. The script is a little uneven and occasionally slow moving.Chevy Chase is perfect as the harassed invisible man, wanted by everyoneforhis body. Sam Neill is disappointing as the rogue CIA man - the NewZealander's attempts at a North American accent areembarrassing.

This is an often exciting and quite often funny movie. John Carpenters madea great movie here.

Wow! This blew sooooo bad!!!!!!
I'm sorry, but if you read this book first and then saw this movie????How in the Hell can you give it more than 1 or 2 stars. The book issoooo detailed about his life and trying to function in the world andthen the movie made it so ha ha comedy with Chevy Chase???? What theeff? Seriously, I don't get it. This was one of the best, coolest, mostdetailed pieces of writing I have ever read and then they turned itinto this silly movie???? If you are reading this review and even haveone solid idea of how cool writing can be when it's thoughtful and donewell, then you need to read this book first before you see the movie.Please! I swear! The book is a million times better than the movie.

Memoirs Of An Invisible Man
John Carpenter does it again! He knows exactly what to blend and how to keep a movie going. It felt as if there was always something going on throught the entire movie. I will say that he definitly put his weird twist to things, but other than that, it was a solid comedy/action film. Its different than what John is used to doing, but he pulled it off.

Underrated Carpenter Film!
Chevy Chase, Daryl Hannah and Sam Neill star in John Carpenter's 1992 sci-fi film based on the book. A businessman becomes invisible after he's in a lab accident. I've always liked this film and Chevy and Daryl have good chemistry. I notice this is the only one of John's films where his name isn't above or before the title. This dvd has good picture and sound plus some neat extras. I recommend this underratedCarpenter film.

Being Invisible Isnt What Its Cracked Up To Be
There are some interesting lessons to learn from this film....not thatany of us will ever get to learn this since we'd have to be able toturn invisible. However, when we think about all the fun we could havebeing invisible, we don't think of all the problems it would cause us.This movie brings some of those to light, so to speak.I enjoyed Chevy Chase and Daryl Hannah in here and I am not fans ofeither of them. Chase is funny in this film and does an outstanding jobplaying the role not just with humor but drama, romance and suspense.You get all of that in this movie. Hannah provides the beautiful faceand someone for Chevy to chase.This is another PG-13 movie that really should have been rated R withthe language, for one thing. Overall, it's a film whose title may soundhokey but the story is done well. It''s actually though-provoking.Being invisible would not be all fun and games.

Great movie, sad that nobody saw it.
This is the movie that established Chevy Chase as a serious actor. It's a pity nobody was watching. Chevy Chase plays Nick Halloway, a solitary man made invisible by a freak accident. Chevy does an incredible job conveying the horror of being completely unnoticed, and puts a dark, and credible spin on a rather outlandish plot. Sam Neil is the CIA agent that wants him for his 'gifts'. Like always, Sam hits it dead on. Daryl Hannah covers the love intrest, and plays the part to satisfaction, although it's fairly obvious she didn't land the part becuase of her acting talents. Special effects were the best for the time, and aren't dated to the point were they distract from the story. The plot is strong, and ever-present, and the direction is excellent thanks to John Carpenter. I strongly suggest everyone give this one a chance. You won't be disappointed.

Keeps you laughing!
One of Chevy Chase's Best! Hilarious, adventure/spy-like flick that keeps you interested and laughing throughout! While they could have definately toned down the foul language, this one has the perfect ingredients for an etertaining time. A-
