Invisible Dad is a 1998 comedy sci-fi film about a teenage girl, Diane Stockwell (portrayed by Laura Rogers), who moved to a new town with her father, Dr. Stanley Stockwell (portrayed by Charles Dierkop), an eccentric scientist who experiments with invisibility. The movie also features Karen Black as Dr. Stockwell's ex-wife, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn as a television news reporter, and Daran Norris as the voice of the Invisible Dad.
The movie opens with Dr. Stockwell creating a formula that can turn a person invisible. However, when his lab is robbed by a criminal, the formula is stolen, and Dr. Stockwell becomes invisible himself. Diane discovers her father's invisibility and uses it to help her team win a science fair by impressing the judges with her invisible dad's abilities. However, things take a turn for the worse when the criminal who stole the formula demands the invisibility formula in exchange for Dr. Stockwell's safety.
The movie humorously explores the concept of invisibility and the hilarity that can ensue when someone is invisible but still has a voice. Daran Norris, who voices the invisible dad, delivers some of the movie's funniest lines and adds to the overall entertainment. Charles Dierkop also does a great job with his role, delivering great comedic timing and facial expressions in scenes where he is invisible, appearing as just his clothing items.
Karen Black's character, Dr. Stockwell's ex-wife, adds a bit of drama to the movie. Her character is a news reporter who is critical of Dr. Stockwell's work and doesn't believe that he can make people invisible. She eventually discovers that he can, leading to an amusing interview where she attempts to interview an invisible Dr. Stockwell.
Invisible Dad explores family relationships and parental responsibilities. Diane's father is always busy with his scientific experiments, leaving her feeling neglected. She wants nothing more than for her father to become visible and spend time with her. This adds an emotional aspect to the movie, making it more than just a fun sci-fi comedy.
Overall, Invisible Dad is a fun movie that all ages can enjoy. It is a lighthearted and entertaining film that explores the concept of invisibility in a humorous way. Despite its age, it remains a classic sci-fi comedy that is worth watching.
Invisible Dad is a 1998 kids & family movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.0.
