Invisible Mom is a family comedy film released in 1996, directed by Fred Olen Ray and starring Dee Wallace, Barry Livingston, Trenton Knight, and Giuseppe Andrews. The story revolves around a family of four- Timmy, his younger sister Lisa, their mother Diane, and their father Bob. The film opens with Diane Siegel, a successful scientist, struggling with work-life balance as she juggles her career and family responsibilities. Meanwhile, her husband Bob, a struggling musician, is offered to go on tour with his band, leaving the family behind. In a bid to prove her scientific prowess, Diane invents an invisibility formula that she tests on herself, turning invisible accidentally. She ends up stuck in this form, leaving her puzzled family to deal with her sudden disappearance.

The movie then follows the adventures of the Siegel family as they struggle to keep their lives relatively normal while also trying to find a way to bring their mom back. Timmy and Lisa, initially skeptical of their invisible mom's presence, soon realize her invisibility could be their saving grace. They use her ability to their advantage while dealing with bullies and completing mundane tasks like chores.

However, things take a turn for the worse when two robbers break into the Siegel house and hold the children hostage. The children fear for their safety as they have no idea how to defend themselves, but their invisible mom comes to the rescue, using her invisibility to outwit and defeat the robbers.

As the movie progresses, they discover that Diane's invisibility was caused by a minor mistake in the formula, and they try to figure out how to bring her back to the visible world. The family soon manages to correct the formula and successfully bring Diane back to her original form.

Throughout the film, the audience is treated to wholesome moments of family bonding, where the Siegel family sticks together through thick and thin, albeit in a slightly unconventional invisible form. Invisible Mom is a light-hearted comedy that presents the perfect blend of intrigue, humor, and adventure for kids and adults alike.

Dee Wallace delivers an outstanding performance as Diane; her portrayal of a loving mother and a scientist struggling to balance her personal and professional lives is both relatable and convincing. Barry Livingston, Trenton Knight, and Giuseppe Andrews also give noteworthy performances, with Andrews playing the role of a dimwitted bully to perfection.

The film's special effects are relatively modest due to budget constraints, but they still add a touch of believability to the story. The invisible effects are executed modestly, and the actors' performances help to fill in any gaps that the special effects leave behind. The movie's soundtrack is also worth mentioning as it is composed of catchy tunes that help to accentuate the film's comedic tone.

Invisible Mom is a perfect film for families looking for light-hearted entertainment to enjoy together. The film's humor and positive message of family togetherness make it a classic that still holds up today. Overall, Invisible Mom is a fun-filled family comedy with a heartwarming message that resonates with audiences of all ages.
