Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

By conventional standards, this is a terrible movie. The acting is green and strangely overdone, the plot is amateurish, and the invisibility is barely a notch above hats and jackets held by fishing wire. There's a 1990s risqué quality to the film, with a son obsessed with pretty women in bikinis splashing in pools and characters drinking throughout. It sets a new low bar for movies featuring invisible characters, but there's also a so-bad-it's-good charm here in the sheer spectacle of the slapdash way it's put together. Parents may groan, but young kids might appreciate the silliness.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
