Young Doug's slightly weird father turns invisible after one of his inventions goes haywire -- and that's just the beginning of Doug's wild ride. Doug thinks his dad's pretty cool when he uses his invisibility to put an end to a co-worker's evil plans, but it soon becomes apparent that his father's in danger, and the youth must find a way to change him back to normal before it's too late. Karen Black, Russ Tamblyn and Ross Hagen star.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Invisible Dad is a highly improbable, groan-worthy, low-budget movie about a kid who accidently renders his father invisible, and it ends up being far more inadvertently hilarious than it ever could have intended. This late-1990s flop features terrible special effects, mostly terrible acting, a needlessly convoluted plot, and some risqué scenes, such as when a tween boy lusts after women in bikinis and a man rips a woman's dress off as he grabs on to her to break his fall (she's wearing a slip). There's light adult drinking and a few instances of profanity ("hell"). The film attempts to impart some positive messages about learning for the sake of it and fighting for yourself when you've been wronged, but mostly it's a spectacle of B-movie antics that are almost so bad they're good.
