It manages to do right by both Abbott and Costello AND the Invisible Man, something none of their other horror pastiches did with such ease or good-natured fun.
My favorite of the three Abbott and Costello vs. Universal monsters films. There are jokes in this movie that are actually laugh-out loud funny, even by today's standards. Adults will enjoy the humor. Kids like the slapstick. It's a pleasant combination.
Mediocre A&C packed with corn and laughs.
Better than average Abbott and Costello vehicle.
My favorite of the duo's adventures into Universal Monster-Town.
The best of Abbott & Costello's follow-ups to meeting Frankenstein and way superior to all of the Invisible Man sequels, Meet the Invisible Man actually boasts the most laugh-out-loud moments from their monster team-ups. Oh, like the film before it, the story and action play out at an almost childlike level. Still, the boxing match alone demonstrates the high points of each franchise: great special effects and hilarious visual gags.
In this classic Universal horror-comedy, two bumbling private eyes (Abbott, Costello) help a man wrongly accused of murder (Arthur Franz) who has become invisible to help clear his name.
Filmgoers cant help but love this exceptional blending of comedy and horror. The comedy team fire on all cylinders as inept sleuths who just graduated from a detective correspondence school. What constitutes a story earns more plaudits than its contemporaries (the convict-clearing-his-name bit already got used in The Invisible Man's Return and The Invisible Man's Revenge) because its purposely played for laughs, not unintentionally.
Bottom line: H.G. Well Done
Just like every other Abbott and Costello movie, it's fun but very silly. Overall, it's entertaining, but it could have been better if it were a real invisible man movie instead of a comedy.
Another one of my faves. The boxing match in this one is hilarious. Very, very funny.
