Movie Info

Sam Cooper (Steve Gutenberg) is an attaché in the U.S. State Department when, on the day before his wedding, a dying scientist hands him a formula that induces invisibility, and Sam finds himself fleeing with the maid of honor to escape both Russian and U.S. agents. Hotly pursued by everyone, Sam has to use the formula on himself, inviting a series of minor disasters. The very decision to make a movie about an invisible man in 3-D should have warned of trouble ahead.

Critic Reviews for The Man Who Wasn't There

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

This is a dead movie. I don't know exactly when it passed away, but I think it was dead by the time they started filming it, and it may have died even earlier.

It's hard to know where to begin in talking about what exactly is wrong with 'The Man Who Wasn't There' because there's really nothing right with it.
