No where near as good as.......


Chevy's other movies.....especially the invisible man, which in some ways its similair. Average guy, beset by extraordinary problem, embarasses know it all, tough guy and gets the girl in the end.

I'd give invisible man a much higher grade. MP is no better than a 3 or 4.

I haven't seen Memoirs of an Invisible Man, but to be honest, I actually liked Modern Problems quite a bit, actually. It's actually a favorite of mine. No, it's not Oscar worthy, but it's still fun to watch.

Me too. I don't know why I like this film, but its a fun..80's kinda guilty pleasure. Over the top in some places, but a lot of nonsense. Fun. The ballet scene is to die for.

It takes you an hour to watch a minute go by!

I thought the pacing of the film was way off, and not nearly as funny as much of Chase's other works from the era, but the ballet scene was really funny.

Conquer your fear, and I promise you, you will conquer death.
