Our intrepid bumbling duo deliver the goods in one of the better offerings on their considerable CV. Here they are freshly qualified Private Investigators thrust into a murder investigation with an invisible man. That alone should tell you that the fun flows at a very decent clip, so with that I just need to say that some of the sequences here are comedy gold. Like a scene at a restaurant that is excellent, or Costello pretending to work the ball in the gym, and a final reel of a boxing match that really gets the laughter flowing. Watching these guys act as if with a real invisible man is wonderful, and of course the effects team also deserve praise for doing such a damn fine job with the invisible man of the piece.<br/><br/>Not quite as good as...Meet Frankenstein, but it&#39;s darn near close. 8/10

Bud Abbot and Lou Costello were an amazing comic team who endeared themselves to their fans with the kind of humor they projected; theirs was the kind of good fun with a lot of sight gags that made them one of the favorite duo in the movies for quite a while.<br/><br/>Universal, their studio, decided to showcased them in a series of movies that involved the &quot;monsters&quot; in its roster. This film is not one of those, but because of the usage of the amazing visual effects employed in using the visual effects in the &quot;Invisible Man&quot;, it became a winner from the start.<br/><br/>This was one of the best Abbot and Costello&#39;s best movies. Both do excellent work under the direction of Charles Lamont. Arthur Franz, who is not &quot;seen&quot; enough is good as Tommy, the man accused of a crime he didn&#39;t commit. Sheldon Leonard is one of the gangsters that are manipulating the boxing matches. Nancy Guild and Adele Jergens are welcome additions to the movie.<br/><br/>Best of all are the boxing scenes involving Lou Costello as the amazing new boxer, Lou, &quot;The Looper&quot;, who goes to beat Rocky, his better equipped opponent with a little help of his invisible friend.

I only watched this once, but that&#39;s my loss. I should see this again. Although not a big fan of these guys, I thought this was their funniest film, along with Abbot &amp; Costello Meet Frankenstein. Although the latter is considered their best and most popular movie, my vote just might go to this one.<br/><br/>This film was simply a lot of laughs from start to finish and the special-effects with the invisible man are good, too - even over 50 years later! The boxing scenes at the end of the movie are incredibly hokey but they are humorous as the &quot;invisible man&quot; helps Costello in the ring.<br/><br/>Sometimes silly, sometimes stupid but generally fast-moving, this film is highly- recommended for those looking for an innocent, old-time comedy with a surprising amount of laughs.
