The Invisible

I pick and choose the movies I go to, I don’t have to see everything, so it’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie this bad.  I am a huge fan of Marcia Gay Harden, and I have no idea what she was thinking when she agreed to do “The Invisible.”  She has a small role, and not much going on with her character, except for one breakdown scene which was supposed to be heartbreaking but for some reason had the audience in hysterics.  There were lots of moments when the audience broke out laughing in scenes that were supposed to be chilling or serious.

The story is bizarre – good guy with dead dad meets bad girl with absent mother – bad girl beats up good guy to the point of unconscious and leaves him for dead.  Good guy’s “spirit” falls for bad girl, bad girl “saves” good guy, then dies.

There are so many things that don’t make sense throughout the whole movie.  I found myself rolling my eyes and making script notes in my head for the writers.

I don’t think teens will be interested in this movie – even though it’s PG-13 and clearly aimed at that audience.  The teens who were in the theatre with me were the ones who were laughing the most in the inappropriate places.
