The Master of Disguise

Critics Consensus

An ill-concieved attempt to utilize Dana Carvey's talent for mimicry, The Master of Disguise is an irritating, witless farce weighted down by sophomoric gags.

Movie Info

Pistachio Disguisey (Dana Carvey), a genial waiter at his father Frabbrizio's (James Brolin) Italian restaurant, possesses an uncanny knack for mimicry. What he doesn't know is that his talent is genetic, and that he is the descendent of a long line of "Masters of Disguise," all of whom have inherited the secret family gift known as Energico. Initially, Pistachio is a klutz, but little by little, he learns to harness his inherited power, and sallies forth to utilize Energico to its fullest.

  • A film about as funny as a seeping wound.

  • Such a sad irony that Dana Carvey, who's made his name bringing celebrities to life with uncanny impersonations, should make such a lifeless movie based on characters of his own creation.

  • ... Mike Myers has already milked this type of gag-dense character comedy bone dry.

    March 7, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • George W. Bush in the flesh would have been much funnier than this movie's impersonation.

    January 5, 2007 | Full Review…
  • There follows a fusillade of farts, dud sight gags and inconsequential butt jokes.

  • Never have so many jokes clunked off the screen to such a silent audience. And never has 80 minutes seemed like such an eternity.

    Even the name is bad, my gosh. Toilet humour over used, characters were stereotypical, I don't know who to blame for this nasty piece of crap. I mean, there are the good intentions of raising the bar and making it a funny film, but it's a pure schlock crap.

    More like Master of Lousy Outdated Fart Jokes. No other way to put it for this comedic failure.

    The Master of Disguise is really the master. He use the disguise of a funny movie, but is just a sad way to lose time. Rotten.
