In a 40-year career in horror, David Cronenberg never dreamed up an image as chilling or stomach-churning as Dana Carvey as a human turtle.
May 2, 2014
While some of the make-up effects are mildly diverting (Carvey disguises himself as a turtle and a cherry pie), they hardly make up for the lame screenplay, barely coherent plot and increasingly desperate mugging.
May 29, 2013
If Carvey's looking for a comeback, then playing a cloying dimwit with an annoying accent isn't the place to start.
May 29, 2013
The humor here is relentlessly juvenile, and not even the kids in the audience seemed to like it much.
May 29, 2013
It is not as funny as it could be, and none of it makes sense, especially Pistachio's ability to mimic any dialect but standard US English. But his versatility is astonishing.
May 29, 2013
A film about as funny as a seeping wound.
May 29, 2013
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.
December 26, 2010
A messy disappointment for Dana Carvey fans.
April 29, 2009
This is a bad flick that will appeal mostly to kids ranging from ages 5-11, but adults will leave halfway through. I found it almost tolerable.
April 22, 2008
This misfiring disaster shows just how over-estimated Carvey's writing and acting talent has been.
March 7, 2007
... Mike Myers has already milked this type of gag-dense character comedy bone dry.
January 5, 2007
George W. Bush in the flesh would have been much funnier than this movie's impersonation.
February 9, 2006
There follows a fusillade of farts, dud sight gags and inconsequential butt jokes.
July 25, 2004
Master of Disguise may be a real hoot, if you're under 10 years old, or drunk, or both. Not a bad time-waster on a rainy Sunday, but a time-waster nonetheless.
January 15, 2004
It is virtually impossible to watch The Master of Disguise and not feel embarrassed for stars Dana Carvey, Jennifer Esposito, and Brent Spiner.
June 26, 2003
In the end, Dana Carvey is left wishing he could disguise himself as Mike Myers, or himself circa 1986. At least then, he would be funny again.
June 1, 2003
The worst film ever made: a film about idiots, made by idiots, for idiots.
May 20, 2003
The fart jokes get the biggest laughs.
February 8, 2003
...Occasional moments of Carvey genius (many of which are seen in the trailer) sprinkled sparsely throughout a senseless, leaden production...
January 26, 2003
It is cut with all the precision and timing of an irritating kids' TV show, with kids themselves in charge of the production, and their pets operating the equipment.
