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 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.
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.
June 1, 2003
The worst film ever made: a film about idiots, made by idiots, for idiots.
December 24, 2002
Never have so many jokes clunked off the screen to such a silent audience. And never has 80 minutes seemed like such an eternity.
September 26, 2002
The Master of Disguise represents Adam Sandler's latest attempt to dumb down the universe.
August 20, 2002
In just over a minute you can see everything that's wrong with this one-joke farce.
August 8, 2002
An awful, stillborn comedy assembled out of rusty spare parts from secret agent movies and run-of-the-mill Saturday Night Live skits.
August 5, 2002
If The Master of Disguise had been a free cable movie -- well, I still wouldn't have recommended it.
August 4, 2002
A gimmick in search of a movie: how to get Carvey into as many silly costumes and deliver as many silly voices as possible, plot mechanics be damned.
August 3, 2002
The film contains no good jokes, no good scenes, barely a moment when Carvey's Saturday Night Live-honed mimicry rises above the level of embarrassment.
August 2, 2002
Lacking even a hint of humor or a watchable story, Disguise has distinguished itself as the summer's worst movie.
August 2, 2002
The only camouflage Carvey should now be considering is a paper bag to wear over his head when he goes out into public, to avoid being recognized as the man who bilked unsuspecting moviegoers.
August 2, 2002
It showcases Carvey's talent for voices, but not nearly enough and not without taxing every drop of one's patience to get to the good stuff.
August 2, 2002
At times, it actually hurts to watch.
August 2, 2002
Dana Carvey makes a lackadaisical 'comeback' as a man of a thousand faces, none of them funny.
