Editorial Reviews

For grown-up fans of Dana Carvey, this train wreck of a comedy, is, in the words of Carvey's SNL Ross Perot impression, just sad. But kids love it! Carvey's chameleonesque Pistachio Disguisey is an endearing klutz-turned-hero in the classic Jerry Lewis tradition. So perhaps they won't get the Tony Montana Scarface reference. But his Turtle man is a hoot ("Am I not turtle enough?" is the catchphrase that swept the playgrounds). And when all else fails (and it nearly does), Brent Spiner shows up to steal his scenes as the villain who has a penchant for passing gas after laughing maniacally. No doubt hopes for an Austin Powers-like franchise have been dashed. Certainly, Master, with its cameos by Bo Derek, Jessica Simpson, and Jesse Ventura, lacks Goldmember's A-list star power. But it is way more family-friendly, and that will favorably impress parents. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

One minute he's an old woman. The next, a turtle man. Moments later, President George W. Bush. Who is this many, this myth, this master? He's Pistachio, the Master of Disguise. Pistachio Disguisey is a mild-mannered waiter whose life is about to change. Big time. Criminal mastermind Devlin Bowman has kidnapped Pistachio's parents and is forcing his father Fabrizzio to steal priceless treasures from around thew world. It's up to Pistachio to save the day, but how? His grandfather informs him of a secret family legacy: he's descended from a long line of brilliant disguise master. Quickly trained in an ancient art of transformation and with the help of a sexy assistant, a sacred pop-up book and a magic ball of knowledge, Pistachio just may surprise everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Kid's Movie! September 3, 2002
I read all the horrible reviews in the newspapers, but went anyway when the temperature got over 100 and there was nothing else to take the kids (4, 9,10) to see. I'd have to say all the reviewers missed the point of this movie. It's a wonderful movie for the right audience; kids about 12 and under. I guess that many people see Dana Carvey's name and expect to find a movie targeted to the Wayne's World/ Austin Powers demographic but that simply is not the case. The kids were laughing out loud many times during the movie and the end credits. The story is easy enough to follow, the humor in not too cruel or scatological, and the jokes are right up a kid's alley.
I think the filmmakers blew it a bit in the trailers for the flick. Too many adults went expecting this would be for them, but come to think of it, the only time I saw previews for this was during movies for kids. Dads, take your younger children and they'll have a great time. My 4 year olds favorite part was the way the evil villain kept ending his devious laugh. It made me laugh too.

5.0 out of 5 stars got milk? January 29, 2003
"Master of Disguise" is not a GREAT MOVIE.
I understand if people don't like it.
It is surreal and you never know what is going to happen in the very next minute.
It is ridiculous, confusing, fast paced, downright stupid, and childish.

These are the things that made me love it.

Dana Carvey has made a crazy movie for kids who love absurd humour.
If you remember making up stories with your siblings or friends, stories that made you shoot milk out your collective noses - but made your parents roll their eyes because you were "acting silly" - then you will understand "Master of Disguise".

I can't remember the last time I laughed this hard in a movie theatre. I couldn't breathe at certain points. I should warn you, in a theatre full of kids and adults I was 1 of only 3 people laughing. (No, I wasn't stoned or drunk).

This is a movie made with Dana's kids in mind.
I enjoyed it as if I was 7 years old again.
I hope this movie has a long life on video.
I hope you laugh until milk shoots out your nose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great kid's movie and parent's guilty pleasure February 4, 2003
By A Customer
I had heard horrible reviews about this movie constantly, but my kids and I laughed so hard at the previews we just had to watch it. I am a HUGE Dana Carvey fan, but I was worried that this would be a 2 hour long fart and stupid joke fest. I was sure that there would be mild profanity, and that is the main reason I was leary about having my kids watch it. We never saw it in the theatre, but rented the DVD. We all (including mom) laughed so hard we were sick. It is totally CLEAN!!!! Except for the "little weiner and tiny nuts" part which is so mild and hysterically funny. We have watched this over and over and still belly laugh over every funny part (even the farts that I was dreading). I am so disappointed that this didn't do so well on the theatres. I hope there is a sequel!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie for the Younguns February 15, 2003
I enjoy Dana Carvey's work. When my boys ages 5,7,9 saw the previews of this movie they HAD to see it. I was a little disappointed as an adult who is used to Dana Carvey on SNL. But I was amazed that there wasnt ONE, not ONE curse word or profanity of any kind in the entire movie. Some of the simplest scenes were hilarious while some of the more elaborate were a yawn. If you have children, ages 4-12, they will LOVE this movie. I couldnt wait to get it on DVD. Well done for the younger set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all, breaks the mold November 7, 2003
Finally, a break from the let's-make-money-so-don't depart-from-the-formula films for kids featuring super evil characters, fractured families, and redundant plots. Dana Carvey comes to the rescue! No worries here--completely succeeds for families and children (and it says so right on the box, folks, even a Canadian-G rating). It's not deep, but plenty of creative laughs. We only hope more movies like this are forthcoming and this venture doesn't get critiqued into submission. Carvey's legend grows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking things too literally August 31, 2003
By A Customer
Some of you ADULT reviewers sound like you're trying to rate a KIDS movie like it's aimed at adults. Don't tell me you forgot what it was like being a kid. Carvey was doing something for the kids for a change, and did them quite a favor. If I would have seen this at, say, age 8, I would've laughed myself into a coma. I'm grown up and I still got a bang out of it, but that's me. Although I am proud of the reviewers that did take thier minds off themselves and consider the children. For the rest, try entering things with a clear mind, you may find yourselves not so quick to pass judgements.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Dana and Great Fun September 6, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My children (8 and 10) both enjoyed this film - and so did I. The great references to classic films has spawned a kind of mini film festival in our house. They now know about Jaws and other great films made before they were born.
Dana Carvey has had trouble finding a good vehicle that lets him express his incredible comedic talent; maybe there will be better ones, but my kids and I enjoyed this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Shut-your-brain-off" Comedy February 13, 2003
By Rizzo
Master of Disguise is not for everyone. If you are in to sophisticated comedy...look elsewhere. This is complete "stupid funny" comedy, if you don't like that, don't bother watching this. However, if you are in to movies like "Galaxy Quest" or "Mystery Men" then give this one a shot. Carvey does hilarious impressions of a lot of well-known people, and that in itself is funny, who needs a solid plot or Oscar-worthy acting? Sit back, forget the work day, and enjoy a good laugh...just remember to shut off your brain.
