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.

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!!!!!

"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.

There are a lot of people who think that Dana Carvey is washed up. For them, THE MASTER OF DISGUISE has cemented that fact. After all, THE MASTER OF DISGUISE is not a great movie. In fact from a cynical, adult perspect many would say that it is a terrible movie. However, THE MASTER OF DISGUISE wasn't made for cynical adults. It was made for the youth of America. Sure there are references that only those over 18 will get (e.g. the allusions to The Sopranos), but those were thrown in to appease parents who would be watching this film with their children. Therefore, THE MASTER OF DISGUISE is brilliant work.
Brilliant? Brilliant? Yes, brilliant. Dana Carvey has made a movie that has made him an icon for a whole new generation of Americans. The popularity of this movie among youth is astounding; I haven't heard so much buzz with the youth of America since HOLES (the book, not the movie) came out. Kids all across the country are quoting this movie. Even though many adults have not allowed themselves to enjoy the movie, lines from THE MASTER OF DISGUISE will become a permanent part of the American lexicon. Even though the movie didn't do very well at the box office, based off the success of the video and how popular the movie is with youth I wouldn't doubt if a sequel will soon be in the works.
Based upon the usual technical aspects of filmmaking and the things that make a good movie, I wouldn't rate this movie above 3 stars. However, seeing how it has reintroduced me to the genius of Dana Carvey and the brilliant way that he has established his career for years to come, the movie gets 4 stars.

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.

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.
