Dana Carvey ventures into the world of PG-rated, family-oriented entertainment as star and co-writer of this light adventure comedy, which requires the actor to assume more than three dozen different identities. Carvey's primary role in Master of Disguise, however, is that of Pistachio Disguisey, an ordinary waiter with a hidden, mostly untapped talent for transforming himself into any persona he wishes. When his kindly parents, Mama (Edie McClurg) and Frabbrizio (James Brolin), are kidnapped by the evil thief Devlin (Brent Spiner), the usually meek Pistachio is forced to rescue them. Enlisting the help of his grandfather (Harold Gould), Pistachio learns that he is one of a long line of family members to have the power of "Energico," a mystical means of changing one's identity to suit any given situation, and Pistachio learns to use these powers to their fullest to defeat Devlin and win back his folks. Carvey's original idea for Master of Disguise was helped to the screen by executive producer Adam Sandler, a buddy of his from their time on NBC's Saturday Night Live. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

A new comedy franchise is born... by Emomovieluver April 10, 2003 - 12:54 PM PDT

The first thought to pop into my mind when I first saw "The Master of Disguise" is this movie is for Dana Carvey what Austin Powers is for Mike Myers. Indeed "TMOD" is sure to spawn a new comedy franchise for Carvey and to me "TMOD" is more creative and even more hilarious that Austin Powers mainly due to Carvey's amazing talent at impressionations. Carvey excels, you can't help but fall in love with the luscious Jennifer Esposito and even Brolin and Spiner perform their roles with gusto! Be sure to check out the deleted scenes narrated by Carvey's hysterical turtle character.
