THE MASTER OF DISGUISE (2002 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

The Master of Disguise—smart, witty, fresh—performs as one of the best comedies released for a while. There are some risqué scenes, but overall Dana Carvey (as Pistachio Disguisey) gives us a royal treat in comedic diversity that is unbeatable. While the film did not receive positive reviews, this critic completely disagrees with the majority critical opinion and rates this film as really good work for Directors, Producers, actors and actresses. It provides a very good showcase for Dana Carvey’s talents. It’s re-watchable purely to ensure no piece of the very smartly written dialogue is missed.

Storyline

Secret Agent Fabbrizio Disguisey (James Brolin) does not want to pass on the family occupation to his children, moves to America, opens a restaurant, and raises his family. But, it’s not as easy as he thinks to break family tradition.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Perry Andelin Blake for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Jack Giarraputo and Adam Sandler for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Jennifer Baker (Jennifer Esposito), Grandfather Disguisey (Harold Gould), Devlen Bowman (Brent Spiner), Mother Disguisey (Edie McClurg), and Barney Baker (Austin Wolff).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. It’s a very smartly written comedy generously packed with terrific one-liners.
