Released:
2002
Rating:
PG
The Master of Disguise stars Dana Carvey in this slapstick comedy for all ages. Pistachio Disguisey (Dana Carvey) is a waiter at his family's restaurant with a knack for impersonations and getting into trouble. When his father, Fabbrizio (James Brolin), and his mother (Edie McClurg) are kidnapped by master criminal Devlin Bowman (Brent Spiner), Pistachio discovers the long-hidden secret history of his family - they are actually part of a long line of spies known as the Masters of Disguise. With Bowman forcing Fabbrizio to steal priceless artifacts and documents, Pistachio's grandfather (Harold Gould) must teach him the ways of the Masters of Disguise. Pistachio will have to summon every ounce of effort and skill to finish his training in time to stop Bowman's plot and save his family. Legendary Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey brings his talent for impersonation and special brand of humor to this comically absurd movie.
