A sweet-natured Italian waiter named Pistachio Disguisey at his father Fabbrizio's restaurant, who happens to be a member of a family with supernatural skills of disguise. But moments later the patriarch of the Disguisey family is kidnapped Fabbrizio's former arch-enemy, Devlin Bowman, a criminal mastermind in an attempt to steal the world's most precious treasures from around the world. And it's up to Pistachio to track down Bowman and save his family before Bowman kills them! Written by

When Grandfather gives Pistachio the "nest in a box", the shots change. One is the tables with the red tablecloth, which we see at the beginning. At a different angle, we see tables with tan tablecloths. See more »
During the final credits, there are scenes from a wedding between Pistachio Disguisey and Jennifer, as well as Dana Carvey hamming it up in several disguises, some 'bloopers', and Dana acting out scenes from other movies/shows. See more »

Dana, what in goodness name were you THINKING?!??!?!
Oh my....was this a stinker.
I tired to give it as much of a chance as possible because..you cannot believe everything you read from critics..and you cannot believe everything you hear.
With "the Master of Disguise", you can. This was awful. I don't really think they meant it to be awful, I mean the story sounded good, I'm sure...on paper..to a bunch of film executives who were drunk at the time they heard it. Then it probably got by a bunch of other folks in various forms of development who thought, "This could really be a silly little film that would catch on". But it wasn't and didn't.
In some other universe, I wish there was a better script to punch up the story but they relied too much on Dana's characters that were god-awful and unfunny. This movie was painful to watch -- painful to see talented people on film in a very untalented movie. Someone should have pulled the plug..ceased production for a decade..something..anything.
But here we are. This is a major pass..under any circumstance.
