Goofs

One of the precious items depicted in the film was the Apollo 11 lunar module, which landed the first humans on the moon. The bottom half of Apollo 11 (the Descent Module) is still sitting on the moon today - it was for descent only. The top half, the Ascent Module, was jettisoned into space before the astronauts descended back to earth. So it is impossible for the actual Apollo 11 to be stolen as depicted in the film.

Master of Disaster
28 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dana Carvey is an extremely talented comedian,which makes it a shame that his efforts since his Saturday Night Live days have fallen,at least for the most part,miserably flat.The latest effort,The Master of Disguise,is no exception.This film is horrid from top to bottom.It is a poor execution of what was a poor story idea to begin with.Executive Producer Adam Sandler's ideas about comedy may work when Sandler himself is in the film,but he has yet to produce a good effort when solely behind the camera.Carvey's efforts to make this a good film are indeed valiant,but he can't do it alone.Even the character names (Pistachio Disguisey?) are evidence that not a lot thought were given to them.The supporting cast seems lost to the point where they don't give good support at all.Don't waste your time or your money.Here's hoping that Dana Carvey will strike creative gold in the near future.He deserves it.
