In the film, Pistachio does an imitation of Shrek for the little boy. Shrek is voiced by Mike Myers, whom Dana Carvey is well-known for starring alongside in Wayne's World (1992) and Wayne's World 2 (1993). See more »
At the start when Pistachio's dad is in the car, you see in the background that they are on a road, but when you see a wider outside shot, he isn't driving on a road. See more »
In the opening credits there is a book which contains three striped pages. The left pages show the cast and crew credits, the right pages figures and costumes. These stripes are turned over during the credits. See more »
In the UK, to avoid a '12A' rating, a series of headbutts were removed. This cuts seven seconds. See more »
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.
