The Master of Disguise [DVD] [2002]

Dana Carvey stars in the family-friendly comedy Master of Disguise, directed by Perry Andelin Blake and executive-produced by Adam Sandler. Columbia TriStar Home Video presents the film with a standard full-frame transfer that does not preserve the original aspect ratio. The Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround soundtrack is presented in English, French, and Spanish. Optional subtitles are available in all three languages. Surprisingly, this disc has a lot of special features. First of all, director Blake and star Carvey provide a silly audio commentary track. The three production featurettes are called "The Magic of Disguise," "Identity Crisis," and "Man of a Thousand Faces." Each featurette contains behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew. Other special features include alternate and deleted scenes, a music video for "M.A.S.T.E.R. Part 2" by Play and Lil Fizz, and a few theatrical trailers. This disc can only be recommended to small children or those with an interest in makeup effects.

Synopsis

Master of Disguise
Dana Carvey ventures into the world of PG-rated, family-oriented entertainment as star and co-writer of this light adventure comedy, which requires the actor to assume more than three dozen different identities. Carvey's primary role in Master of Disguise, however, is that of Pistachio Disguisey, an ordinary waiter with a hidden, mostly untapped talent for transforming himself into any persona he wishes. When his kindly parents, Mama (Edie McClurg) and Frabbrizio (James Brolin), are kidnapped by the evil thief Devlin (Brent Spiner), the usually meek Pistachio is forced to rescue them. Enlisting the help of his grandfather (Harold Gould), Pistachio learns that he is one of a long line of family members to have the power of "Energico," a mystical means of changing one's identity to suit any given situation, and Pistachio learns to use these powers to their fullest to defeat Devlin and win back his folks. Carvey's original idea for Master of Disguise was helped to the screen by executive producer Adam Sandler, a buddy of his from their time on NBC's Saturday Night Live. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
