The Disguisey family tree just dropped a nut... Pistachio. One minute he's an old woman. The next, a turtle man. Moments later, President George W. Bush. Who is this man, this myth, this master? He'sPistachio, the Master of Disguise. Pistachio Disguisey (Dana Carvey, Wayne's World) is a mild-mannered waiter whose life is about to change. Big time. Criminal mastermind Devlin Bowman (Brent Spiner, Star Trek: Nemesis) has kidnapped Pistachio's parents and is forcing his father Fabrizzio (James Brolin, Traffic) to steal priceless treasures from around the world. It's up to Pistachio to save the day, but how? His grandfather informs him of a secret family legacy: he's descended from a long line of brilliant disguise masters. Quickly trained in the ancient art of transformation and with the help of a sexy assistant (Jennifer Esposito, Don't Say a Word), a sacred pop-up book and a magic ball of knowledge, Pistachio just may surprise everyone. The Master of Disguise from Revolution Studios is an outrageous adventure comedy that's fun for the whole family.

Critics Consensus: An ill-concieved attempt to utilize Dana Carvey's talent for mimicry, The Master of Disguise is an irritating, witless farce weighted down by sophomoric gags.

A messy disappointment for Dana Carvey fans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Master of Disguise is vulgar and dumb. Pistachio is fascinated with women who have large rear ends, and he makes suggestive jokes when a character serves appetizers ("do you have a little wiener and tiny nuts?"). He disguises himself as a cow patty. And slapping an opponent while yelling "Who's your daddy?" is a way of showing manliness and competence. Pistachio himself is a annoyingly disturbing character, an odd child-man with an inexplicable accent and an unforgivable haircut.
