Master of Disguise

Master of Disguise ★½ 2002 (PG)

This disjointed patchwork of lame comedy routines tries to masquerade as “family friendly” entertainment, but is revealed to be a mess that kids may tolerate and parents will hate. Pistachio Disguisey (Carvey) is a waiter at his father Fabbrizio's (Brolin) restaurant, where he displays a talent for mimicking all the customers. Turns out this is a family legacy, coveted by flatulent criminal Devlin Bowman (Spiner) who kidnaps Fabbrizio. So Pistachio has to get his act together, rescue dad, and defeat Devlin. There is no saving the movie, however. Running time is actually padded with 15 minutes of credits and out-takes. 80m/C VHS, DVD . US Dana Carvey, Jennifer Esposito, Brent Spiner, James Brolin, Edie McClurg, Harold Gould, Maria Canals, Austin Wolff; D: Perry Andelin Blake; W: Dana Carvey, Harris Goldberg; C: Peter Lyons Collister; M: Marc Ellis.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
