->''"If ''The Master Of Disguise'' had been a free cable movie, well, I still wouldn't have recommended it."''

->''"I wouldn't even recommend it if you cut it up and made it into ukulele picks. This movie, it never ended and it was only 80 minutes long!"''

While critically panned, it made triple it's budget back at the box office.

A film starring Creator/DanaCarvey as Pistachio Disguisey, a bumbling Italian American waiter working at his father's restaurant. He has a bad habit of mimicking people unintentionally. His mother and father are kidnapped one night, by mysterious bad guys. So along comes his Grandfather who reveals that the whole paternal family line are natural [[TitleDrop masters of disguise]] who utilise a mysterious transformative magic called 'Energico'. His father never told him because he didn't want his son to live a life full of dangerous enemies. But to get his father back he must train in the art of subterfuge, learn the Disguisey martial art (consisting of slaps and blocks to humiliate your opponent) and learn to use the tools of the trade, found in his father's secret lair (behind an incredibly elaborate bookshelf in the attic).

* BillingDisplacement: The director himself actually lampshades this on the DVD commentary, regarding Kenan Thompson's billing during the end titles as part of the main cast, despite his appearance being nothing more than a glorified cameo towards the end of the movie (and is joked that his spot during the end titles is just as long as his actual appearance in the movie itself was).

* PostCreditsScene: The credits are filled with outtakes and deleted scenes in order to pad out the running time. As the Nostalgia Critic noted, it's like the film is effectively forcing you to watch the DVD special features, knowing you will never buy it.
