Well, here I am again. This post it's not the most pleasant I ever made, but it's necessary. I always prefer coming here with recommendations of movies that I loved, with classics, with good films. But bringing you the not-so-good movies is something needed too. It's like when a friend screams warning you not to step on poop. I think you get what I'm trying to say, not nice but needed.
Before getting to the actual review some final reminders:
1) This post DOES NOT contain download links, just a review to guide your decisions about movies to watch.
2) This post MAY CONTAIN some spoilers
Original Title: The Master of Disguise
Duration: 80 minutes
MPAA's Rating: PG
Director: Perry Andelin Blake

Stars: Dana Carvey, Brent Spiner and Jennifer Esposito
Plot: An Italian waiter fights off a criminal mastermind with his inherited powers of disguise.
I rented this movie just when it just came out on video (I actually saw it on VHS). My expectations were somewhat high. (I know it's a PG rated family movie, a comedy, but yet my expectations were high.)
Dana Carvey was one of the funniest men on Earth. I mean, he IS Garth Algar for Pete's sake, the sidekick of Wayne Campbell, in 1992 histerical "Wayne's World". And he was part of the always funny staff of SNL. So, at least, I was expecting to laugh idiotically.
Like I said he was one of the funniest comedians. And I think that the key word here is WAS. I can't recall any other "comedy" or "funny" movie as unfunny as this one. I couldn't even laugh idiotically... the movie in itself was idiotic, but NOT FUNNY. No plot, no acting, no humor. I was at moments embarrassed and the only reason why I watched it until the end, it's the same reason why you stare shaking your head when you are watching a train wreck.
I did watch it, and for your own good, if you didn't see it yet, and if you want to hear an advice... DON'T.
