    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    An awful, stillborn comedy assembled out of rusty spare parts from secret agent movies and run-of-the-mill ''Saturday Night Live'' skits.

    USA Today Claudia Puig

    Lacking even a hint of humor or a watchable story, Disguise has distinguished itself as the summer's worst movie.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Pants and wheezes and hurls itself exhausted across the finish line after barely 65 minutes of movie, and then follows it with 15 minutes of end credits in an attempt to clock in as a feature film.

    Chicago Tribune

    A disjointed film that, but for brief flashes of comedic verve, should skip theatrical release and go straight to video.

Iffy for 8+

A messy disappointment for Dana Carvey fans.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie is too vulgar for a PG rating and too dumb for audiences of any age. Pistachio is fascinated with women who have large rear ends and his 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.

  • Families can talk about how being able to imitate someone requires very careful observation.
