Read these zingers for how bad "Master of Disguise" is

I was browsing rottentomatoes.com and notice a movie called Master of Disguisewith Dana Carvey in it. It had a rating of 1%. With that low of a score I had to click and see some of the review quotes. Man are they funny:


"It doesn't matter that the film is less than 90 minutes. It still feels like a prison stretch."
-- Elvis Mitchell, NEW YORK TIMES


"At times, it actually hurts to watch."
-- Mick LaSalle, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE


"No one but a convict guilty of some truly heinous crime should have to sit through The Master of Disguise."
-- Jonathan Foreman, NEW YORK POST


and my favorate:


If The Master of Disguise had been a free cable movie -- well, I still wouldn’t have recommended it."
-- Richard Roeper, EBERT & ROEPER



I may have to rent this.

All these bad reviews just make me want to see this.

That Richard Roeper quote was hilarious.

Still, it makes me want to see this and the other abused movie "Vulger the Clown".

Well, you can never trust critics.

Except this time...

The zingers are all accurate.

However, the scene where Carvey does Robert Shaw is worth the rental IMHO.

Everything else in the film is PURE D CRAP!

except Jennifer Espisito. She is very easy on the eyes.

I was checking out boxofficemojo and it looks like this movie wasn't a bomb. It made over $40 million.
