    I just rented MOD last night and was horrified as to how bad this flick was. It was around 50 min. before my first laugh and that was more of a "I can't beleive this" kinda laugh after the 3rd time Brent Spiner did the laughing fart joke. I didn't even finish watching it. So before I throw anymore $ away can I expect Pluto Nash to be similar?[​IMG]

    Brent Spiner was in this? Poor guy, can't he get better roles? He doesn't deserve this.

    Master of Disguise is a 1.85:1 film, so it's not cropped neatly on the sides. www.widescreenmuseum.com explains.

    Also, this question cannot be answered. It's like determining who is less funny: Yahoo Serious or Carrot Top.

    first laugh 50 minutes in?

    the movie was over 15 minutes later so i guess that was your only laaugh.

    i saw this too. free rental.

    it was the worst movie i ever saw.

    i new it would be bad. but not that bad.

    i work at a video store and i beg people not to rent it.

    other then about 3 good impersinations(ugh sp) by carvey. they were good but not funny.

    there was nothing worthwhile about this movie.

    65 minutes long then 15 minutes of credits.
    over the credits we get to see more not funny scenes deleted from the movie. and as a bonus, durring this we also get out takes and flubs.

    what a waste.

    carvey should apoligize for this piece of mud.

    Both movies really s*ck.

    Difference is:

    Carvey is still a funny man.

    Murphy is surely NOT.

    Poor Dana Carvey. The man is immensely talented. I am a huge fan of his. I think he is much funnier than Mike Myers given the correct project. Check out his HBO special from a about six or seven years ago to find out how funny this guy truly is. His ill-fated prime time show was extremely funny also, even though it only lasted like four episodes. Every time he was on Dennis Miller Live he was great.

    However, is films are simply dreadful. I don't think he excells at childrens films in particular. His unique skills are difficult to put to great use in a film situation. He thrives in stand up and sketch comedy. He should have a comedy show on HBO, or even Comedy Central. I bet he would kill the competition in this type of setting.

    Kung Pow was hilarious for the first 30 minutes! You guys are crazy. [​IMG] (It is, of course, not for everyone. Hee hee.)

    I didn't see MOD, but I did see Pluto Nash. It's a curious piece. It's not really funny, although it has some funny bits. The interesting thing is that someone (I'm guessing the original writer and the production designer) put a lot of thought into creating the world of the movie--the SCIENCE FICTION of the movie is very good. If they'd done it as a straight action-thriller, it probably could have been really good. (It even has a neat twist at the end.)

    Shut up Aaron. Don't even try to argue the technical or writing achievements of Pluto Nash.
