Welcome back! We’re glad you stuck around. This was a tough week for all of us at theCritical Breakdown, seeing that we had to suffer through The Master of Disguise (2002). If you’ve seen it, you’ll know what we’re talking about. If you hate yourself and want to waste 70ish minutes of your life, give it a watch.

We don’t really want to beat a dead horse, but it’s just such a poorly made film. If you peel back a few layers, you can see how this sophomoric idea was designed with kids in mind—but you could also decide that Dana Carvey has zero faith in what humor children find funny. Shallow gags only go so far!

Here’s some clips for you to watch if you hate yourself:

What other films could we have watched? It was slim pickens over here at the TCB headquarters, but there was really only one major contender. Daddy Day Camp looks a new type of terrible, and I almost wish we subjected ourselves to it now. Did Cuba make a pact with the devil?
Like we said—this week was cinematic diarrhea.

Anyway, we hope you come back next week for Getaway. We like to think things are looking up around here. They have to get better eventually, right?
