Pistachio Disguisey (Dana Carvey), is a sweet-natured Italian waiter working for his father, Fabbrizio (James Brolin). At his father's restaurant, Pistachio can't figure out why he compulsively mimics his customers and desires to change his appearance. What he doesn't know yet is that these traits are part of the Diguisey family secret legacy.
Fabbrizio has never told his son that he comes from a long line of masters of disguise able to mask themselves as almost anyone or anything by harnessing the great power of 'Energico'. Such a talent makes Fabbrizio the kidnapping target of his former archenemy Devlin Bowman (Brent Spinner), a criminal mastermind with a plot to steal the world's most precious treasures.
At first Pistachio is not very effective as he attempts to control his inherited power, but soon, with the help of beautiful assistant Jennifer (Jennifer Esposito), he's spinning through a manic blur of eccentric characterisations in an attempt to track down Devlin Bowman and save his parents.
But will this new Master of Disguise be too late?
