A silly movie, with silly jokes and a silly story. But the talents at work in it are not silly.

Disappointing Farley vehicle. Not much humor, and the action isn't much.

Chris Farley may not have been the world's most versatile comedian, but he sure as heck deserved better material than THIS!

Farley, a real lightweight compared to such late, great predecessors John Belushi and John Candy, brings none of Belushi's edgy intelligence, nor Candy's gentle pathos to this comic caricature.

Farley might want to be like John Candy, but, while Candy knew how to make an audience laugh, Farley keeps missing the mark.

This formulaic tale of a ninja klutz trying to break a counterfeit ring can be recommended only to undemanding children, and even they may find it a drag.
