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.
A satisfying and sturdy vehicle for Farley that ought to please his fans, youngsters especially.
A silly movie, with silly jokes and a silly story. But the talents at work in it are not silly.
| Original Score: 4/5
The humor the premise throws off is supposed to be funny. It just isn't.
| Original Score: 3/4
Farley might want to be like John Candy, but, while Candy knew how to make an audience laugh, Farley keeps missing the mark.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
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.
| Original Score: D+
