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.

The humor the premise throws off is supposed to be funny. It just isn't.

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.
