[Boasts] a concise, witty script, an extremely likeable and attractive group of performers, and an abundance of exciting, well-staged kung-fu combat scenes.

Oh, gee, have I given too much away? Is there something in this lyrical narrative that can't be detected in the first five minutes?

Action is relatively mild for the genre and, unfortunately, so are the jokes.

Any inspiration there might have been as this film was prepared was somewhere along the way passed by in favor of the same old thing.

They surf in the first half and ninja in the second, but this light comedy adventure never really takes off.

It's a real riot when a guy goes tumbling and thudding down a 300-step flight of stone stairs only to climb back up and do it again. What inspired comedy!
