In all its corny mayhem, Surf Ninjas manages to have some fun mixed in with the parts that wipe out.

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

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.

Another of Hollywood's efforts to prove that the American mall mentality is at home in any corner of the globe.

What do ninjas and surfers have to do with each other? You've got me, and I heroically sat through all of Surf Ninjas.

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?
