Maybe Death did Chris Farley a favor by sparing him from making more shit like this

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.

A satisfying and sturdy vehicle for Farley that ought to please his fans, youngsters especially.

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.

There's at least one consolation: David Spade is not in the movie.

It's hard to believe that anything could make a moviegoer miss the presence of the always-obnoxious David Spade, but this stinker, Farley's first starring film without his erstwhile comedy partner, manages to do the trick.

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

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