Chris Farley never hit the mainstream and it was an utter shame. The films he starred in were not always a great showcase for him and Beverly Hill Ninja fits very much in the middle. Some of the laughs are only due to the comedic range of Farley, I always look at the Kevin James movies and know these were destined to be Farley roles. The plot is a little too safe to go anywhere different and it plays all the cliche beats right to the forgettable finale. Chris Rock showcases talent that would later shine brighter but like everyone around Farley, they suffer from the key central performance. I could fault a lot of Dugans boring direction but Farley gives everything, you could be forgiven for giving this film better teviews based on what he delivers. I liked the concept but it was too family oriented and easy to watch, Tommy Boy was nearly unpredictable until the usual happy ending finale. Not without flaws but younger audiences will love Farley in action. 14-07-2017.

I don't care what critics say, Chris Farley is funny as hell and this movie holds a dear place in my heart.

4/1/2017: There were a few funny moments, but generally too dumb. Farley was typecast as the fat stupid funny guy when he is so much more. Disappointing.

Beverly Hills Ninja is a similar movie to Spy Hard, The Naked Gun movies, Let's Be Cops, etc...so yes, it is a silly comedy! Chris Farley is hilarious in some parts and I think this comedy still holds up to this day. Are there better comedies out there? Yes, I think so but it's still a fun watch if you enjoy silliness in movies and if you like Chris Farley. 3/5 or 6/10 GOOD

This movie is hilarious and entertaining. The plot was good and so was Chris Farley. Chris Rock was good as well.

Not enough laughs for a ten minute skit let alone an hour and a half movie.

Tedious drivel. Repetitive acts of clumsy oafishness... How many times can you pirouette about non-sensically before the predictable demolition of the surrounding valuables!!

Ninjas are known for there grace, speed, and stealth. Who better than to cast as the opposite of all these qualities than Chris Farley in Beverly Hills Ninja. As expected this movie is filled with physical comedy, and that is one of Farley's strengths. He throws his body around like and moves like the Matt Foley and Chippendale skits of his SNL days. This movie is not as well rounded of a comedy or as funny as perhaps Tommy Boy, but Chris Farley fans will likely not skip on this, and nor should they.

I haven't laughed that many times in a movie in quite awhile. Chris Farley is hilarious! Don't look for depth here, just total sillyness.

Great comedy with the super goofy Chris Farley. He is very funny in this one where he plays a ninja. He gets a mission accidently from the wonderful Nicollette Sheridan to travel to america for some business. And there is problems all the time for him.. Great fun and worth seeing comedy. Chris Rock have a role aswell.

The humor the premise throws off is supposed to be funny.

This was a very funny movie! These critics who should probably stop watching comedies or just realize they've seen too many comedy movies to really find this funny and that most people haven't seen as many comedies as they have! Yes, there was some stupid stuff, but there's something stupid in EVERY comedy! So sue them!

childhood comedy

"Ever since Chris Farley played in Tommy Boy he was pretty much type-casted into the identical roles which will be entertaining to fans of that type of comedy"

*** 1/2

For a comedy I give this film a C (Common)
