Storyline

Brothers Johnny, an adolescent surf talent, and Adam, a preadolescent video-game addict, grow up care-free in California as adopted sons of Marines veteran Mac, inseparable friends of wacky local lout Iggy. Colonel Chi's military reign of terror culminates in their tiny birth-land, island state Patu San, off the Viet Nam coast. Former royal guards officer Zatch comes to summon the brothers to return and restore the pacific monarchy, because they are the sons of the murdered king, whom Mac took in exile for safety. They are joined on the adventurous journey by a bored Californian police detective whose attention was drawn by the ninja team that failed, thanks to Zatch, to murder the brothers in Mac's home.

I couldn't get enough!
29 July 2002 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

I am so tired of people just blatantly trashing movies. I loved Surf Ninjas, not because it had good filmography or because it had good literary or social value. The movie MADE ME LAUGH.<br> Seriously, folks, some movies are BAD, that's a given, but you don't put hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars into making and releasing a movie unless you are proud to have your name appear in the credits. <p>Surf Ninjas was the second movie that Rob Schneider ever appeared in and his performance was excellent and on par with his ability to wisecrack and make the audience laugh. Ernie Reyes Jr. (who was the Pizza boy in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II) played a decent lead role alongside his father, Ernie Reyes Sr. who played the shadowy protector of the wouldbe princes. Tone Loc adds another good role as the comedic police officer who joins the rag-tag group of adventurers. <p> All in all, the movie was made for kids. But I recently purchased it and it still makes me laugh.
