Ninja Boy Wants to go to School
29 July 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Magic Kid II is the further adventures of the karate champion from Michigan who is now a movie star. Retained from the original cast of the first Magic Kid film are Ted Jan Roberts as the ninja boy and Stephen Furst as his nice, but weak agent/uncle.

If you didn't see the first film young Mr. Roberts helped his uncle out of some sticky situations with gamblers and in the process got himself discovered as a new action hero star with his uncle as his agent.

But now he wants a normal life, Ninja Boy as Roberts's character is known as would like to go to school. In fact he needs to go to school as studio tutor Dana Barron says because he's woefully behind in his subjects. But slave driving producer Hugo Napier will do about anything to keep him working continuously.

Magic Kid II is actually better than the original mainly because the annoying character of the old sister of Roberts is dropped. Roberts was an appealing juvenile and Stephen Furst is funny in a bumbling Lou Costello sort of way. Note that David Morse, Howie Mandel, and William Daniels, Furst's co-stars from St. Elsewhere are in this as a favor to their colleague as his poker playing cronies. Ain't gambling how Furst's problems started.

Recommended for the younger juvenile crowd.
