Storyline

Following a ship wreck, a baby is rescued by a clan of Ninja warriors and raised by them as one of their own. But Haru, as he is called, never quite fits in, nor does he manage to make a worthy Ninja. However, the good-natured and persevering Haru, in his own bumbling way, and with some help from Gobei, manages to prove himself to be a winner in the end. Written by Jeff Hole <jeffhole@aol.com>

Goofs

When Haru somersaults down to fight with the Ninjas it is obviously a much thinner stunt double. (However, given the comedic nature of the film this may have been a deliberate joke). See more »

Quotes

Haru: You may subject me to any torture you can think of, but a ninja does not talk!
Martin Tanley: Ninja? You're a ninja? You're the big fat ninja everyone's talking about, aren't you?

I love this movie/
28 June 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I myself happen to be a fifth degree black belt (godan) and on many occasions have felt as goofy and clumsy as Farley's character in this funny gem. I truly love this movie, except it really saddens me to think Farley is not with us anymore. This guy was great. Rest in Peace big fellow. Thanks for this great, silly, funny movie.
