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

Haru's gold pieces on the hotel counter change from five in one shot, to fourteen in the next shot, and then to eight in the last shots. See more »
Haru, you are truly the Great White Ninja.
[Haru laughs, turns around, and sees Tanley's men staring at him with their arms folded]
Did I say "ninja"? I meant "ninny". Haru, you are such a ninny.

This is my son's favorite movie. Of course he is 10. My husband and I watch it and find it entertaining as well. It is silly and the physical comedy can be over the top, but that is classic Farley. We also like Tommy Boy, another Farley classic, and Dirty Works also with Farley, all though that flick is definitely not appropriate for children. Beverly Hills Ninja, however is appropriate for most children 10 and over. Pretty mild by today's standards.
One of my favorite performances in this movie is the work of supporting actor Robin Shou. He is a great straight man and shows great martial arts skills as well as comedic timing. Chris Rock also has a small roll in this film.
