Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
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

Chris Farley was injured on the set while doing one of his own stunts. When he was trying to hide like a ninja and jump through the wall - during one take he dove into the wall and hit a stud which did not break. See more »
Gobei lassos the guard dog when Haru sneaks onto Tanley's estate. The dog later reappears still lassoed, but on the end of a different rope on a different part of the mansion. See more »

Is this the Takagura Dojo?
UUHH? Yyaa... I uummm...
Maybe I should come back later.
No wait, don't go, I mean... Yes this is the Takagura Dojo. Please come in and have a seat. I am Haru. Wait!

That's impressive. I am in need of a ninja, but you seem to be white.
Aaahhh. You are ...

This film is great for fans of Chris Farley. Since I am a fan I liked it more than most people would. But if I really look at this movie as a normal moviegoer and not biased I'd say it's a silly, messy, clumsy piece of work.
The story is just there to show off Chris Farley's goofiness which it does quite well. None of it believable for a second but I don't think it is supposed to be.
The music used throughout fits it good enough. The acting is average at best. Of all Farley movies this is one of the best.
Overall I would definitely recommend this film to fan's of Farley's antics. See it for that reason only.
