Did You Know?


One Royce O'Donnell is credited as Cookie in the end credits while another character, the Smallest Ninja, played by another actor, Takeshi Garcia, is referred to as Cookie throughout the movie. This is likely unintentionally confusing. See more »

Crazy Credits

At least two characters are designated differently in the credits from the progress of the plot. Tiffany Salerno's character, the hot babe, is referred to as Jackie throughout the movie but as Wendy in the end credits. Likewise Takeshi Garcia's character, the youngest of the heroes, is referred to as Cookie throughout the movie but as Smallest Ninja in the end credits. However, one Royce O'Donnell is credited as Cookie, just under Garcia's name. See more »

A wonderful children's film
15 January 2003 | by fsvkdiSee all my reviews

This was a very charming children's movie. My children watched it several times. I would highly recommend it to parents that are concerned about excessive violence and sexual content. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing this with my children. I only wish there were more of this type of film produced today.
