The "What Is a Ninja?" speech is mentioned three times in this film. Each time it is said, Colt is always the one who says Spirit. Everyone else gets to mention Heart, Mind and Body. See more »
When the boys are ordering the tickets to Tokyo using their grandpas recording from the answering machine, Colt plays the part where Mori Shintaro screams. The problem is after the lady asks if the price is OK Colt makes the tape say "yeah everything" , but the problem is their grandpa said "yeah they took everything" so there would be no way Colt could get past those two words that fast without listening to make sure he hit the right words.

If you've seen this movie, you might be around my age and saw it when you were a kid. I remember getting this movie from a video rental store, back when video rental stores were a big deal. It doesn't seem like a movie that has lived on, or watched by kids of today. But, even so I feel like the characters: Rocky, Colt, and Tum Tum are memorable characters. More memorable than most movie siblings. For some reason, they've always reminded me of the brothers in Malcolm In The Middle, since I've been familiar with that show.
Anyway, this movie is an unnecessary movie and it's a very silly movie. Pretty much the whole movie is silly, hardly anything is serious. The cheese factor of this movie might be a reason we don't want to watch it feeling like it's a silly kids movie. But, even so this movie is hilarious. I don't see how you could not crack up while watching this movie? The humor in this movie will probably crack you up more than the humor in a lot of other movies. While this movie is silly, it is undeniably very funny. The hospital scenes with the nurses were pretty clever and funny, including a giant scary nurse, lol.
This movie is also cool, because it shows martial arts ninja style which naturally seems intriguing. It takes us to Japan, to make the movie more interesting. That being said, I feel like they could have done a better job of showing us around Japan, at least Tokyo and given us more of a feel of actually traveling to Japan. For example, a movie that came out later that also involves traveling to another country and martial arts is the 2010 Karate Kid. That's entertaining because it presents a feel of being in China. I feel like Japan in this movie was presented mostly for the martial arts scenes, and plot of good guys vs bad guys.
The plot of the movie also gets slightly interesting with an Indiana Jones/National Treasure plot. There is a legendary, supposedly hidden Cave Of Gold that could possibly only be accessed by having certain weapons including a dagger we see in the movie. However, while this plot makes the movie more interesting, it wasn't a well-written plot, not the same as in Indiana Jones or National Treasure.
If we see these movies we probably remember the love interests of Rocky. Including in the first one, that memorable chant from the brothers, "Rocky Loves Emily." Well, in this movie we're introduced to another ninja character a female ninja named Miyo. One very tough girl, and skilled martial artist. She is a well-written character.
One other comment to make with this movie, and you might get mad and strongly disagree, but to me personally this movie has what has to be one of the best movie ending scenes ever. I feel like most movies do not have very strong or memorable ending scenes. But, the ending scene is definitely memorable and might have you laughing. A good way to end a comedic non-serious movie. A very strong ending indeed!!
So yeah, this movie is very silly enough to probably keep you from wanting to watch it. But, even so I bet if you gave it a try, you'd probably have a nice laugh watching this!! After all, laughter is the best medicine, hee-hee-hee!!
