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>

Trivia

According to an A&E biography, Chris Farley hated the film upon seeing it for the very first time and told his agent that he never wanted to do such a film again. Farley's stance was justified as it arguably attributed to the exploitation of his manic, physical humor by dumbing it down and playing it out to an almost tiring and foolish degree. See more »

Goofs

When Gobei sits in the wheelchair with a broken arm, he manages use that arm for lifting it over his own head to take off his medal which he places around Haru's neck. He does this swiftly and without showing any pain, yet he complains about his broken arm sitting still when Haru hugs him. See more »

Quotes

Allison: [walks in and stands in the Dojo doorway] Hello?
[jumps and the Bo staff in Harus hands flies across the room]
Allison: Is this the Takagura Dojo?
Haru: UUHH? Yyaa... I uummm...
Allison: Maybe I should come back later.
Haru: No wait, don't go, I mean... Yes this is the Takagura Dojo. Please come in and have a seat. I am Haru. Wait!
[stops her from sitting on a pair of throwing stars, throws them behind him and hits a target with perfect aim]
Allison: That's impressive. I am in need of a ninja, but you seem to be white.
Haru: Aaahhh. You are ...

One of the funniest movies ever!
16 April 2003 | by Jared (Jar1239)See all my reviews

Relax! Laugh your butt off!!! It's Chris Farley!!!!! Reading through other comments posted here, I notice that people are using five or six big paragraphs to review this. There's really not enough about this movie to be spending so much time reviewing it. Don't see this movie hoping for a great story or accurate ninja fighting action, or compelling drama like some of the commentors here seem dissapointed with. Take the stick out yer bum and relax. Just enjoy Chris Farley at his best. Few movies have ever made me laugh harder. I'm not an aged 8-14 male.
