'Beverly Hills Ninja'

Chris Farley plays the inept Haru, an orphaned white child who is reared by the master teacher at a secret Japanese dojo. The ninjas thought that little Haru would grow into the Great White Ninja of legend, but he grows into "an embarrassment to ninjas everywhere." He demonstrates his klutzy, but well-meaning nature while pursuing a counterfeiter from Tokyo to Beverly Hills. His ninja master secretly sends Haru's older brother, Gobei, to watch over the poor boob. -- Rita Kempley
