Beverly Hills Ninja

This was one of the late Chris Farley's final films and it's a shame it doesn't do him better justice. The title tells you all needed to figure out what this haphazzard strung together collection of skits is all about. Oddly enough the funniest bits come from "straight-man" Robin Shou who not only provides some fine martial-arts scenes but some great laughs as well. Chris Rock brings a few chuckles to the mix but it is my man Billy Connolly who steals the film in a sadly brief but super funny cameo. Not the best work from director Dennis Dugan who is kicking the box-offoce right now with YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN but you may find it useful for the kiddies.
