Rescued and adopted by a Ninja clan, Chris Farley undertakes a mission for a gorgeous American woman who suspects her husband of criminality. Believing himself fabled White Ninja, he takes on the mission of protecting the girl. On the way, he befriends and begins training his own student, bellhop Chris Rock. In true bumbling movie detective fashion, he interprets everything wrong, falls all over himself no matter which way he turns, and still manages to resolve the case. When the Popeye transformation comes, a great battle erupts at the end.

A Fitting Coda....

"Beverly Hills Ninja is NOT the best DVD you will ever own. it is not meant to be. It isn't even Farley's TRUE last movie. But it IS his final film as a lone star, and his star shines brightly.The story is simple enough. Legend states that a "Great White Ninja" will come to a Ninja Clan and bring Greatness. When a young baby washes ashore..it is assumed it is the Great White Ninja of Legend. It's not.From there on out, the plot is a haphazard mix of action, jokes, and some pieces of 'story'. The plot is admittedlty thin, but it serves its due just fine.Chris Rock is notable, but underused. This movie also provides a good showcase for Robin Shou, better known for 'Mortal Kombat'. His action scenes are fantastic.The best jokes seem to come the most natural...Farley with nunchuks, Farley in 'disguise', Farley's Spiritual 'Levitation'..and the Ninja Training sequence is a highlight of slapstick fun that previews what COULD have been.On the technical side, the DVD is Anamorphic, and has a helpful Spanish alternate language dub that is a GREAT feature. The rest of the disc is sadly 'Bare Bones'..just a trailer, and the obligatory 'Talent Files'.I DO wish there had been some deleted scenes, or even a commentary.The picture, as stated, is Anamorphic,it is in both widescreen(1:85) and pan&scan and displays very little grain. It is amazingly sharp and pleasant.Viewing this disc is a pure pleasure..and the sound, while not too active in surround, is rich and bold.I highly recommend this as a purchase. It can be viewed multiple times, and is never wearing enough to get 'old', thus upping its value as a purchase.This may be the last true "Chris Farley" film..he may have left us, but he left us laughing."

"What's there not to laugh at in this movie. The very concept of Farley playing a white Ninja just makes me laugh. This is a movie you watch more then once and laugh harder the second, third, fourth time around. There is some classic comedy in this movie. Some of my personal favoriate scenes are:
1)Farley in the Dojo practicing his Ninja moves and destroying, breaking, and burning everything he touches.
2)When he first meets Chris Rock - and teaches him his "first lessons" in the Ninja art.
3) When he disguised as a Cook.
4) When he disguised as Chuck Walters.
5) The ending battles with him and his brother Ninja.
The entire movie is a riot. It's very much on the stupid side (much like Dumb and Dumber) and is full of laughter. A comedy classic.. an underrated one at that.
Best Hilarious movie ever

"Don't be fooled with the negative reviews by critics or low scores by some movie review sites. .If you are not the type of viewer expecting some serious message or plot from a movie, watch just for pure entertainment then this is one of the best hilarious movie ever.Just relax and watch this movie. This is the first movie of Chris Farley I saw (on a tv channel in 2002) and instantly it made me his big big fan. I laughed and laughed and laughed through every singe moment of the movie.This is the one of the best spoof movies besides the light of naked gun series. Chris farley is the best in this kind of geners. Once you watch his devotion in the film and his funny facial expressions, body language ,you will surely consider other latest so called comedy stars and their movies so boring . I am from Bangladesh (Asia) and I don't know what people of USA and other countries think about this guy but he will always remain
as the best hilarious actor of all time in my mind. I think "Beverly Hills Ninja" is better than Farley's other titles (Even than "Tommy Boy"). Just uniquely hilarious. I give it 10/10."
